The Arab-Irish Chamber of Commerce

The AICC office is closed for lunch from 1-2 daily.


The Arab Embassies in Dublin and London will shut for the occasion of Eid Al- Adha which is expected to begin 31st August 2017.  Eid Al-Adha, the Festival of Sacrifice, is the holiest Islamic festival celebrated annually and is celebrated by Muslims throughout the World at the end of Hajj the annual pilgrimage to Mecca.

The Eid holiday will vary from one Embassy to another.  Most of the Arab Embassies will shut for approximately 4-5 working days.  This closure will result in delays in the legalisation of documents.  It is therefore advisable to present any documents in good time as we cannot chase up or expedite documentation with any Embassy.

The AICC will shut on Friday September 1st

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. We hope that you find the information you need about our services and activities here on our website. Please get in touch if we can be of further assistance.

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 Chamber was established under the auspices of the General Union of Arab Chambers of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture which is part of the Arab League and which has its headquarters in Beirut. All of the Chambers of Commerce in the Arab countries are affiliated to the General Union.

We fulfil our mission through the delivery of a range of unique services to Irish exporting companies and through the provision of information, advice, introductions, connections and business leads to companies in Ireland and in the Arab markets.

The Arab markets collectively are the most important trading block for indigenous Irish exporters outside of Europe and North America, and their significance grows year by year. They are attractive markets for Irish exporters for various 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.

All Irish exporters to the Arab markets are clients of our Chamber and they rely on our unique services to underpin their business in the region. 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.

Our Chamber also organises various events throughout the year to welcome visiting delegations, to deliver important information, to mark special occasions and to facilitate networking and interaction between our members and clients.
