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. Regulatory Duty (Based on phone prices in USD)

  • If $1 to $30 = PKR 180
  • If $30 to $100 = PKR 1800
  • If $100 to $200 = PKR 2700
  • If $200 to $350 = PKR 3600
  • If $350 to $500 = PKR 10500
  • If $500+ = PKR 18500

2. Sales Tax (Based on phone prices in USD)

  • If $1 to $30 = PKR 150
  • If $30 to $100 = PKR 1470
  • If $100 to $200 = PKR 1870
  • If $200 to $350 = PKR 1930
  • If $350 to $500 = PKR 6000
  • If $500+ = PKR 10300

3. WHT – Withholding Tax

  • If $1 to $30 = PKR 70
  • If $30 to $100 = PKR xx
  • If $100 to $200 = PKR 930
  • If $200 to $350 = PKR 970
  • If $350 to $500 = PKR 3000
  • If $500+ = PKR 5200

4. IT Duty = 9%

5. 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

6. 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.

  • I have mobile Samsung Note 4. I want to know how much total taxes i have to pay to use pakiatani Sim?

    • If FBR puts it under 350-500 usd category, then tax would be around 17500 on Passport and around 22,700 on ID Card. Or, if they think its over 500, then 31,500 / 40500

  • Please confirm the tax of iphone 12 pro max.. 1759$ price in canada and pakistan 2 lakh 20k.. please reply

  • Can you please work out tax of Galaxy Note 20 ultra 5G and iPhone 12 Pro max
    They are on international roaming, I am not using Pakistani sim do I still need to pay tax?

    • No, I do not think you need to pay tax if you are using it on international roaming. Also, if you plan on going back in 60 days, you can use any local SIM as well no problem. It’ll work for 60 days.

    • around 8K i suppose if tax is calculated on 200-350 price bracket of the phone, if not, it’ll be 17k on passport and 22k on ID card,

  • Dear Fahad: I intend to bring Moto G Stylus. The total phone value is CAD349 (Canadian Dollars) approx. How much tax based on US$ conversion rate? Also I have Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus, two years old, Do I need to pay the full duty (PKR31,520) on this one too or FBR will consider depreciation value?

    • Hello Tariq,
      I think tax on Moto G Plus shouldn’t be more than 7K
      Tax on s10 plus should be 17K-22K, but if they still categorize it over 500 USD smartphone, then tax would be 31-40K. Hope that helps.

  • im in Dubai right i have a Xiaomi Poco X3 pro. can you tell me how much tax i need to pay if i come back to Pakistan

  • I have some old nokia fones which have stopped working now due to policy update, as per PTA there is unreasonable amount of tax on them, for example for nokia 8800 they ask to pay pkr 20k.
    Is there any workaround?

    • No, I don’t think you should be paying 20K for those old phones, go to PTA or call them and state your problem.

    • If FBR categorizes the iPhone 8 under 350 USD then the duty will be
      Tax on Passport: PKR 6180/-
      Tax on CNIC: PKR 7865/-

  • Hi. I am visiting Pakistan. My wife has a Pixel XL. It is 2 yrs old and is cosmetically damaged. I have a Samsung A50 also about 2 years old. Can yo please tell me the taxes and how to pay?

    • Hello,
      Do you plan to stay longer than 60 days? if yes, then register it. If no, you’ll be free to use any sim for 2 months without any issues.

      If you plan to stay longer, or leave your phone behind or you just wanna register it anyway, then you’ll have to pay
      for A50 and the Pixel 2 XL should approximately be
      Tax on Passport: PKR 6180/-
      Tax on CNIC: PKR 7865/-

  • can you tell me about huawei mate 20 pro… whatmobile still shows 119000.. but on aliexpress its value around 491$ to 530$..

    • If fba put the mate 20 pro at under 500 USD, then the tax would be 17K on Passport and 22K on ID Card. And, if they put it over 500usd, then tax would be 31.5K on Passport and 40.5K on ID card. hope that helps.

    • Since the price of the phone according to FBR right now isn’t clear. So, if they place your iPhone 7 Plus in under $200-350 Usd, you’ll have to pay around pkr 8000 on ID Card or around 6800 on Passport. And, if they place your phone in $350-500, then the tax would be Pkr 22000 on id card and around 17000 on Passport. And yes, you’ll be allowed to use the phone for 60 days without registration or paying tax.
      Hope that helps

    • Yes, if FBR lists it at “under 350” then tax would be 8K, but if they list it at $350, then 22k

    • Since iPhone SE two lies under $350-$500 price category, the approximate tax on it would be

      Hope that helps

        PKR

    • iPhone X 256 GB (FBR has lowered the taxes I guess)
      Tax on Passport around either 6200 or 17000
      Tax on ID Card either 7800 or 22000

      Oppo A5s
      Tax on Passport 4500
      tax on id card around 5900

    • Mate 20 Pro on Passport – 6200 on ID card = 7800
      P30 Pro on Passport = 17000 on ID Card = 22000

    • If it lies under 500 USD, tax will be around 20K
      if it lies over 500 usd, tax will be 30 – 40k

    • if it is cellular, then yes and that if you want to use SIM in it, if not, then no need to register.

