If your item did not reach its destination, you can request our item inquiry service

Use the item inquiry service for items posted at Österreichische Post for shipping that did not reach their destination. Item inquiries are available only for national items (within 3 months) and international items (within 6 months) with proof of posting, 5 days after posting at the earliest and within the specific item inquiry timeframes. The timeframe for Post Express items is 3 months and for registered mail items and insured letters, it is 6 months.

For all items from abroad, only the sender or the international shipping company can initiate the item inquiry. For international mail, we recommend placing your item inquiry order around 2 to 3 weeks after posting at the earliest, depending on the country of destination.

Before requesting our item inquiry service, please go to item tracking to check your item's status.
