Find the approximate taxes / duties to pay for a phone that you want to Import - Mobile Phone Taxes Calculator

You can bring in one mobile phone (feature or a smartphone) to Pakistan without paying customs duty or tax. But, if you are planning to “import” a phone or bring with you a mobile device, you’d have to pay taxes for it whether a feature phone or a smartphone/tablet.

Update (24th September 2019): Taxes have been reduced quite a lot, most of the calculator entries have been updated. If your smartphone isn’t in the list or you think the tax mentioned is extremely high, please ask about that in the comment box below, we’ll send you the exact tax amount that you’ll be liable to pay.

We have been writing news about importing mobile phones into Pakistan, recently, here’s a complete guide for international travelers bringing in mobile devices to Pakistan.

Since you are here to find out the approximate mobile phone taxes that you would have to pay at the Airport or at the customs office, this table below would help.

How does the table above calculate taxes?

For every cell phone, these are the various taxes that you will be liable to pay if you are importing a phone through Ali Express or any eCommerce website online.

1. Customs Duty = PKR 250 Fixed

2. Regulatory Duty (Based on phone prices in USD)

  • If $1 to $60 = PKR 250
  • If $61 to $130 = 10% of Mobile value
  • If $130+ = 20% of the Value of the Phone

3. Sales Tax = PKR 1500

4. Additional Sales Tax = 3% Fixed

5. IT Duty = 9%

6. Mobile Levy (based on phone prices in PKR)

if cell phone value is PKR 10,000 to 40,000 = mobile levy will be PKR 1000

If PKR 40,000 to 80,000 = PKR 3000

If Over PKR 80,000 = PKR 5000

7. Provincial Tax = 0.9%

Add the above values and you will get the exact tax value that you’ll have to pay.

Want us to find the applicable tax on a smartphone that is missing in the calculator above?

Simply, comment below the name of the smartphone along with the model, we’ll let you know the tax that you’ll be liable to pay for that smartphone. We’ll also add it to the calculated taxes table above.

Hope you found out the excise duty for the mobile phone you plan to import. We know these rates are high and we think the government should take appropriate steps to minimize these taxes soon.

Make sure you share it with your friends and family!

      4. Hey fahad .may i know the pta charges for note10 . My friend will get it for me from dubai .

      2. We are expat Pakistanis living in the UAE,
        My daughter has gone to Pakistan for university studies, she has I phone 7S for last 3 years, but the tax that she has to pay is really very high according to your calculator, I’m afraid that she won’t be able to pay that, what’s the solution? Can she use that phone without SIM?
        One more query, isn’t 1 personal mobile exempt from this duty?

      3. Hello,
        Unfortunately, the “baggage facility”, 1 personal mobile phone that was previously exempted from the duty, has been discontinued. Ask your daughter to register the device within 60 days on arrival, she’ll pay around 31K not 42K. Still much, but that is what you’d have to pay in order to use the phone.

  7. I am going to China next month and I have a galaxy note 8 which I am using in Pakistan and will be using in China as well, registered with PTA. I will be buying a oneplus phone from China. Will I be charged with tax upon my return to Pakistan on oneplus phone?

      1. You can bring one phone for free? Also you mentioned you can use the phone for 60 days does that mean use it with local sim?

      2. One free phone, also called “Baggage Facility” isn’t valid anymore. You’ll have to pay taxes on each and every phone that you brought into Pakistan. Also, your phone will work for 60 days, after then no local SIM would work on it.

  8. How much total including all tax and duties, i have to pay to register imei for used Samsung Galaxy Note 5 ram4 & 32gb storage single sim.

  9. How much total amount (tax & duties etc) i have to pay for the registration of samsung galaxy note 5 used 4ram 32 gb storage.

  10. Tablet
    Model number
    Kindly find the tax fare approx. Because my table is blocked by PTA. Kindly consider.

  11. Asalamoalikum Sir.

    How much duty I have to pay on Lenovo tablets if I have got two tablets as a present on arrival at Islamabad international airport.

