USPS shipping from US to Kuwait?

asked Jan 6, 2017 in Other by Zack
Does anyone has any experience shipping any items using USPS from US to Kuwait? How was your experience, does the mail get transferred to kuwait mail service.. Customs? I'm planning on sending my brother an Iphone and I'm not sure if I should use USPS but its definitely cheapest shipping option.. would love to hear about everyone experience?

Mail gets transferred to Kuwait mail service and will be checked by customs.

It takes a lot longer, like probably a month to arrive here. An iPhone is small and light so I would recommend using a door to door company instead of USPS, shouldn't cost that much more for the size. If he has a shop and ship account it would cost under KD10 to arrive to Kuwait.
