      PTA's DIRBS Stuff for Overseas Pakistanis

      I came back to my home country after 3 years for a short stay of 2 weeks and IMMEDIATELY i was bombarded with freakin' petty issues and needless timewasting tensions.

      My mobile number of 10+ years from Ufone was cancelled and re-sold because i didn't turn it on for 6 months (yes i know it's my mistake but they should AT LEAST send an email or some sort of notification that it will be disabled if we don't use it. WTF).

      Anyway, bought a new SIM from Zong and once again, my device is "Non Compliant" from PTA. Since this is the only device i brought back with me, i thought it would be free, and thought it would get registered automatically after making a phone call.

      Am i wrong to think that?

      Your suggestions will be most appreciated. 😎

      DIRBS truly is a pain in the ass.

      Anyway, one device to bring along is completely free of cost, but if you didn't get it done at the airport, you'll have to visit the Customs House with your passport and CNIC to go and get your phone approved.

      Make sure you submit both IMEIs if it's a dual SIM phone.

      Unfortunately yes. The online registration portal is only for dealers / shopkeepers AFAIK.

      Although, the phone should work just fine without approval for up to 30 days since that's how DIRBS is supposed to work. Visitors aren't supposed to be inconvenienced by this, only people who live here.

      The fact that your SIM doesn't work in the phone is quite weird.

      No the SIM is working (Zong number) but my IMEI was being shown as "Non compliant" when checked at DIRBS.

      Well thanks for your help. It was really helpful.

      Oh then nothing to worry about. It says non compliant since you've never visited Pak with this phone before DIRBS was invented.

      Continue using as is.

      Just a heads up. My brother received a SMS today regarding Device Registration System by PTA.
      Here's the link: https://dirbs.pta.gov.pk/drs

      I'm going to make the account and try to register. Will report back soon.

      Important Message:

      As per custom baggage rule, an International traveler can avail duty/tax exemption on one mobile device in a calendar year.
      If you are International Traveller / having Dual Nationality and you travelled on Pakistani Passport please select User Type as Pakistani (Local / International Traveller / Dual Nationality Holder)
      If you are International Traveller / having Dual Nationality and you travelled on Foreign Passport or having Foreign Nationality please select User Type as Foreigner (Travelled on Visa)
      For international travelers who entered on their PAKISTANI passport / Foreigner passport. Please register your mobile device with that particular passport number within 60 days from the date of arrival

      If a device status says "Non Complaint" but the Sims (incase of dual SIM) continue to work fine, will that be a problem?
