The Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) has raised more than Rs5.8 billion in the last one year from expatriates and travellers on import of mobile phones under baggage.

Since July 1, 2019, the government has withdrawn the facility of duty-free mobile handset under the baggage rules from abroad. The decision, according to the FBR, was taken following receipt of numerous complaints of the scheme’s misuse.
