Are you waiting for an IBA certificate?

We have had a heck of a time , more so in the past six months, in getting certificates from the U.S. to Australia. I KNOW that many certificates that have not been received have been mailed, because I mailed those certificates myself. We sent one package to a rider that was not received after six weeks; then sent a replacement package to the same rider that was not received for five weeks; and then sent a third package with tracking (the cost, with tracking was $46). The tracking package arrived six weeks later, having been routed through Paris, Frankfurt, Dubai and Singapore.

After receipt of package #3, package #2 arrived one week later, and package #1 arrive two weeks after that.

What a mess!

We may have come up with a method to get certificates to Australia which we tested and seems to work. So here's what I need from you.

Please tell me what certificates you are waiting for. Give me the date of the ride, and the date you sent the application to [email protected]. If you sent your application to some other emailbox, tell me that also.

I will make every effort to get your certificates to you promptly.

Hi every one, my awaited certs turned up today.
A brief history.. https://forum.ironbutt.org/index.php?threads/ride-certification-in-a-timely-manner.4183/
the oddity with todays delivery is that it has come from New Zealand IBA?
from the date stamp it looks like it was sent on or about the 10th of Nov?
How did this work, can we no have IBA australia print its own certs to negate the international post delay?
condidering the last email i had from the IBA USA was on the 31st OCT saying they had been sent from the USA?
I have a small brain and it is confused as to where all the certs for these rides have gone.. at least 3 sets have been sent over the last 18 months?

I'm the same as you Frog. Awaiting two outstanding certificates. Got conformation from Howard that the'd been OK'd and they were on their way. Then I received email from New Zealand saying my certificates had been sent. All very "confusing". All that matters is that I'll have them soon.

I think Biggles has it... attached are pics of the package, still don't know why IBA Australia isn't trusted to receive electronic copies, print and forward on to members, after all i thought that was why Mike created IBA Australia 4-5 years ago, to promote the business and take some load off IBA USA, not put it on IBA NZ?
Howard, do you allow other countries to certify and print their own certificates.

Yup, I'm equally confused. I've received several emails from Chris Wiltshire (who is a NZe'r) advising my certificates have been posted....but as this is 2020, nothing is unexpected.
