I sent a letter from Montevideo, Uruguay to Romania, via the Uruguay Post. At the post office they told me it would arrive after 15 days.

It has been almost 30 days and the letter did not arrive. Since I am traveling, I am not in Montevideo anymore and I am not sure what I should do to check the package.

The package does not have a tracking number, and that's why I guess that even if I would contact the post office they would not be able to help much...

I do hope it is just delaying, but is there anything else I can do rather than just waiting?

  • Was it something like recorded delivery ? You can try getting in touch in Romania, but without any tracking I don't think it will be of much help either. – DumbCoder Dec 2 '19 at 12:58
  • @DumbCoder I think it's just a simple letter without tracking or anything like that... From my experience with the Romanian Post they don't check based on the address even if the package has a tracking number... They have the mapping between tracking numbers and the package metadata written physically in a notebook, by hand. For some packages they do provide online tracking, but that never worked for me. – Ionică Bizău Dec 2 '19 at 14:46

I contacted the post office but since the letter did not have any tracking number, it was impossible to track.

If the package does have a tracking number, it is easier to follow.

If it does not have, then the only thing that can be done in general is to wait. In my particular case, it delayed about a month and eventually arrived.
