So, you just got a message that says, “International Item Has Left Originating Country and is En Route to Canada.” Wondering what that means? Don’t worry; I’m here to explain everything to you, step by step.
What’s Happening with Your Package?
This message means your package has left its starting place (the country it came from) and is now on its way to Canada. Imagine it like your package took a flight or ride and is heading over to see you!
Understanding International Item Has Left Originating Country
While the update from Canada Post seems pretty clear, let’s chat about it a bit more. This alert pops up when your package has said goodbye to its original country. Now, picture this: your parcel might be in the belly of an airplane, flying high in the sky. Or, if it’s coming from somewhere close like the USA, it might be in a truck, cruising on the highway, headed to Canada.
Basically, your package is traveling and will be in Canada soon!
When the package lands in Canada, it will have to go through customs. Think of customs like a checkpoint; they just want to make sure everything’s okay with what’s inside the package. Once it’s cleared, your package will continue its journey straight to your doorstep.
How Long Until the Next Update?
Let’s dive into how long it might take before you get another update on your awaited package.
Waiting for a package can be like waiting for a surprise, right? The time it takes for your package to get to Canada depends on a couple of things. Like, how fast the postal service is working and how far the package has to travel.
Packages from the USA: If your package is coming super fast from our neighbors in the USA, it might arrive in Canada within a day! That’s like a quick visit from a friend next door. You’ll then see an update saying, “Item has arrived in Canada.”
(Just a heads up: if the message says “Item has arrived in Canada and has presented for review”, it’s like the package is going through a quick bag check. You can learn more about that here).
Packages from Faraway Places, like China: If you’ve ordered something cool from China, it might take a bit longer. It’s like your package is on a long vacation before coming to see you. Some of these packages might even be coming by boat! So, hang tight because it can take a few weeks for the next update.
Trading Stuck on “International Item Has Left Originating Country and is En Route to Canada”
Did you find this because your package status hasn’t changed for a while? It happens.
- For Slow Shipments, Especially from Far Places: If your package is coming from somewhere like China and it’s taking the scenic route, the tracking might feel stuck. Imagine it’s enjoying the long ride, and you won’t hear from it until it reaches Canada.
- For Faster Shipments or Packages from the USA: If your package is supposed to come quickly or is coming from the USA and it’s been days without an update, you might be a bit worried. It’s like waiting for a text back from a friend who usually replies fast. If it’s been more than 3 to 5 days, it might be a good idea to chat with Canada Post.
Who to Chat With?
If you’re feeling anxious, you can talk to Canada Post or even reach out to the person or company who sent you the package. Sometimes, they might have info to share.
Remember, right now, your package is traveling to Canada. It’s a bit like it’s on a road trip, and the people who sent it can’t really check on it until it reaches its next stop, which will be with Canada Post after the customs check.