    I have got one Android mobile which I have used in Pakistan do I have to pay duty on arrival at isb airport traveling from Dubai

    H I have got one more mobile for personal use which I purchased from Dubai and is not I have to pay taxes on that as well

    1. Wassalam Sharafat,
      1) TABLETS:
      If both of these do not have SIM slots or connectivity options, then you do not have to worry about anything.
      If they have SIM slots / and are 3g/4g, then you need to pay taxes to register those tablets.
      No, it would already be paired with your number and no registration needed here, you are good to go.
      You are required to register this phone with PTA.

      Now the overall scenario, if your tablets do not have SIM Slots, you already have one phone that you used here at pak, only 1 remains as unregistered. You’ll have to pay nothing!! As you can bring in 1 mobile device per year that you’ll be able to register free of cost.
      Hope that helped you.
      If you need any further info, you can ask freely.

  12. Hello. I got a cellphone from my friend. I received an SMS that it is not PTA approved. I followed your process and entered an COC. The duty amount is 52 Thousand PKR. I don’t want to pay such amount for a phone which is worth just 10 thousand. I will return it back to my friend. Problem is that now that COC has been registered with my Mobile Number. Do I have to pay the duty?

  24. Dear Editor,

    Please update the tax slab for the phones after the announcement of the budget on 11 June 2019.

    Moreover, kindly keep the old version of the tax calculator to identify the reduction in the taxes for the new devices after last nights budget update.


  25. It is such a disappointment to see to much taxes on importing a single unit of mobile phone. Our Tax system is more complex than spider web. Why just dont apply a simple sales tax or excise duty?

  26. I am overseas Pakistani. I have iPhone 6 Plus. I will be coming to Pakistan for about 6 months. Do I also have to pay tax?? If yes can u guide me with procedure??

  27. Mr. Fahad Khan
    I want to bring Iphone XR 128 gb ( which in my used ) from Saudi Arabia .
    i will bring mobile with me but when will i go back after 20 days to Saudi Arabia i will leave this mobile to my family use.
    do i have to pay tax for that , if there is tax then how much will that ?

    1. Hello Azam Khan
      iPhone XR is an expensive phone, its better if you do not leave it here, else you’d need to register it with Pta within 60 days and pay a huge amount (around 50K) in order to do that. unfortunately!

    1. I’d recommend not to buy and send it from abroad, as your mobile phone’s price is over $500. You might need to pay over 50K to register it. Not even worth buying it at a discount.

  28. How much tax i have to pay for HTC desire 10.this model is missing from ur plz let me know about the tax i have to pay for this model…thank u

      1. Tax on P30 Pro on Passport will be PKR 31,500 and on ID Card PKR 40,500

  30. Asalam walekum Dear Fahad
    would like to know that tax of iphone 6S 128gb will be highly appreciated if you can tell me exact amount many thanks

    1. Wassalam
      if you brought it along with yourself from abroad and want to register it on a passport, the tax might be as low as 25k – 30K.
      But as a local Pakistani, tax would be around 38K – 40K.
      Hope that helps

    1. Hello Shoaib,
      That news is true, 10K max for 500$ above, but, that is only “SALES TAX”. Total tax that you need to pay includes:
      1) Regulatory Duty
      2) Sales Tax
      3) Withholding Tax
      4) Mobile Levy
      5) Fixed Rate (As per the price of a mobile device).

      Hope that helps

      Unfortunately, Yes! Due to the misuse of the “Baggage Facility” (Which was basically to allow 1 phone per passenger and register it free of cost through DIRBS portal).

    1. You wouldn’t be stopped at the airport or so. Your phones would work for 2 months but you’d have to register them by paying taxes. On A30 and A20, you’d be charged around 6-7K Each. Hope that helps.

  39. Hi Fawad, thanks it really helps,
    but please can you elaborate how 1 mobile thing can be tax free, how should i declare a mobile phone if i bought one from out side pakistan brought it along with me ?

    1. Hello aamir,

  40. You write in very first line of article that one can bring one mobile without paying tax, totally wrong and non updated info you have, it is clearly written in PDF guide of FBR web that even a single personal use mobile will be charged tax.

