Importing Japanese Used Cars Into Pakistan

WHAT YOU CAN IMPORT

In 2006, change in Import Policy has brought some good news for overseas Pakistanis. It allows the import of three year old used cars instead of two years old. Procedures for such imports have also been simplified.

The rules concerning the import of vehicles have been changed to the following:

  • Under the gift and personal baggage schemes, vehicles up to three years old can now be importable.
  • Under the gift scheme brothers and sisters will also be eligible for a gift, besides the parents, husband, wife and children.
  • It is no longer required that the vehicle be registered in the name of the Pakistani national before its import under the personal baggage or transfer of residence scheme.
  • Overseas Pakistanis holding Pakistan origin card are also eligible to import vehicles under the gift, personal baggage and transfer of residence scheme. These cards are given to Pakistanis opting for citizenship in another country or those carrying 'green cards' like in the United States.

All Pakistanis can import new cars while only those overseas can import used cars.

Under baggage rules for overseas Pakistanis, imports of used and new cars are allowed on transfer of residence, gift to immediate relatives and for those who stayed abroad more than six months.

Ownership of a used car is unrestricted and the overseas Pakistanis can buy a used car from the market, which is less than three years old.

The car will be liable for disposal through auction if you cannot pay the duty or taxes required. You can however claim the sale proceeds after deduction of all leviable duty, taxes and other charges.
