How long does it take to receive a Google post card in Darwin?

You may need to verify your business address with Google.

If you add your business address location to your Google My Business listing you may need to verify with Google that this is actually your legitimate business location. To do this, Google will send you a 'post card' and your listing will remain on hold until you receive your post card and enter the 7 digit code that is sent to that business address.

But how long does it take?

Google's message suggests it normally takes 6 days, but we know in Darwin things always take longer to get here...

Google's support area recommends you wait at least 14 days before requesting a new post card but I decided to keep waiting as I didn't want to upset the system by generating a new code. I requested mine on 22 May and it didn't arrive until 13 June, so just over 3 weeks! So if you are in Darwin and waiting for your post card, don't despair or complain too early... give it time, perhaps even 4 weeks to be safe - and then you could lodge a support query with them.

Things take longer in Darwin ... 6 days? More like 3 weeks !
