This  is  what usually happens.

Occasionally seeds  from a consignment  have been detained  while  
the  rest is  forwarded.  This  is  usually because  they  cant   
understand  / read the name on the  packet. On the  several  
occasions  this  has  happened to myself  , the seeds once  cleared  
are posted at  quarantine's  expense.
