I recently sent a letter on the 17th January that arrived on the 5th, 19 days later and yet a card I sent for valentine's on Thursday only took 12 days

or rather than asking "how much does it take", ask whether it will arrive or not...that must be the question involving a little bit of exageration..

The smaller the town the longer it takes for it to arrive. Some places the recipient gets a note to pick it up at the PTT, but that also tends to never arrive to they have to go to the PTT and check if it's there. ALso very time consuming generally...
Once my father sent me a package with a couple of books and it took it a month to arrive and I wasn't even living in a village or anything. It took an entire afternoon and I also had to pay a ridiculous high VAT grrrrr, a very bad unexpected expense when living in a country like Turkey.
Sending packages is generally not the best idea imo as things tend to get lost.

Mail is usually not a problem but you never know how long time it takes, it varies +/- 20 days

I sent some packages to Turkey several times in the past (with registered posts).
None of them got lost and arrived in 4- 5 days.
What are you trying to do here? eh?
Trying to look for a reason to criticize Turkey? eh?
