How to get NOC from PTA? - Mobile shipped via USPS now stuck at Karachi Airport


#21

Do the same restrictions and heavy customs duty apply on phones delivered via China / Singapore air mail and DHL?

If yes, then honestly there is no point left in buying mobiles online :angry: . PTA should at least realize that it is really easy to change IMEI of even QMobile and other phones available in Pakistan. I, therefore, see no point in this NOC requirement.


#22

I agree, there is one point in buying online, this shirt rule means they can keep our mobiles hostage.

The rule applies to any and all mobiles that are imported via any shipping company.

Is the phone in its original packing? If yes, the customs will open the box and copy the IMEI number from the box, if its not in its original packing, I have no idea what to do there.

No, I emailed PTA to get the information, and then sent all the required documents via TCS to them. Everything is mentioned in the OP.

The letter has the IMEI number mentioned on it. The custom already know the IMEI number as they open the package and see the box/mobile take the IMEI number and make the custom letter. You need the custom letter to get the NOC. See the requirements I mentioned. Here is how it goes.

  1. Mobile arrives at Pakistan Post airport office.
  2. Pakistan Custom detain the parcel.
  3. Pakistan post sends you letter that your parcel has been detained by customs.
  4. You goto the airport and the custom guy opens the parcel, see's the mobile and the box, copies the IMEI number and creates the 'custom letter'
    1. custom guy then seals the parcel with your signature.
  5. You TCS all the documents to PTA (see OP) including the letter from Pakistan Post (step 3), and custom letter (step 4).
  6. Once PTA receives the documents, you get an SMS on your mobile with a number.
  7. You can then call PTA (if your lucky) and get them to FAX you the NOC, or wait for the letter to come via post.
  8. You take the letter and give to customs.
  9. Customs releases the parcel to Pakistan Post.
  10. Pakistan Post then delivers the parcel to your home the next day. When the post guy comes he will come with a letter which will tell you how much duty you have on your mobile, you pay that and get your parcel.
  11. The End.

Sample NOC I picked up online, mine was the same.

I'm having the same issue.. Bought a Nokia Lumia 920 and have found out that the airport customs cleared it on 6th August (order date was 15 July, came late due to Eid); but there is an internal Customs department made inside the GPO office which withholds cellphones nowadays (btw I imported two lesser costing phones for free earlier without any issues earlier this year on seperate occassions)

Have known that RISHWAT can do the trick but I'm trying to get it cleared for free because duties are charged on new phones not the old ones or refurbished ones, and mine is a refurbished piece.. .

Will keep you guys updated once I get the situtation finalised! Fee Amanillah :)

EDIT:-

Just received a more expensive LG Optimus G just now at my home! (order date was 7th August 14)