      Both smartphones are over 500 USD, you’ll have to pay around 31K on Passport (as an international traveler) and around 42K on an ID Card for each of them. Hope that helps!

  47. My relative will bring along a oneplus 7 for me but they will not use Pakistani sim on their personal phone. Do they need to pay tax for the registration of oneplus 7?

    1. Since the OnePlus 7 will be used by you here in Pakistan, you’ll have to pay taxes to register it with PTA.

  48. @fahadkhan The tax reduction proposed last is applied or not if not then when will it be in reduced any idea ?

    1. Hello Abdul Muaeed,

  52. Hi Fahad,

    I trust you are well. As per the tax calculator, the tax to be paid for a Galaxy Note 9 is PKR 42,216. I was under the impression that the government had revised and reduced the tax rates in the recent past. Please confirm.

    1. Hello,
      Yes, Government has already reduced the rates and all the phones that are brought into Pakistan and registered via a passport (of the international travel) will pay the reduced tax amount.
      Galaxy Note 9 Tax via Passport will be around 31K and via an ID Card around 42K.

  56. I have an old Galaxy S6 (simple). I want to know the tax as the mobile phone is just blocked. Useful and accurate information will be appreciated. Thanx

  57. My uncle is bringing an iPhone X with him, the phone is used and about 2 years old. Will he still have to pay 48K rupees as tax calculated by your calculator. It seems to be a bit too much as the actual value of the phone is down these days.

    1. Ask your Uncle to register it upon arrival on passport (within 60 days, no rush), you’ll have to around 31k.

      1. Hi Fahad,

        Govt has reduced tax on cell phones. My friend is bringing iPhone XR from USA and its cost is $600. We have already paid 8% tax in USA. Do I still have to pay tax in Pakistan and how much?

      1. I want to know that if we import a i phone x to Pakistan then we will have to pay tax at airport or we will have the time of 60 days? …….. And this tax is only custom duty or will approve the phone?

      2. Hello Ahmad,
        Good question. Yes, you’d have 60 days to register your phone. And yes, this tax is actually “The Custom Duty” that you’ll have to pay and after the tax you wouldn’t have to pay anything to get it approved by PTA.

  58. How much for google pixel 3a from amazon, seller is selling it for 312.2 $ how much money would i have to pay for this product?

    1. Nope brother, you can bring it without paying duties. To be on the safe side, try to open the box and not bring it sealed. Or better if you wear it while coming back.

      1. Fahad Khan, I may come to Pakistan for medical treatment just for 10 or 15 days will my iPhone X will work till I stay in Pakistan?
        Thanks bro.

      2. Dear
        Ma saudia ma rhta hoo pakistan a rha ho 2 months ka leya kya muhjy bi mob ko register krna ho ga

  59. But that phone is used and has resale value of 350 $ in usa. How come the tax is 31K instead of 7K? PTA taxes the used phone the same as a new one. That iPhone X is used and 2 years old.

  60. Hello
    How much duty I’ve to pay for xs Gold 64gb . If I get from Canada open box not brand new but it’s like new

  61. How come iPhone 11 Pro Max 256gb tax is less Rs.40,000 – 45,000 as compared to the old model iPhone XS Max 256gb Rs.64,325/-?

    1. Both will have the same amount of tax payable i.e 32K on Passport and around 42K on ID Card.
      P.S. That page needs to be updated, it has taxes mentioned that aren’t updated, we are working on that. Thanks

  62. Brother what is difference between mobile registration on ID card and registration on Passport.
    Please advise.

    1. Hello,
      Registration on Passport is when you register your mobile device as international travel bringing it that device along into Pakistan (Taxes on that will be slightly lower).
      And on ID Card, is when you are a local pakistani and import a phone from abroad or buy a used phone which isn’t registered. You’d apply via your ID Card not on your Passport. I hope that cleared your question.

  63. hey, my friend will be bringing Mi 9T pro from dubai which costs AED 1150 how much tax would I be liable to pay on it. thanks

    1. Hey,
      That great. But, you’d have to pay around 8k -12K. I’ll try to find out the exact tax from PTA as well.

  64. How is the value of phone determined? Considering mobile phones are available at different prices world wide, which price will the duty be applied on? Is it the invoice price or customs dept will have their own price list? If its later, then what is this price list based on? Please advise.

