New PTA taxes for iPhone 7, 7 Plus, iPhone 8 and 8 Plus (November 2022)

The national telecommunications regulator Pakistan Telecommunication Authority recently increased the import tax on smartphones. This can be attributed to the falling Rupee and low State Bank reserves. To stabilize the economy, the government currently wishes to restrict imports. This is a step in the right direction for retailers importing phones in bulk, but we don’t think it’s acceptable for a normal user importing phones for personal use. So, in this regard, we will inform users about the new PTA taxes for iPhone 7/ iPhone 7 Plus and iPhone 8/ iPhone 8 plus.

New PTA taxes for Apple iPhone 7/ iPhone 7 plus and iPhone 8/ iPhone 8 Plus

Devices PTA tax on passport PTA tax on the CNIC
iPhone 7 95324 98088
iPhone 7Plus 95324 98088
iPhone 8 98977 110311
iPhone 8Plus 98977 110311

It is obvious that importing an iPhone 7 series or 8 series will cost you a hefty PKR 90k – 110k in taxes. The tax increases the total price of the phone, which is beyond the purchasing power of many consumers. We urge our national telecommunications regulator, PTA, to exclude or reduce duties on imports of smartphones for personal use.
