Islamabad: The Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) has introduced a new process for the registration of unregistered mobile phones by paying duties and taxes online.
The new policy implemented says that overseas Pakistanis can bring only one cell phone without paying taxes and custom duties.
The phone will be registered in the Device Identification, Registration and Blocking System’s (DIRBS) white list without duties and custom payments. On the other hand, mobile phone sellers will be made to pay taxes and duties.
Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) and Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) will be introduced a web-based user interface application for DIRBS registration after the taxes and payments have been made.
International travellers who are coming into Pakisatn are allowed to bring phones in their luggage after they are registered in the online application.
It should be noted that people who receive phones through postal or courier services can follow the following the guidelines laid down on the PTA website to register their mobile phones.