    Secondly, is there any distinction between duties applied on new and used phones? Used phones will definitely be cheaper as they are purchased from secondary market.

    1. FBR has made a structure on imports of all mobile handsets. The categories them in 6 categories.
      1. Up to 30$
      2. Above 30 and Up to 100$
      3. Above 100 and Up to 200$
      4. Above 200 and Up to 350$
      5. Above 350 and Up to 500$
      6. Above 500$

      The categorization is based on the prices on “WhatMobile” whether old or new.

  65. Xiami 9t Pro from Ali Express or Amazon or any other online service?

    What if we import it from India? Possible?

  66. Hello Fahad bhai, my sister is getting me an iPhone X which is “used” . How much tax she has to pay? And can she pay it on the airport in custom office? The phone’s market value is 350 us dollars these days.

        If you are registering your phone via a passport (Within 30 days of arrival to Pakistan) then tax will be PKR 31,520.
        On ID Card, local pakistani PKR 40400.

    1. Hello Zakaullah,
      Thanks for Commenting!
      FBR considers the actual price of the phone (NEW) while deriving the tax amount.

  84. Hi Fahad Khan,

    I am bringing a mobile samsung S9+ from new Zealand in which i have NZ sim. Its second handl mobile phone therefore no box etc. do i need to pay text on bringing second hand phone? if yes, then how much? The price i paid here around PKR 50,000.
    Please help

    1. Hello Bilal,
      Actually FBR determines the Tax on the actual value of the smartphone. New!
      It’ll lie under the 500$ + Category and you’ll have to pay over 32K on Passport and around 42K on ID Card while registering it.


  85. if I have one mobile is PKR 20,000/- cost then how much i charged for this mobile.
    If I have another is PKR 30,000/- PKR 40,000/- & PKR 50,000/- individually then how much i charged for this different prices of mobiles.
    Please reply if your available for the reply

    1. 20K Phone – Around 4500 on Passport, Around 6000 on ID card
      30K Phone – Around 4500 on Passport, Around 6000 on ID card
      40K Phone – 50K – Around 6K on Passport and 8K on ID Card

  86. How will they determine the value of mobile phone?? For example oneplus 7t pro. If I show receipt showing 1000 AED for phone price whereas it’s actual price is 2500 AED.
    How will they determine the true price of phone??

    And please update taxes for oneplus 7 series. It’s been 6 months.

    1. FBR determines the tax value by using the actual prices of the phone. If your case, It’ll be 2500 AED. And while registering there isn’t any option granted to anyone to show purchase receipt or anything. If the phone isn’t used here and brought into Pakistan, registering and paying taxes for it is necessary.
      Tax on OnePlus 7 series, around 32K of passport and around 42K on ID Card.

  87. How much tax on iphone 11 128 GB, on passport?
    Please also tell first phone is free or not on passport? and what if i only use eSim?

    Also, If i bring new phone to Pakistan, Do I have to pay tax at the airport? or any custom duty at the airport?

    1. Hello,
      You need to pay taxes on all smartphones that you bring along whether personal (in use) or pin packed. If you used those personal phones here in Pakistan Before 31st December 2018, it’ll be registered. If not, then, unfortunately, you’d have to pay taxes.
      And no, you have got 60 days to register them, you don’t have to register it at the airport. Within those 60 days, you can log on the to register it.

    1. Hello Amaan,
      You can use the phone for 60 days after arrival. After that, it’ll be blocked and you’d have to register it in order to use it. Registration fee of iPhone 11 Around 32K on Passport and Around 42K on ID Card.

  93. Aoa . A relative of mine is sending an iphone 7 via courier from Uk. The phone has been to pakistan before but i am not sure whether its registered with PTA or not. Do i need to pay any tax while it is sent to Pakistan ? and if any then how much? Waiting for your reply . Thanks

    1. Wassalam,
      If the phone has previously been used in Pakistan, there is a chance that it’ll be registered. As all the phones that were used before 31st December 2018 are automatically registered. If it isn’t, you’d have to pay Around 32K on Passport and Around 42K on ID Card to register it.

