Checks that are mailed internationally will take a while longer to receive, after the IRS has processed your return. If you haven't received it within 45 days after they specify on Where’s My Refund website that they have mailed it, you need to contact the IRS by calling the International Taxpayer Service Call Center at 267-941-1000 (Monday-Friday, 6 am-11 pm EST).

I gather that this is valid for the stimulus check. System states that it is scheduled to be mailed on 24 April.

Any idea as to delivery time to Europe due to Covid19 delays? I checked in USPS site and Bulgaria is not on the 'can not mail to' list.
