Temporary importation can be either with total or partial relief of import duty.  Goods that are subject to total relief of import duty from customs duties are personal belongings, tools of the trade of a skilled worker, including musical instruments, artistic and sporting equipment, passengers and goods that temporarily replace goods exported for repair, and, in general, any goods that at the end of the temporary importation period would have no anticipated market in Afghanistan.  All other goods will be taxed at 3 percent of the monthly total customs duty if the goods were being imported.
