    I think it should be OK. It takes 4-5 days from the Czech Republic, si it shouldn't be any longer from Portugal.

    There's a backlog of mail in the system from Christmas, it might not arrive on time... Especially as there are bank holidays here.

    Depends how much the paper weighs. If it's more than 1kg, it could take up to 56 months, so remember to weigh it before you send it.

    Thank me later.

    I would stop stressing if I were you. Most unis broke up on the 17th and won't start back until at least 10th January so I really wouldn't worry. Post it tomorrow by all means but it should be waiting for them when they get back from their break. Everyone here knows the post has been messed up by the weather anyways so they're likely to be lenient.
