All vehicles imported must be Right Hand Drive (RHD).
The new import policy announced in 2006 allows the import of three year old vehicles from the date of manufacturing used cars instead of two years old for the Overseas Pakistanis.
Procedure for importing a used car is now very simple in Pakistan.
*ON ABOVE DUTIES UP TO 1,800 CC HYBRID ENGINES 50% WAIVER IS APPLIED
*AND FROM 1,800 TO 2,500 CC HYBRID CAPACITY 25% WAIVER IS APPLIED. IT IS ONLY FOR CARS
Import duties on new cars with a capacity of up to 1,300cc are 50 percent; cars up to 1,800cc are charged 65 percent and cars of more than 1800cc pay 75 percent.The reduction in duty for used cars means effectively that a two-year-old used car with a capacity of up to 1,300cc will be charged duty of just 2 percent.
While the bulk of new cars sold in Pakistan are 1,300cc or below, the government is encouraging the import of larger luxury cars. Import duties on the largest cars, have been reduced from 100 to 75 percent.
