PSW Registration: ONE DAY SERVICE
Register with Pakistan Single Window

PSW stands for Pakistan Single Window. PSW Registration is required for all importers and exporters. We offer ONE (1) DAY PSW Registration Service. PSW  (Pakistan Single Window)   is a web-based submission system for all regulatory documentation requirements associated with imports, exports, and logistics in Pakistan. The purpose of PSW is to improve cross-border trade processing through centralized ICT-based services, simpler processes, effective and reliable automation, a harmonized data exchange, and risk-based selection of government regulations.

PSW is Administrated By FBR’s Customs Department

Pakistan Single Window (PSW) is registered under section 42 of the Companies Act 2017 and administered by the Federal Board of Revenue Customs Department of the Government of Pakistan.

According to the Prime Minister’s Office, Pakistan has committed to launching its Single Window (NSW) by 2022, also called Pakistan Single Window (PSW). For the creation of this important reform initiative, Pakistan Customs has been designated as the ‘Lead Agency’. A Program Management Office (PMO) has been established by the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) to coordinate and supervise this initiative.

PSW – Central Point of Import, Export Regulatory Requirements

A Single Window is a facility that facilitates standardized communication and documentation between parties involved in trade and transport and serves as a central point for all import, export, and transit-related regulatory requirements. In the case of electronic information, each element should only be submitted once. The Pakistan Single Window will enable trade-related business processes to be more efficient, transparent, and consistent while reducing the time and cost of doing business in Pakistan.

PSW For G2G, B2G and B2B Transactions

Although the concept is primarily designed to integrate and strengthen trade-related government-to-government (G2G) and business-to-government (B2G) interactions, but B2B transactions have been incorporated, including those related to port operations, trucking, and warehousing. The PSW is led by customs and involves multiple public and private sector stakeholders, including regulators, traders, freight forwarders, banks, terminal operators, transporters, etc.  

Scope of PSW (Pakistan Single Window)

Pakistan single Window PSW

PSW has recently expanded its scope with the addition of online subscriptions and customs registrations for Free Tax Number (FTN) holders including federal and provincial government departments, diplomatic missions, non-governmental organizations, public hospitals, universities, and research institutes.

PSW integrates with NADRA & FBR

FTN holders no longer need to visit Customs offices to obtain WeBOC User IDs, which are now issued to them electronically through the PSW platform. Using the new system, customs registration takes an average of a few minutes instead of the usual 10 days, and it integrates with NADRA, the FBR, and other government databases to allow electronic validations and verifications.
