Here are just a few things you need to know when clearing goods through Customs:

WHAT WILL IT COST?

How much the goods are worth, and how they arrive in the port of destination, will determine how we clear them and what duty, taxes and charges may apply. However, the Government rules will apply.

GOODS WITH A VALUE OF LESS THAN THE LAID DOWN LIMIT

You do not have to pay duty and taxes on goods that falls in the category of low value imports. If these goods arrive in Pakistan by air or sea cargo, they must have a Self-Assessed Clearance (SAC) declaration. This will generally be taken care of by the cargo company or freight forwarder. There is no charge for this declaration. Goods arriving by post do not require a SAC declaration. However, the law of land and defined rules pertinent to  customs clearance, shall apply.

GOODS WITH A VALUE OF MORE THAN THE LAID DOWN LIMIT

To import goods with a value over the laid down limit, you need to make an Import Declaration. The Import Declaration provides information about the goods you are importing. There is a processing charge for making an Import Declaration. You will also be required to pay the duty and taxes for your goods. WAM & ZINGS can assist you with this process.