    • Shouldn’t be more than 6k on ID Card
      Can be less as FBR has reduced taxes on old phones whose market value is less now

So will I have to pay tax on arrival of KHI airport even thought that phone will not be used there? Additionally I will have my personal phone on roaming, will I have to pay tax on it too?

    • If you do not want to use both these phones in Pakistan for over 60 days, then do not pay taxes! You’ll be able to use them for 60 days with any network without any duties to pay.

      • Ap k article k mutabiq jab mainay calculate kia to Rs. 4000+ ban rha tha. Kia ap bata sakty hai k apny kaisay calculate kia? Jaldi batadain sale khatam hojaye gi..

      • That is true, Actually, abhi recently 100USD se less phones pe taxes Kam han. Ap IMEI len phone ka aur model, phir me apko exact bata sakta hun.
        Sab depend kerta he on FBR and kya value wo dete han iss phone ko. Agar yeh 100-200 me lie kry tou apko 4510 passport pe aur 6K id card pe dene paryn ge.

      • Agar FBR bhi apke phone ko less than 100 USD value deta he, then apke phone pe tax less than 1000 hoga approximately (Based on the tax reduction FBR did recently)

      • Agr phone $90 ka hai to fbr $100 above value ku daiga? Kia ye jan bhuj kr aesa karain ga? Phone ki actual value $130 but sale pr $90 ka mil rha hai.

Kindly guide me with the amount of taxes to pay plus the process. Someone told me that taxes are around 6k which are greater than actual value o phone right now(around 4.5k).

    • No, Blackberry Q10 is cheap, and the value is less than $100. So the tax wouldn’t be 6K. It’ll be around 1K. Can’t tell exactly how much as Govt reduced the taxes on phones below $100. Try using the DIRBS web portal to register or dial *8484#.

    Also need your expert advice, whether i should register this phone on passport of my aunty (taking benefit of paying lower tax) who brought the phone and she is US citizen and she will stay in Pakistan for a month or so. If the phone is registered on her passport and can i use it on my sim which is registered with my name. Would it be any problem in future?

    Thanks

    • 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

  • 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 ?

  • 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?

    • 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

  • 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

  • I purchased Nokia 6120c Refurbished online from Ali express.
    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.

    • 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.

  • 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?

  • 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.

    • 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.

    • A70 = 6180 on Passport, 7865 on ID Card
      A80 = Either 17660 on Passport and 22800 on ID Card ,, OR ,, 31.5K on Passport and 40.5K on ID Card.

      • can you please explain the difference of amount for A80 and which one i have to pay for the phone i bought from saudia arab.

  • I came to PK for a few days in June and used iPhone SE. Now I have returned and my mobile is blocked.
    What will be the tax amount for me? Can I be exempted from tax if I have USA passport?

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.

    • 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 https://dirbs.pta.gov.pk/drs/auth/login 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

    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.

    • 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

      Thanks

      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.

  • Hello Fahad!

    Thanks for answering the querries:
    I have a plan to bring two phones, one samasung S10 brand new & second used Samsung S9. Need to know the following:

    1. Tax is calculated per slot/SIM or phone?
    2. What is the approximate tax for each phone if registered on passport?
    3. How does the cost of cell phone work and used? Do I need to bring purchase receipts for each phone or will tax be calculated against current market value in Pakistan of each phone?

    Thanks again and best regards,
    Imran

    • Hello Imran,
      Thanks for commenting

      1. Tax is calculated per Phone’s IMEI (DIRBS system does it at their back end)
      2. for both the models mentioned above, you’ll have to pay 31,500 to register them.
      3. No, just dial *8484# from a local SIM, follow the instructions, you’ll receive logins, use them to enter the web portal and track your application or register a new device.

      I hope that helped you out.

  • Hello Fahad,
    I came KSA to perform Ummrah. I buy iPhone X 64GB in used condition here. What amount of duty should I’ve to pay at Islamabad airport? Is it entered through my passport or my ID? Is there any amount difference?

    • Umrah Mubarak!
      No, You wouldn’t have to pay at the airport. You’ll have to register it via the DIRBS Web Portal or by dialing *8484#.
      And yes there’s a difference in Tax amount if you register it via Passport or via ID Card.

      Tax on ID CARD = 40,500
      Tax on Passport = 31,500
