http://track-chinapost.com/startairmail.php shows CP396285849CN was sent to airline on April 19. it is waiting for flight to Pakistan. There is much flight between China and Pakistan, such low priority parcel's waiting time can take 6 to 12 weeks. You won't see any update during such waiting time.

If there is any news about this parcel , we will write a post in this thread.

Hope this helps.

The tracking shows the parcel status as "Arrival at the Destination" on April 19th. What does that mean? Has it arrived or is it in transit? How long can transit take for Pakistan?

Arrival at the Destination means the item arrives a transit port, not in Pakistan yet. Your parcel is called SAL parcel which has very low priority to get flight space. Normally such CP***CN parcel will take 2 to 3 months to reach Pakistan(occasionally it will take half year). Also SAL parcel to Pakistan has high lost rate, It is not a recommend method to ship goods to Pakistan.

If there is any new update about CP396285849CN, we will write a new post in this thread.

The parcel contains very important documents, is there a way I can change the priority? I did not know about the lost rate

unfortunately you can't upgrade priority after the parcel is shipped. The parcel is locked inside a postal container with other low priority parcels to Pakistan. the container is sealed by China customs officer and it can be only opened by Pakistan customs officer.

Soo what's the probability of not losing my documents? And can I expect it to arrive by next month hopefully?

Good news: as document normally is useless to thieves, so you have more than 90% chance to receive it in future.

Bad news: the shipper used a very cheap and slow SAL parcel which might take 3 to 6 months to reach Pakistan(He should use EMS). Based on our stat, this SAL parcel has less than 20% chance to reach Pakistan within 30 days which means you are less likely to get it in May.

Hey, I was just reading my receipt for the Post, I don't know how to post a picture for reference here but I just noticed. In the receipt, In category of parcel "Air" is ticked and not SAL. Also there is a stamp on it with "Airmail" written on it. Soo I am wondering what category is the mail

SAL parcel is same as airmail if weight is less than 2kgs. So Air label in the parcel is fine.

However, SAL and Airmail are all low priority category which has to wait long time to get airline space. You need to use EMS parcel to send important document.
