    Not sure if this is in the proper forum, but it IS about a Transformers toy so....

    how long should a registered mail package take to ship from Singapore to the USA? Does registered mail mean boat, plane? I want to place another order for something else but not sure if i should do so until I get my 1st order. I don't lose a lot of money!

    It depends, honestly.

    If it's Registered AIR Mail, you should receive it in 3 weeks or less. (That includes the day the seller drops it off at the Post Office, not just international dispatch to the US.)

    I cannot confirm it, since I've never paid for SAL shipping (Boat) but I heard it can be registered too. (I'm thinking that's incorrect, anyone clear that up, please?)

    If it was sent by air, 3 weeks or less.
    If it was sent by land, 3 months or less. (No, I'm not kidding.)
    If it was sent by EMS, 1 week or less.

    I'd imagine you'll see it in about 2 weeks. Does it come with a tracking number?

    SAL/registered/airmail (different names for the same thing) = a week and a half
    EMS = 3 days
    surface = at least a month, if not more.

    Yes, I have a tacking number. It is apparently on the way to JFK but I don't know how. Just kinda wondered what the actual timeframe for something like this is. If it's a boat, I know it will take a while...

    The origin is showing as "registered mail section." I am part curious, part antsy. Never had anything shipped from overseas like this...Not panicking yet as it's only been a week, just didn't know when to start looking out for it.

    Oh yeah. It'll move by air.

    What is the last update on the tracking information? (That'll help me assist you better.)
