You will get a unique PSID along with details of the duty that you are supposed to pay for that smartphone. This amount will vary according to the price of your smartphone in US Dollars.

Step 6:Last but not the least, you have to pay the dues or taxes using different payment methods including online banking, ATM, or at a branch of any of the major banks, including National Bank of Pakistan (NBP), Allied Bank, Muslim Commercial Bank (MCB), etc within seven days.
