Bring Brought

Could you please tell me which sentence is correct? “I am sorry for not bringing your package yet or I am sorry I have not brought your package yet”. Thank you in advance.

They're both OK, but the second is less informal and I prefer it.

They also imply slightly different meanings: the first suggests that bringing the package is something I ought to have done, while the second includes the implication that my bringing it might depend on factors beyond my control.

I agree with Nicholas, well put!
Really, depends on what you are trying to stress [relative to the degree of importance].

Try:
I have yet to come with your sorry package.
