Can anyone give me an idea how long it takes for bettas to travel from Thailand to California? I’m using Julie Trans for my transshipment.

Hi and welcome!

The seller should be able to give you full information, including a shipping number so that you can track the package.
Failing that, the shipping company should be able to give you a good idea of typical shipping times.
You really need an accurate arrival time and date so that you can be available to accept the package and unload the fish.

70litre tank: mature setup; betta, purple rasboras, male guppies, amano and wood shrimp. Heavily planted.
22litre cube tank: (Tagawa); betta, yellow dwarf shrimp. Pond snails and 1 assassin. Heavily planted.
Midnight in the 57litre tank (Midnight) ember tetras, 1 amano, 1 ghost, 1 nerite, pond snails, 1 assassin, doing his thing. Heavily planted.
200litre tank; honey gourami, cherry barbs, green neons, otocinclus, nerites, pond snails, amano. Heavily planted.

It isn't the same for all. Most sellers don't sent fish out one at a time but wait until they have several orders so they can ship to the US in one package. Sometimes it takes a month; sometimes less; sometimes more. Julie should be able to give you the most accurate information.

Are you worried because you haven't received an ordered fish?

Hi, I live in California and use Julie too. From what I understand, Thailand vendors ship to Julie to receive fish by Saturday or Sunday. Then she ships out to you on Monday overnight for you to receive by Tuesday. This is assuming you have paid all the fees she invoices you for.
I believe this is a weekly process. It may differ from time to time but this has been my experience.
