How to Register your Mobile Phone with PTA Online?

In order to facilitate International Travellers, PTA in collaboration with FBR has launched a new web-based user interface application in DIRBS for the regularisation and registration of unregistered mobile phones. It means now, one can pay duties and taxes online rather than standing in long queue on Airport. For now, International travellers will be able to bring phones in their luggage and don’t need to declare it on Airport. The FBR has issued separate procedures for the registration of the mobile devices brought in by international travellers, registration of mobile devices by the local applicant, registration of mobile devices imported by individuals through postal service or courier and registration of mobile devices imported illegally through informal channels by local traders. PTA Online Device Registration System is specially launched to facilitate overseas Pakistanis. So now Register Mobile Phone Online.
