Arab Export Documents

Export documentation for trading with Arab League nations.

The Arab British Chambers of Commerce (A-BCC) use a unique, bilingual (English/Arabic) Certificate of Origin which conforms to international regulations and is accepted by all governments. Swift processing of documentation is ensured by the Chamber's nationwide network consisting of Agent Chambers who verify documents prior to submission to the ABCC for certification. The Chamber's close links with the Arab Embassies in London also facilitates prompt processing of your documentation. If requested, A-BCC are able to facilitate legalisation of commercial documents by consular sections of the Arab Embassies.
