Mobile Phones Registration at Airports by Overseas Pakistanis

As per the Mobile Tax Policy devised by the incumbent government for Overseas Pakistanis returning to their native Country, entrants have to go through the mobile registration process at the airports.


Currently, Overseas Pakistanis are allowed to have one mobile phone each as they arrive in the Country. However, if they have more than one each, they would have to pay additional tax.

Those, who are traveling along with their families, may have one extra mobile each on their children’s names but if their children already hold NICOPs and photocopies.

It is prerequisite for Pakistani entrants to line up in a queue at the airports and pay fees to register their respective mobile phones. Otherwise, sims in those mobile phones won’t become operational.Mobile Phones Registration at Airports by Overseas Pakistanis

It is, therefore, suggested to them to have their passports, Pakistani CNICs or NICOPs, travel tickets and if possible photocopies of their boarding cards in their hand bags before leaving for Pakistan from abroad.

These preventive initiatives will help Overseas Pakistanis to go through the mobile registration process without much inconvenience. But in case of not holding photocopies of their boarding cards, they may suffer discomfort and face impediments as they would likely to find long queues of people waiting to get photocopies.

In addition to that, they may have to pay 10 to 20 percent more in Pakistani Currency as charges of photocopies.
