I like "arrive" better....
"Come = vir"
- The postman is coming = O carteiro está vindo (he is on his way here)
- The postman is arriving = O carteiro está chegando (he's almost here)
We use "come = chegar" for things like events (they don't have a destination to use "arrive" in English).
- Winter is coming = O inverno está chegando
- His time will come = A sua hora vai chegar
