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.
