Temporary Mobile Registration Procedure
To avail the benefits of the temporary mobile registration system, users need to follow a straightforward registration process. On arrival in Pakistan, they can visit PTA designated registration centers or use the online registration portal to register their mobile phone devices.
During the registration process, users are required to provide their personal details including their passport information and date of arrival in Pakistan. Upon completion of registration, visitors receive a confirmation message, confirming their provisional registration.

The Temporary Mobile Registration System allows visitors to register and use their mobile phone for 120 days from the date of arrival in Pakistan. This generous time frame ensures that people can enjoy uninterrupted mobile services during their stay without any additional registration.
However, it is important to note that the provisional registration is only valid for the specific visit. Visitors need to re-register their mobile phones on subsequent visits to Pakistan to continue using their devices without any duty or tax.
