A range of specialist services to help Irish companies trade with the Arab world

Important information for businesses exporting to the UAE

The AICC provides a range of specialist services to help Irish companies trade with the Arab world. We offer a one-stop solution to support Irish businesses in succeeding in these important markets. Our unique professional export documentation services support Irish exporters in doing business and are an essential asset to Arab-Irish trade.

With our extensive experience and because of our excellent relationships with the relevant embassies, we are ideally positioned to assist Ireland’s exporters trading in the Arab markets.  At the AICC we look after all certification and legalisation requirements, including the new Attestation Fee, which was introduced by the UAE authorities in February 2023.

The Attestation Fee requires all companies exporting to the UAE to pay a new flat rate for every commercial invoice valued above 10,000 AED.  But this doesn’t have to be an additional administrative burden. That’s our role, and our processes help ensure there is no additional administration nor delays for companies exporting east as a result of this new fee. 

It’s our business to help your business do business in the Arab world, seamlessly.

Our mission is simple – we connect businesses with expertise, promoting and supporting the growth of Irish companies in the Arab States. Utilising the latest technologies for our services, we are Ireland’s information hub for exporters to the Arab world. We also offer a personal document legalisation service for individuals travelling to Middle Eastern countries to live and work.
