How Many Days Does AliExpress Take To Deliver The Product?

Siddharth Giri/ 30th Dec, 2019/ Importing Guide

AliExpress Delivery time varies, depending on destination and the shipping method. The parcel takes less time to reach some countries such as India, USA, UK, etc. While Some Countries such as Russia and Brazil takes double time compared to other countries. So, There’s no way to calculate the exact transit time but in this article, I’ll try to give you an average delivery time.

Actually, AliExpress’s Shipping Methods are very confusing. So, I will try to divide it into three parts and also show you some tracking results of the parcel to give you an idea.

Please note that I will give you an average time based on my experience (Indian Address). But, If you’re from another country then you can scroll down to the bottom of this page to see the average time.

AliExpress Shipping Methods:

1) Unregistered Air Mail:

As per the AliExpress, this shipping method takes between 30-45 days to reach the destination. But, I have tried this shipping method so many times and till now received my parcel only 2 times — the first one took more than 90 days and the second one took only 23 days. So, you can say that delivery of these parcels depends on your luck, If you’re lucky then you can receive it within a month otherwise it can take forever to reach the destination. I will not suggest you unregistered air mail even for a low-value item.

Here’s The List of Some Unregistered Air Mail:

  • China Post Ordinary Small Packet Plus
  • 4PX Singapore Post OM Pro
  • YunExpress Economic Air Mail
  • SunYou Economic Air Mail
  • POS Malaysia Economic Air Mail

2) Registered Air Mail:

As per the AliExpress, this shipping method takes between 30-45 days to reach the destination and AliExpress is almost true. Most of the time, it takes between 30-35 days.

I’ve used various Registered Post such as HongKong Post, Belgium Post, Turkey Post, Vietnam Post, Netherlands Post, Sweden Post, etc. and delivery speed of all the parcel is almost similar. But most of the time, they shipped my parcel using Singapore Post or China Post that’s why I am just showing you the total number of days taken by the Singapore Post and China Post.

Here you can see the tracking result for different shipping methods.

a) Singapore Post Registered Air Mail: As you can see in the below screenshot, Singapore Post Registered Air Mail takes less than a month or sometimes takes between 35-40 days.

b) China Post Registered Air Mail: As you can see in the below screenshot, Sometimes China Post Registered Air Mail takes less than a month and sometimes it takes a little longer time.

3) Expedited Shipping:

EMS, DHL, FedEx, Aramex, etc. are considered as the Expedited Shipping but I rarely use these shipping methods because Registered Air Mail works best for me. However, I have used Express Mail Service(EMS) a few times. So, you can see the tracking result in the below image.

Note: I had imported a laptop using EMS and Customs clearance is very faster in EMS compared to registered post that’s why I had received my laptop only in 22 days while a registered post will take more than 35 to deliver the same product.

Additional Tips: The costly product takes a little longer time to get customs clearance. So, It’ll take longer than expected to reach the destination. But Don’t Worry, If you’ll select a registered post or EMS then you’ll definitely receive your product.

Delivery Time For Other Countries:

If you’re from another country then you can check the below table to know the average delivery time for your country.

Note: Below table is not based on my personal experience. I have taken this table from here.
