Required Documents For Shipping A Vehicle To Pakistan
- Passport (copy acceptable)
- Ocean bill of lading (OBL)
- Vehicle title.
- Purchase invoice.
- De-registration Certificate.
New vehicles face a 50% duty if they’re over 8,000 CC, plus additional excise taxes. The maximum value that may be assessed for taxes and duties is 90% of the car value, which makes it a costly endeavor to import a vehicle to Pakistan if you don’t qualify for special regime designation (see below). Vehicles that are brought into Pakistan from another country must be no more than 3 years old.
Special regime auto shipments to Pakistan qualify for lesser taxation, though they still must pay an import duty.
Vehicles that qualify for special regime import must also be less than 3 years old and are limited to certain circumstances: change of residency, personal possession or a *gift. The special regime designation may only be used to ship a car to Pakistan once every two years, per person. The duty on cars brought in under the special regime exception are based on the engine displacement and assessed on a sliding scale.
*To qualify as a gift under special regime rules, the vehicle must come from immediate family.

Information Regarding Each Overseas Transport Method
All and all we have four overseas transport methods we offer to our customers shipping heavy equipment and oversized cargo. Depending on the type of cargo you must deliver to Pakistan, your preference, and your budget, we will determine which services you can take advantage of. Here is a list of our transport services...
- Flat Rack Shipping
- Container Shipping
- Roll On/Roll Off Shipping a.k.a. RoRo Shipping
- Lift On/Lift Off Shipping a.k.a. LoLo Shipping
Flat rack shipping is an open air service that secures your cargo to large metal frame before boarding the ship so that it is unable to shift during the transport. LoLo shipping is usually suggested to those with inoperable vehicles, standstill construction equipment, and crated cargo. RoRo shipping is the cheapest open air service yet it requires that your vehicle or equipment drive onto and off of the water vessel. Container shipping is an enclosed service that provides the greatest amount of protection from outside elements and therefore, it is slightly higher in cost. All of these services are accompanied with free insurance coverage.
