  1. PTA asked PKR 92980/- for S22+ in September 17,2022 on Passport. If it is correct then what have you posted is incorrect amount. I’m not gonna register it and will take it back.

  2. The customs duty mentioned in USD and PKR are inaccurate. You see something different when you visit PTA website, eg samsung S10+ duty is showing more than 100k pkr
