Is anyone currently experiencing what I am experiencing currently?

I ordered a drive enclosure over 2 months ago and shipping has been slow. 2 weeks or so ago the tracking status changes to "[Beirut] Arrive at the place of delivery" but no further progress has been made. This is the first time something has taken this long to be delivered and I starting to worry that customs do not want to clear this 6$ enclosure I bought.


My shipment still in customs. It is a grid for my softbox lighting. 23$ in total. And I am still waiting.

Libanpost's tracking tool isn't even showing the order as arrived in Lebanon.

This is the Carrier's tracking site.

I started a dispute and the seller extended buyer protection till mid September. No idea why it is taking so long and why took almost two months to even reach Lebanon.

Re: AliExpress in Lebanon

Most probably the tracking is wrong. The seller will contact you later and tell you that the item has been returned to them and they will issue you a refund. It happened to me 3 times in the last month (from three different sellers!)

I wouldn't worry since it appeared on Libanpost page so the package arrived at least!

Re: AliExpress in Lebanon

I asked Edifier salesman in the app why they don't have standard shipping, he said it was removed for Lebanon.
Though I still can buy things like cables and accessories under 15$ with aliexpress standard shipping or China Airmail. Again I am afraid that the Lebanese government asked AE to stop facilitating shipments for any products above 15$ :(

Re: AliExpress in Lebanon

I don't think Lebanon has the power to get China to do this. They wouldn't risk losing sales because no one would buy anything and pay the ridiculous shipping fee's. I think it's just a Covid situation and will go back, you will find some supplier still ship through standard mail.

Re: AliExpress in Lebanon

Hello
it's my first time ordering from aliexpress
I have a question, when should my orders appear on LibanPost's website? before reaching Lebanon or when they arrive, because i have 4 orders 1 of them says it arrived at the destination country, but still, none of the orders show up on the LibanPost tracking tool.

Re: AliExpress in Lebanon

Arrived at destination country can mean:
-it arrived at Beirut but it didn't even enter the customs
-it arrived at the  last country before Lebanon, knowing AE shipments can travel through 2 to 4 different countries before Lebanon

Well DHL deliver it much faster, they will also pass it through the customs so you will pay more, no explanation for that, this is how DHL have been since ever

it's sad that DHL is the only shipment method available for this item, I don't mind waiting 2 months for a FREE shipping

Re: AliExpress in Lebanon

Is China Post forbidden to deliver to Lebanon?
This is my second order where I pay +2$ for China Post airmail and they replace it by another like Cainao or Sunyou, BTW dunno if I should reclaim the 2$ I paid for the China Post option, the other ones are free, they called it ''Cainao standart shipping'' instead of ''Cainao economy''
The Sunyou one arrived at Beirut's custom at the start of the month right before lockdown, so I guess I won't receive it before mid-February

Re: AliExpress in Lebanon

yes it is forbidden, they are stillout of sync and didn't know that postal services resumed shortly the beirut explosion and henxe they blocked mail to Lebanon. in fact, I have something shipped using Canaio super for 2 months now with no update.
PostNL resumed shipping to Lebanon 2 weeks ago.
