  • Hello Fahad,

    I am asking my cousin to bring a used mobile to Pakistan from US. Since mobile is used and launched in 2019 / 2020, price would not be more than 200 USD.
    Could you please help me to know what amount of tax will be applied on used mobile worth is 200USD?
    Secondly, might be the original price of of mobile 2019 / 2020 (when launched) were 1000+ USD so will I have to present a slip of 200 USD?

    • Hello Abdul
      You do not need to show any slip or anything. Could you please share the model of the phone and the maker? We’ll see if we can find out the tax on that particular phone for you.

    • Please use the apple drop-down list above in the content and find iPhone 6 Plus, or google iPhone 6 Plus Tax, you’ll find our specific page.

  • Hi Fahad,

    Please would you work out tax calculation for Samsung GalaxyA12?

    As I am abroad, and send the phone for my brother, can I do the registration under my Passport & CNIC number?

    • A12’s price is under USD i guess and I hope FBR values it less than 200. Based on the increase in overall taxes, you’ll have to pay
      Around 8500 on Passport and around 11500 on ID Card. Previously there were a maximum of 6000 on ID Card for phones valued under 200 usd.
