International moving is where you ship your goods from one country to another. Individuals or businesses may need to relocate and while it may be possible to do this independently, it may prove to be overwhelming.

Such companies will assist you to ship your car, as well as any other valuables, to Pakistan.

Household goods and import duties

Pakistan is kind enough to extend duty exemption on your used household belongings, though there are a few caveats. These should be classified under a transfer of residence into the country, and youโ€™re only permitted to bring in what customs considers to be a reasonable amount of items. Keep in mind that the duty exemption doesnโ€™t cover any electronics, even used ones (1).

Also, you have just six months after moving to import your belongings without paying duty on them. Filling out a CBR booklet is also necessary to have duty waived. Finally, the International Association of Movers recommends that you leave out any paperwork that lists the monetary value of your belongings, when submitting documentation to customs. Otherwise, they warn that these figures may be used by customs, to justify charging you high duties during clearance (2).

Household goods and import paperwork

You must give customs a Transfer of Residence Certificate, as well as a Certificate of Employment. A full inventory and your Original Bill of Lading or Air Waybill are also needed. A separate packing list that has purchase receipts for any new goods (or possibly goods less than a certain age) is required. Customs will also request your passport and visa (3).

A Work Permit may be mandatory too, along with a letter from the company youโ€™ll be working for within Pakistan. This must confirm how long your work contract runs. Finally, customs Form A should be filled out and submitted with the rest of your paperwork (4).

Your vehicle and import duties

You may be disappointed to hear, that foreigners arenโ€™t allowed to bring vehicles into Pakistan. Only those with diplomatic status and Pakistani citizens enjoy vehicle importation rights. If you do somehow manage to bring your vehicle with you while moving (perhaps by having a citizen import it for you, if this is legally permitted) - the import fees will be significant. The current import duties and taxes range from 100% to 350%. The exact rate youโ€™ll pay is dependant on the value (including freight costs) and the engine displacement (5).

Your vehicle and import paperwork

If you end up importing a vehicle, then your passport and the Original Bill of Lading or Air Waybill are required. A purchase receipt that lists the vehicle model, horsepower rating and the engine number is also necessary. A De-Registration Certificate and the vehicleโ€™s title should be provided as well. If you donโ€™t have the title, then a technical passport will likely be an acceptable substitute (6).

Be prepared to provide documents showing insurance coverage and a Certificate of Origin (7). The vehicle registration, a valid Import Permit and customs Form A round out the list of required documentation (8).

A significant number of additional regulations may apply to your shipments, as well as other fees or paperwork requirements. For this reason, itโ€™s sensible to give customs a call before relocating. Theyโ€™ll be able to supply the most up-to-date and comprehensive information, regarding the clearance process.

Tips on how to make your international move easier

Moving overseas is often perceived to be such a hassle but it can be stress-free, especially when you choose a moving company that does its job well. Preparation is important for your big move to be successful. Research on all that is required to ship or migrate to Pakistan and also make good use of the resources available online such as on the US Department of Transportation (USDOT) site.

So as to have a great experience and easy time relocating, you need to prepare your goods in a manner that will allow for easy packing and unpacking. You also need to prepare your documents so as to enable easy processing. Liaise with the moving company and let them know the necessary details. Communicate your expectations and provide the necessary documents so as to enable them deliver the service in a timely manner. Paying the moving company as soon as possible also ensures that you will have a swift move.
