Pakistan Single Window (PSW) is an online platform that enables importers, exporters and their clearing agents to submit and process customs clearance documentation, declarations, and payments electronically, in a streamlined and efficient manner. The platform aims to simplify and automate the process of customs clearance, and to reduce the time and costs associated with clearance of goods at the ports and airports of Pakistan.
The PSW is intended to improve the ease of doing business in Pakistan by providing a one-stop-shop for all customs clearance-related activities. It allows importers, exporters and their clearing agents to submit and process all required documentation, declarations and payments electronically, eliminating the need to visit customs offices in person. The system also allows for real-time tracking of shipments, which enables importers and exporters to stay informed about the status of their goods at all times.
The PSW is being developed and implemented by the Pakistan Customs department in collaboration with other government agencies such as Federal Board of Revenue (FBR), Trade Development Authority of Pakistan (TDAP), and Pakistan Standards and Quality Control Authority (PSQCA). The system aims to improve the efficiency and transparency of the customs clearance process and will be a key enabler for trade facilitation and economic growth in Pakistan.
