SALAM.
It all depends how you bring it in the country. If somebody bring it with him on the plane it is not a problem. You might have to pay $16.00 in customs. I am not sure what it would cost to import a airgun through post.
I go to PAKISTAN every year and the last time I went in may this year I had 4 airguns and it cost £40.00 in customs.

SHIEKH TARIQ UK: Can you please let me know if you have to declare while checking in at the airport in UK that there is an airgun in your luggage? or you go through without informing? are there any legal formalities? what about PCP rifles do they treat them any differently as compared to a spring gun, (I am sure the passenger needs to discharge the cylinder)

will appreciate your assistance, cheers

Brother when you get to the check in counter you have to tell them that you have an airgun.
They will call the airport police to come over and check the airgun.
And to check if anything else is with airgun.
The airgun must be packaged in its own box or bag not in your suitcases.
You can not have anything else with the airgun.
You can carry all your other bits and bobs in your suitcases.
Pellets
Oil
Greese
Scopes and anything else not a problem.

I think there's no duty of you are bringing it yourself. About two years back I asked this from customs and was told so.
