    Guys i need help from you , I recently sold my Nikon D750 and now I am thinking to upgrade to D810 , and the price i am getting it in is 1100$ , thing is i find some good used cameras on Ebay in reasonable price, so i ask my wife to purchase it for me, but i don't know if she can mail it to Pakistan ? does anyone know my wife can mail a Dslr camera through Fedex or DHL like service ? if yes what would be custom duty or tax ?

    Custom duty would be higher if i am not wrong but i have heard horrible stuff about our customs staff like they keep your products and will demand money to release it etc. That's the thing that scares me most i hope i am wrong and these are very rare incidents. Btw if you're in Lahore why not try Hafiz centre for this kind of stuff?

    But if you import it and add taxes and duties to baat wohi pohnch jaegi ni? Upar se damage hone ka khatra.

    Dear you may want to reconsider due to taxes and duties, also people calculating and imposing duties, taxes on imported items usually over tax them. If possible buy from Pakistan or ask a visiting family member or friend to bring your camera with them.

    The box will definitely get there in one piece.
    Not sure about the camera in it.
