Re: New Phone Jomrok / Customs duty in Lebanon

update regarding ny ipad:
it seems that libanpost have a platform to enter imeis.
my ipad accepts An Esim and physical sim but can only use one at a time unlike iphones, however it's still classed as dualsim and hence the libanpost platform requires two imeis while in reality there only is one.
My next step is to reach out to MoT.
Why are things always so complicated in this shithole?

Phone stopped working and Libanpost branches mostly closed for the weekend.

Re: New Phone Jomrok / Customs duty in Lebanon

Anyone bought a replica watch online (mainly Chinese website), and delivered by dhl?
I wonder if customs in Beirut will do if they scan the package and see it's a well known luxurious watch but the item price is 200$ on the package?
Will they follow the printed price on the invoice or their own price given by their scan + wakil's price?
Would they confiscate it if they feel it's a replica?

If they will peek inside they will definitely recognize known brand. They often dont check small packages, but thats you and your luck. But especially DHL - often check what is inside and AFAIK they have policy against counterfeit items.
If customs will check authenticity - they will confiscate package (such thing happened on my eyes as with postal packages(not mine), and even with guy who brought bag with luxury items over airport.
If customs will think it is authentic - they will google for cost and charge full cost tax.

Re: New Phone Jomrok / Customs duty in Lebanon

Hi everyone,
Is the jomrok to be paid still calculated on 1,500 rate or has it been changed? Want to get my parents new smartphones and it's a bit cheaper in the UAE than Lebanon, wanna know if it will be worth it to get it from here. Thanks

Re: New Phone Jomrok / Customs duty in Lebanon

Hi guys. Couple of questions,

(1) Has anyone recently gotten a phone through a person coming to Lebanon? Is it smooth sailing or do people get stopped for having a phone box in their bag?

(2) If anyone has gotten or imported a Google Pixel recently, did you have to pay the phone jomrok fee or are Pixels still not in the database?

Thanks

Hi Roy. I recently brought two new in-box phones in my carry on and no one said a thing, but to be fair I wasn't security checked at the airport. No idea about the Pixel situation - but in any case the jomrok is still priced at 1500LBP/$. I paid a total of 550,000LBP for 2 brand new iPhones.

I got a Pixel 6 Pro from France, and I didn't have to pay the phone jomrok fee, even though I did get the messages from MOT.
