    Images aren't showing.. here is what Parcel Force says:
    "Collected 4/1/2017 20:02
    Despatched to the UK 5/1/2017 2:49"

    EMS tracking says the same.

    Put the tracking number in Parcel Forces track and trace, it might give you more info.

    EMS can be a bit hit and miss on transit time but my advice would be to contact the supplier for more information and of course, what the expected transit time was.

    Thank you for the reply.

    Unfortunately, the seller just keeps telling me to be more patient because it's "busy season". Usually they estimate 5-15 days but they say it can take up to a month in some circumstances.

    Do you think it is possible that the package is just lost? If so, how long would it take to be declared lost?

    It is coming up to CNY which may cause some delays. I'd personally give it another week or two.

    Thankfully it just arrived in the UK today, and is now awaiting customs clearance! Any idea how long it will take to get to me now?

    Probably a couple of days depending on how busy they are.
