GOVT Refuses to Allow Vintage Car Import
November 11, 2021 / By Zunair Tahir / News Pakistan
The government has declined to offer a one-time exception for antique automobile imports. The trade ministry had presented a case to the cabinet in this respect at a meeting held last week.
The participants were notified by the Commerce Division that the Import Policy Order (IPO) 2020, Appendix-C, Clause 10 indicated that the import of second hand/used automobiles was prohibited, save for those explicitly exempted under Chapter 87.
Pakistanis are prohibited from importing secondhand automobiles, even vintage vehicles.

The SRO, however, could not be implemented due to the Import Policy Order’s prohibition on the import of historic automobiles.