  94. Dear Fahad,
    Can you please share all taxes for Galaxy S10 which is not available on your calclator?

  95. Dear Fahad

  97. Dear Fahad, if I purchase a mobile from Pakistan then do I need to register it with PTA with extra taxes or all taxes include in mobile price.

    1. Hello Irfan,
      No, If you buy PTA Approved Smartphone Pakistan, you don’t have to worry about anything.

    1. Get the Oneplus from the official distributor i.e RockVille / Rockmobile.
      And if you get the non approved one, you’d have to pay PKR 40,500 to register it on ID Card

  99. Hi Fahad,

    Zulqarnain Malik

    1. Hello Zulqarnain,

      Please go to the customs office and pick up your phone, as you’d have to pay tax in order to use it in Pakistan. There’s nothing that the you are liable to give at the customs office. The tax to Approve your phone is actually the CUSTOMS TAX that goes to FBR.

    1. Hello Shahzaib,

      Unfortunately, baggage rule khtam hogya he July 2019 se. You’d have to pay tax on that phone.
      But, what you can do is reduce that tax by registering it on your mamoo’s name and passport. 40,500 se 31,500 hojy ga.

  102. Assalam o Alikum,

    1. Hello Abbas

      Tax would be 31520 PKR on Passport and 40392 on ID Card.

      If you or any of your relatives came into Pakistan, bringing along the Note 10 Plus, they can register it within 30 days of arrival as a traveler for you by paying less.
      As a local pakistani, you’d have to pay the maximum tax i.e 40392 PKR.

  105. Hi Fahad,

    Can you please help calculate the Tax on OnePlus 7t($599), OnePlus7 Pro($699) and OnePlus 7t Pro($735(in UAE)-$762(in INDIA))?


    1. Hello Ihsan,
      All of the smartphones that you listed are over $500 and you’d have to pay PKR 31520 on Passport and PKR 40392 on ID Card.

      1. Hi Fahad,

        Thanks for your response. So, the tax is same for each device over $500?

        Does registering two smartphones one single passport matters? or we can register as many?

  106. Hi Fahad,

    I bought Iphone 8plus in feb 2019 from Sharjah, when i tried to register my phone from PTA, i got a message that my CNIC number is registered with some invalid account, i have never registered my cnic using pta application. i sent alot of emails to PTA for this scam but they never respond, i brought my phone to Pakistan in baggage policy before july 2019 now PTA application is asking me to pay tax although tax is not applicable, i have all the prove of travel and phone receipts aswell.

    could you please help me in this regard.

    Thank you.

    1. Hello,
      It seems your data has been used to register any other phone. You had to register it back then, actually, they’d say now that you came back in Feb and you are discussing this issue now.
      What you can do now, is go to the PTA Office and highlight the issue to their representative over there as I’ve heard cases like yours got fixed. Good luck and update me as well


  107. Sir i asked for how do get the cost of any phone? how does PTA or custom gets the cost to calculate to taxes?

  108. My mother will be soon travelling to Pakistan and I want to gift my dad a SAmsung A30s. Also, she will be carrying her own phone which she was using in Pakistan (PTA approved) before visiting UAE. Would like to know if one phone exemption applies to additional new phone (and not considering the one phone she is currently using) or it will be considered a case where she is carrying two phones? Im confused on this part.

    IF tax will be applicable on the new SAmsung A30S then advise how much it will be.

    1. Hello Aamna,

      Yes, your mother would have to pay tax on the new Samsung Galaxy A30S in order to use it in Pakistan (Although phone would work with any SIM for 60 Days).
      Make sure you register it on your mother’s name as an international traveler via within 30 days in order to get slight discount on the total tax.

      A30s tax on Passport = PKR 6180
      A30s Tax on ID Card = PKR 7865

  109. I bought oppo k1 at a price of 20000 from china, I went to tax office , they asked me to pay 21000 tax, what should I do now?

