Re: Import License

Dear Sir or Madam

The Iraqi Commercial Attache in London due to new regulations of legislation, would like to draw your attention that it will legalise documents of (Certificate of Origin & Commercial Invoice) for goods going to the private sector, only if they are accompanied by a copy of the Import License which is issued by The State Company for Iraqi Fairs and Commercial Services (is not required to be legalised) and should contain the quantity and the price listed in the license.

The starting date of the procedure will be on the 16th of April 2018. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any further information and thank you for your cooperation.

Best regards,

The Iraqi Commercial Attache


The Arab-Irish Chamber of Commerce

The Arab-Irish Chamber of Commerce was founded in 1987 to promote and support the growth and development of trade and commercial relations between Ireland and the Arab countries The AICC offers a range of specialist services to support Irish exporters in doing business with the Arab countries and to help Arab enterprises to do business in Ireland.

Key among these services are the provision of our AICC Certificates of Origin as required by the Arab countries; the Certification and Legalisation of all types of commercial documents; the delivery of a technical translation service to and from Arabic, and assistance with visas where required.

The Arab markets collectively are an important trading block for indigenous Irish exporters and their significance grows year by year. They are attractive markets for Irish exporters for many reasons: they import many of the products and services which Irish companies can supply competitively; they have considerable resources to fund their imports; their rising population causes demand to grow year after year - and they are not far away.

The AICC also organises events throughout the year to welcome visiting delegations and to facilitate networking and interaction between our members and clients.
