Embassy requirements and legalisation fees
All shipments to Jordan must be covered by an Arab-Irish Certificate of Origin and along with an Invoice must certified by the JA-ICC. If legalisation is required then our Chamber will arrange legalisation by the Jordanian Embassy in London or by the Honorary Consul in Dublin.
Health Certificates are often required for foodstuffs, beverages, live animals and plants.
With regard to meat & poultry exports, a Certificate issued by the Department of Agriculture stating that the meat/poultry has not been treated with hormones [hormone-free] is required. This Certificate should be attached to the Cert. of Origin, Invoice and any other document which must be certified by the JA-ICC and then legalised.
A Halal Certificate stating that slaughter was according to Muslim law must accompany fresh, frozen meat and poultry.
One of the following two statements are optional on all Invoices submitted for Certification and/or Legalisation for Jordan and must be signed by the exporter:-
"We certify this Invoice to be true and correct and that the goods referred to are of [state countries of origin]. We also certify that the goods enumerated are not of Israeli origin and do not contain Israeli materials, nor are being exported from Israel."


"We certify this Invoice to be true and correct and that the goods referred to are 100% of [state country of origin]."
Legalisation fees is a fixed fee of 126.00 per commercial document (original or copy).