  110. I bought a mobile phone oppo k1 with price 20000, when I visited tax office they told me to pay 22000 tax, what should I do now?

  114. Hello Fahad,
    Are overseas Pakistanis still allowed to bring duty free one mobile phone per year ? Please confirm because I heard that no more duty free, every passenger has to pay it.
    Thanking you in advance for your help..

    1. Hello Mian Zaman,

      No, unfortunately, the baggage rule (one free device registration) isn’t applicable anymore. Each phone that you bring along with yourself or import, you’d have to pay taxes for that.

  115. Hi, Can you please confirm the charges, s9 plus dual sim, one is registered working, second sim is not registered what will be the charges for second sim registration.

      Afterwards, pay the tax amount in any bank.
      Voila, your phone will be registered within 24 hours.

    1. Wassalam Uzair,

      if it lies in the 350-500 USD price category, then that tax would be 17.6K on Passport and 22.7K on ID Card.

    What will be the tax amount for me? Can I be exempted from tax if I have USA passport?

    1. Your phone is locked in USA now that you have returned? or you left your phone and is locked over here in Pakistan.
      Tax would be around 6k on Passport and around 8k on ID Card.
      Also, there isn’t any exemption for any passport holder.

  129. My phone model is OnePlus 7. Kindly provide me the details regarding the tax structure for this phone. Also I wanted to make sure that is one phone still allowed which is exempted from tax?

    1. No, unfortunately, you’d have to pay tax on each single phone that you bring in to Pakistan.

  131. Sir i have checked imei of my phone samsung s9 plus before buying in pta app it is registered but now after two months I received message from 8484 that I have to register my phone in 60 days I checked again it is still register but the imei no they are showing in their msg is not imei of my phone.

    1. Oh, that’s a rare case.
      did you buy it used? here in Pakistan or you brought it in from abroad.
      My best guess would be that it was a carrier locked phone and in order to unlock it, they overwrite its IMEI.
      If you bought it here from a shop keeper, get it back to him as soon as you can.

  132. i have samsung c7 pro. one sim is working and another one is blocked. can u please tell me how much tax i will have to pay?

    when I went to get it registered in PTA database. FBR charged me 4037 tax.
    They said it is fixed tax.
    is it True tax applied on my mobile, which is refurbished and cost me just 20 dollar.
    why they didn’t charge me normal tax which is 300PKR upto 30 dollar C&F value of mobile.
    any suggestion for online purchasing.

    1. Hello, did you already pay for it?
      if not, please go to your local PTA office and state your problem. I’m sure it’ll be solved.

  134. Hiii Fahad,I wanna send Note 8 to my son from Australia ..this mobile phone is used and 2 years old.please let me know what is the registration process and tax on mobile. one of my friend is visiting Pakistan soon and he will bring this phone for my son. Thanks

    1. Hello Mehboob,

      > Ask your friend to visit PTA DIRB’s Web Portal, i.e
      > Create an account, using his Passport details
      > Apply for the registration using the phone’s IMEIs
      > and pay the tax in any bank within 30 days of arrival (Although the phone would work for 60 days without registration, but it’ll be better to register it within 30 days to get discounted tax as an international traveler)

      This might help too:


  135. Fahad,
    Just wanted to inquire that I just bought a Huawei Y9s for myself from Qatar and my mom bought a Samsung Note9 for my father. While at the airport the custom officer’s didn’t asked us anything and we went through… I’m using the cellphone since 4 days haven’t received any message from PTA. DO you think I still need to pay tax on it?

    1. Hello,

      Actually the phones would work for 60 days without any issue, then it’ll be blocked and without registration, you wouldn’t get signals.
      Ultimately, you’d have to pay taxes for both of them.

      Try registering it using on your passport within 30 days of arrival, you’d have to pay discounted tax.

      Tax on Y9S on Passport = 6180 ,, On ID Card = 7865
      Tax on Note 9 on Passport = 31,520 ,, On ID Card = 40,392

  136. Fahad , Any idea how much is the revised Tax amount on Iphone Pro Max 64Gb and 256 Gb ?? Also , is the single sim and dual sim tax amount different or same ?

