Baggage Shipping to Pakistan
Important Pakistan Customs Information
If Personal Effects are cleared formally by Pakistani customs, there will be an additional 3 day delay.
General Customs Information
Most countries offer a generous duty free allowance for personal effects and the majority of Send My Bag™ shipments worldwide will not be stopped by customs.
Personal effects are usually assessed as used items which have been in the sender's possession for 6 months or more. If your bag is checked by customs and is found to contain brand new or commercial items your shipment may be assessed for customs duties and taxes. If you are sending Christmas gifts please check with the destination country, follow their advice and attach all necessary documentation.
Customs processes and allowances do vary by country and as such we advise all travellers take 5 minutes to check how their personal circumstances and what they are sending will be assessed under the prevailing customs regulations of the destination.
More information is available in on our customs information page.
In order to demonstrate your shipment is personal effects you will be required to complete a brief non generic packing list online, entries to be made in the format: "5 x Cotton T-Shirts, 2 x Jeans, 3 x Cotton Shirt" and so on rather than as "10 x Used Clothing".

Pakistan is a large country, officially named the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, in South Asia, with a huge population of over 180 million people. Its tourism industry hit its heyday in the 1970s, but has been described recently as being up and coming once again, attracting up to around 1 million tourists per year.
The currency used is the Pakistani Rupee, and the official languages of the country are Urdu and English. The climate in Pakistan can be hugely varied depending on season, altitude and location. For example, one of the highest temperatures in the world has been recorded there, but the mountains in the north are usually covered in snow. During the summer, temperatures soar, with average temperatures of around 100F with hot winds inland, but cooler breezes on the coast. Winters are generally cold with average temperatures sitting around 39F in Punjab and below freezing further north.
Pakistan is a hugely diverse country that draws tourists to attractions of all kinds, from the ruins of ancient civilizations such as Mohenjo-daro and Taxila, to the Himalayan Mountains in the north where winter sports prevail, to even the beaches of the Arabian Sea where you can practise scuba diving.
WHY SHIP TO PAKISTAN?
If you’re planning a visit to Pakistan, whether it’s a business trip, a long vacation to see the sights and explore the wonderful countryside, or perhaps you’re relocating, there’s always the risk that your suitcase may be overweight and you’ll be forced to pay extra charges to take it on board the plane. Or you may want to take oversized or unusual items and equipment for activities such as skiing or snowboarding in the mountains or diving kit and gear for scuba diving and snorkelling.
If this sounds like an issue you might have and need to resolve, SendMyBag might be the answer you’re looking for. When you book a collection from us, we can pick up your bag, equipment or extra luggage right from your front door and deliver it to your accommodation in Pakistan, wherever that might be. It saves you from all the hassle of having to transport awkward or heavy bags all the way from home to your destination or resort, and can also save on the extra fees you might incur. It’s quick and easy to organise a shipment via SendMyBag and it will get your extra luggage there safely and reliably.
Sending your bag or outsized luggage ahead of you to Pakistan couldn’t be easier when you follow the simple instructions provided to you by SendMyBag. There are, however, certain regulations you need to follow to make sure your baggage gets there as safely as you do. You need to first book your collection online to anywhere in Pakistan; we’ll then provide you with a link to an online form where you can provide information of the items that you are sending. This is necessary for your baggage to cross international borders quickly and easily by establishing their value, and means that they are less likely to be delayed or face charges extra customs duties or fees.
You are also recommended to fill in a personal effects form in which you confirm that the items you are sending have been in your possession for a while and you do not intend to sell them. Following our simple guidelines and not attempting to send items of very high value or ones that are prohibited means that your luggage will arrive at your destination with no issues, and is far easier than carrying it with you.
