Advertisement


Question
I have had mailed some important documents via express priority international return receipt mail with guaranteed delivery. Long story short Greek customs refuse to release the package that is very time sensitive or return it back to me. I believe this maybe do to an address problem. Please Kindly Help.
The address I have is as follows:
Name,Taxydromikh Thyrida 213) Eksamilia, Krointhos T-K 20100 Greece

Please how would i write this for best results of delivery?

Sincerely,
Angelika K

Answer
Hello Angelika

Merry Xmas

The problem with letters via express priority is that they need to have the name of the recipient on them.

The name Taxydromiki Thyrida in Greek stands for P.O. Box and I think this is the reason of the returning.

The other reason is that perhaps this P.O. Box 213 does not exist.

So either find out the real name of the recipient and send it via express priority or send it without express priority but make sure that the P.O.Box is correct.

By the way, I couldn’t find the P.O. Box of the recipient in the following address.
