the only place you can use that reference is on the royal mail website and it gives this information only

Your item, posted on 24/10/07 with reference RI922570114GB has been passed to the overseas postal service for delivery in POLAND.
Also this is further info from the royal mail website regarding international signed for
Please note that International Signed For® items are only tracked up until the point that they leave the UK. Airsure® items are tracked abroad and you’ll get confirmation of final delivery.


i would speak to the receiptant in poland to ensure they have received the parcel :)

THANKS JUST BEEN ON THE WEBSITE I THINK IT WAS IN POLAND ON 26 OCT. IT SEEMS THAT IT HAS NOT YET BEEN SENT TO THE FINAL DESTINATION.

Debianco   Oct 30, 2007, 06:13am /  #
I HAVE JUST TRIED THE TELEPHONE NUMBER SASYS IT IS NOT RECOGNISED. IS IT AN INTERNAL POLISH NUMBER?

Krzysztof   Oct 30, 2007, 06:14am /  #
it's a info line (with reduced charges) - I guess they work only within Poland

Krzysztof   Oct 30, 2007, 06:22am /  #
I just called them. They say that 26 Oct is when it arrived to a British overseas postal service (you posted it on 24 Oct, so it took 2 days before it arrived there), then there was the weekend, so the parcel should arrive to Pocztex anytime soon - the info on the website should be updated if anything happens.

Debianco   Oct 30, 2007, 06:27am /  #
THANKS KRZYSZTOL!!!I WILL KEEP CHECKING THE WEBSITE FOR DEVELOPMENTS

Krzysztof   Oct 30, 2007, 06:38am /  #

Debianco   Nov 4, 2007, 12:56pm /  #
thanks krzystof-its driving me crazy not only not being able to contact him. but not knowing that he will get the parcel.

I could take a few weeks to be honest, Royal Mail have some cheap 'signed for' option to foreign countries but in the small print it says can take up to 21 day sor something and it does. I've had a couple of things sent from the UK to Poland by that method and it took 2-3 weeks.

Debianco   Nov 4, 2007, 01:11pm /  #
oh i see the post office told me it would take-4-5 working days

Debianco   Nov 4, 2007, 01:12pm /  #
he probably be back before it arrives-so much for the surprise-and this stress-things you do for love

telefonitika   Nov 4, 2007, 01:33pm /  #
i have sent a parcel just by normal parcel methods ie small packet cost me £9.50 there abouts to Poland and only took 4-5 days to reach the person in krakow :)

hi everyone -my post eventually has arrived to the address in poland !!! nearly a month!! he hasnt got it yet-he is still in norway!! its at the office. still cant connect the phone calls. will ask for help on this by posting another thread

just wanted you to know the post arrived

bookratt   Nov 28, 2007, 11:50am /  #
I have the same thing with US mail. A month or more for small packages to arrive here to me in Krakow. I have also had my letters come from the US within 5 days of posting, so I think it is a crapshoot, as to whether it will be fast or slow.

And it depends, also, on the contents and perhaps in how you fill out the declarations papers which accompany the items. Both times we were sent legal papers in a padded envelope, the manifest said "legal documents" and they came within 5 days. These were not legal papers, but were forwarded personal mail sent by my mom.

The padded envelopes, also sent by my mom, marked "personal mail" took 2-3 weeks and the one with "miscellaneous" marked on it took 35 days.

Same method of mailing (US global priority mail), same cost, same start city in the US and same end city (Krakow).

Just depends on how they handle it once it gets here.

I am glad they finally received it.

From the Uk to Poland Int signed for. Can take UPTO 20 Days.
Depending on Weekends. And Holidays. And Package size and weight.
But it usually it only takes 10 to 14.

I feel i should warn you..
If your post isnt collected by the Recipient with 12 days.
It is automatically returned to the sender.

It happened to me.
So i hope .. A hes back in time. B you put a return adress on it

I`m waiting for delivery from GB to PL
what means the letters "RI" in the beggining of the code RI6073xxxxxGB ??

can somebody help me please ?

Maybe you will be more careful and pay for the tracking next time, where you can follow it to it's final destination. I learned the hard way. I'm still waiting for my Christmas present from 2001!

Poczta Polska is notorious for parcels being stolen. And equally miserable for giving feedback on where your stolen parcel might be.
Pay a bit more (TNT, DHL, UPS) and your precious actually might arrive you know... and on time.

Ericlipis:

pay for the tracking next time


what tracking? There is no tracking available at the Polish end. If you pay for tracking when posting from the UK then the tracking only works until the package leaves the UK, so that doesn't really help much.....

Tracking most certainly is available at the Polish end. I know this because a contact at Poczta Polska was able to track a parcel (admittedly sent USPS rather than Royal Mail), see the dates the postman claimed to have attempted delivery and left notification slips (as this is an office building, there was video proof of him attempting delivery two days later than claimed and refusing to leave a notification slip plus video proof that he hadn't been here on the second date), as well as tell me the post office the parcel was waiting at after the supposed delivery attempts.

However, that is very much the exception and not the rule. I estimate that about 10% of my parcels are stolen by Polish postal workers. Two of the three parcels posted by my family in the UK on or before 10 December have not yet arrived, along with one of the two parcels I posted on 12 December.

That Poczta Polska is not widely considered a national disgrace speaks volumes about Poland.

Harry:

Yes there is tracking in that they keep a record of what the postman did, but there is no online tracking as such so that you can see what the status is of your package which is what Ericlipis was suggesting.

Also, from my experience of querying what happened to a parcel I sent (from Poland to the UK via registered post) they wouldn't check their records for 3 months from the date of posting...
