    A quick question to all Pakistani BHW members and other non united stated members that how long it really takes to receive a cheque in Pakistan or any Asian country.

    This is the first time I am receiving payment via cheque. Previously I was using wire transfer to receive my earnings.

    Doesn't that depend on the postal service there? How is the postal service there?

    With the conflicts in the region and the terrain, I can't imagine the check will arrive in under a month if letters sent amongst civilians probably take just as long.

    Bank wires are safe and so much faster. They exist for a reason, for direct handling of money between financial institutions without having to count on a postal worker who has a small salary from going to a shady bank with your check and cashing it out for himself. Colleague told me a story of this happening to him.

    Normally 10-14 days. It is good to wait for 2 weeks at least.
    And yes as ithebest6 says pakistan postal service is totally rubbish. Please don't shock if I say you postman that come to deliver letter does not know English. I receive 4 checks from clickbank and all of the time my neighbor give handed me. So stay away as much as you can.
