Import or Export is the most common service that any good clearance company can offer, challenge is to Import any item on temporary basis and then re-export that item from Pakistan smoothly. This is useful for shipping artwork for exhibitions, promotional materials for trade shows or sports equipment for training or competition.

In Temporary Import any importer can bring goods into a country for a brief period of time. This is a very beneficial way of import especially for international companies who ship cargo internationally as import duties are totally of partially gets suspended.

If you plan to re-export your goods unchanged, you can make use of temporary import under TIR carnet/ATA Carnet, Standard Temporary Import (for power project ect.) or Temporary Import under Bond.

For each and every case temporary import regulation is not same because its implication gets changed in every scenario depending upon the reason of import or the type of item.
