The much-awaited iPhone 15 series has finally arrived, which means any Pakistani buying the device has to pay FBR Tax to use the device in Pakistan. In this article, we have provided the latest FBR Tax on iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Pro Max to get PTA Approval in Pakistan.
It is pertinent to mention that Federal Board of Revenue places Taxes on Mobile Phones in order to get Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) approval, which allows use of the smartphone in the country beyond a 60 day period, otherwise the International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI) is blocked for use on local networks.
Note: It bears mentioning that Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) does not decide on the Taxes and Duties to be paid for mobile phone imports into Pakistan as Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) decides on the matter and PTA is just responsible for maintaining DIRBS.
iPhone 15, 15 Plus, 15 Pro & 15 Pro Max FBR Tax For PTA Approval in Pakistan
|Device||Tax on Passport (PKR)||Tax on CNIC (PKR)|
|iPhone 15 PLUS||113,075||137,033|
|iPhone 15 Pro||122,275||147,153|
|iPhone 15 Pro Max||131,130||156,893|
These are the latest mobile FBR Tax on iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Pro Max for PTA Approval in Pakistan with Pro and Pro Max models having the highest taxes due to their high cost.
However, any overseas Pakistani visiting the country for less than 120 days can now just use PTA’s Temporary Registration System (TRS) and use their mobile during their short stay. Although, if they plan on staying longer, they have to pay the FBR Tax in order to continue using their device.
