Australia tends to sit on them for about 2 weeks.
But it get's worse.
ARGENTINA.
I mailed a package priority mail and 6 weeks later it had still not arrived.
So I mailed replacement pieces by Express mail.
They have been sitting in Argentina Customs since October 12th.
One customer there said they have to go to the customs office and spend the day to get their packages, or wait a month or two until they decide to process them through customs.

It used to be better - or at least there used to be about 50/50 chance they'd just let an item through without delay. Now it seems I'm lucky if it's stuck in customs for only a week. I've had 3 items now that have each taken about 2-3 weeks.

US customs can be just as bad. I just had some buffalo horn stuck there for 3 weeks.
