Brazilian Post Office is on Strike!!!!

Recommended Posts

I can't believe this is happening to us, BUT our I-129f petition left NVC on 6/27/08 for the Rio de Janeiro Consulate, after waiting nearly 8 months for approval. It still hasn't arrived at the consulate because the Brazilian Post Office is on strike and it won't be delivered until the strike is over. The Consulate tells us every time we call - "it won't be delivered until the strike is over" - WHY ME?!!!!! I remember stories about the Canadian postal strike where bags of mail were lit on fire and thrown in the river...... Let's hope that doesn't happen!

Jen,

after you sent me a message and also because of a friend of mine, I called the Consulate. Technically DHL should have nothing to do with the post (at least that's what I thought, since it's a courrier delivery). The lady at the Consulate explained it to me that even though it's a courrier system, it still has to go through the post office.

I tracked the packages that were sent from NVC to Brazil and there's one package there that was delivered 2 days ago.

The brazilian post is ALWAYS on strike, and they will stop it on Monday - that's what's planned!

Best of luck to all of you!

I agree with Renatchi. This should be cleared up very shortly.

And I am kind of an expert in Brazilian and Argentino labor and law. This was what I did when I was working in Brazil and Argentina. We were having labor issues and these little strikes in our company. I was sent down to fix these problems and ensure we would not have them anymore.

These strikes usually only last a few days, if that long. The workers make their point and get back to work, most of the time.

Good luck

Thanks for the upbeat words of advice you guys. I hope you're all correct and this will end soon.

Renata - how is it that you track packages shipped from NVC and their arrival at the consulate? NVC wouldn't give me a tracking number.

Thanks!

Go to http://track.dhl-usa.com/TrackByRef.asp?nav=TrackByRef .

in the reference put EXP XX XXX 2008a . XX XXX being the day it was shipped. The day they say it was shipped you use the next day, because that is actually the day it was picked up by DHL. The day they say it was shipped is the day the called it in. EG. if they say it was shipped 27 JUN, you would put EXP 30 JUN 2008a. Normally it would be the next day, but since the 27th was a friday, they would not have picked it up until Monday the 30th.

Then scroll through and look for the shipment going to Rio.

Thank you so much for the info. I checked and the packet to Rio was delivered 7/9. Does that mean it was delivered to the consulate or delivered to the Rio Post Office?

Thanks a bunch you guys!

Jen

quando eu falei com a moça no consulado ela me falou que o caso sai do NVC pelo correio normal e não pelo DHL, na verdade nem sei em quem acreditar mais :wacko::wacko: .......... espero que isso não tenha a ver com a greve do correio pq assim ainda podemos ter esperança de chegar proxima semana então........se DEUS quizer....AFF!!!
