Now Overseas Pakistanis can Import 1 Mobile Phone Free of Duty in a Year

A large number overseas Pakistanis living in the UAE and abroad carry more than one mobile phone when they go back home free of customs duties. This will not be the case anymore.

Hammad Azhar, Pakistan’s Minister of State for Finance, Revenue and Economic Affairs, on Saturday said overseas Pakistanis can take only one phone in a year without paying customs duty and a maximum of five can be brought in as per personal baggage rules. But they will have to pay duty on the four extra handsets.

“For people bringing in phones from abroad, as per personal baggage rules, one phone per annum is allowed duty-free and up to a maximum of five phones in a year can be brought in. The duty on remaining four will have to be paid if you require service in Pakistan beyond 30 days,” Azhar tweeted.

Pakistan’s Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry on Friday said that all those mobile phones brought into the country illegally after December 31 will be blocked by the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA).