  137. I have an old Samsung S7 Edge>
    If I start using it again what will be the amount of taxes I will have to pay to Register with PTA?

    1. Firstly, it is used in Pakistan before December 31st 2018, then it will be registered no need to apply for registration. You can check the status via *8484#

      if it isn’t registered,
      You’ll have to pay Around 6k on Passport and around 7.5K on Passport

  140. Hi there just wondering if I still have to pay Tax on my personal Mobile phone as I am visiting pakistan for the period of 5 weeks. Thanks in advance

    1. If you plan to take the phone back along with you, then there’s no need to pay any tax. It’ll work with any local SIM for 60 days.

  141. It was in use till July-Aug 2018 when I got S9+ And switched off S7 edge, till now. So am not sure because someone told me if it was not in use in Nov-Dec 2018 it may not have been automatically registered..
    Do you know anything about that, if it’s true or not?

  142. If we are bringing old phones for using on WIFI only with no activation on any phone carrier. Do we still need to pay tax at airport?

  143. I took this mobile in 2010 and was working but then i have switched it off in 2013 and now i have on now and i received message from 8484 about it tax , can u pls tell me what to do thanks

    1. I think it should be registered.
      still, go to PTA office and state your problem. You might get an exemption from the duty.

    1. Hello,

      Tax on A30

      Actually you need to apply for registeration online by creating an account at


      By dialing *8484# from any working SIM and stating your unregistered phone’s IMEIs.

      Visit any mobile network franchise (jazz, ufone etc) and take your sim along. They’ll give you a printed paper stating the tax that you’ll have to pay.

      Once you know the tax, you’ll have to pay it in a bank (any).

      1. Bhai apse pocha tha apne post hi approve ni ki hai. P20 pro huawei 2nd sim block pta first sim pta approve kra li h second sim k approval charges kia honge

    I am traveling from China to Pakistan and i am willing to take Redmi note 9 pro for my younger brother but due to taxes i am so confused. Kindly will you please let me know liable tax on redmi note 9 pro ? Thanks.

    1. Hello Iqra

      If the phone costs between 200 – 350 USD, you’d have to pay PKR 6,180 while registering it on your passport (as an international traveler).
      If the phone costs between 350 – 500 USD, you’d have to pay PKR 17,660 while registering it on your passport (as an international traveler).

    1. You can bring in 5 phones a year max. And will have to pay taxes for all 5 of them if you plan to use them here in Pakistan.

    1. If the phones are above USD 500, you’d have to pay 31520 on Passport and 40,500 on ID Card.
      If any of these two phones cost between 350-500 USD, you’d have to pay 17660 on Passport and 22700 on ID Card.

  148. AOA Fahad, Doing gr8 job. I am travelling to Pakistan for 2 weeks with 2 phones. 1 for personal and 1 for business use. I will stay in Pakistan for 2 weeks and then go back to UK with both phones. Do I need to pay any taxes on arrival to PK?

    1. Wassalam Iftikhar,
      If you plan on taking both phones back with you and not leaving them here or to be used here, do not pay anything. You can use any local SIM for 60 days in Pakistan without paying taxes.

  149. Aslam u alaikum Fahad
    I want to import Xiaomi Mi A3 priced at around 165 USD. I need to know how much will i have to pay for custom clearance and imei registration?


    1. Wassalam Usama,
      If the smartphone is below 200USD, you’ll have to pay 4510 on Passport and 6000 on ID Card.

  150. How much will the tax be for oneplus 7 pro? Also, is there a relaxation for someone who is travelling to Pakistan? Do they still need to pay taxes?

    1. There was relaxation, called baggage rule. But, that isn’t valid anymore due to that being misused excessively.
      Now you need to pay tax on every single phone that you bring in to Pakistan.

      On OnePlus 7 Pro, register it on your passport ! you’ll have to pay PKR 31500

  151. If I have a dual SIM phone and one SIM is registered, do I need to pay for registration of second SIM? I am being charged 35,000/- on second SIM.
