Although there are many chambers of commerce in the United States most Arab countries require the Arab Chamber of Commerce stamp.
If your case only requires the chamber stamp without embassy certification, please click here to fill the form and include it with your document. The fee is $25.00 per stamp.

We now accept the invoice and certificate of origin in 2 different ways:
1- Document sent via FedEx, UPS or regular mail.
2- By email in PDF format. You must call after emailing so that we can confirm receiving the documents and that they are acceptable for certification.

As a convenience for our customers who need to create a C/O & C/I we have provided a fillable PDF online. Click here to fill the form, then print it, sign it and PDF it as per instructions above or mail it. 

Payment

We encourage all customers to send their payment in the form of a company check or U.S. Money Order payable to: Arab American Chamber of Commerce.
We also accept Visa, Master card, and American Express credit card payments through US Legalization.
(There will be an extra 3% handling fee for using a credit card)
Upon request for billing, pharmaceuticals companies that are registered with the FDA, patent and trade mark offices, and forwarding companies that have a current "G" account will receive their invoice with the certified documents. We also accept to bill our current customers whose charge of certification is under $300, as long as their account is current.

Mailing

If you are using FedEx or -UPS-, please send a self addressed airway bill for return of your document (make sure that it has your account number or your credit card number and expiration date, and that you have signed it). If you are using regular or priority USPS mail, please include a stamped, self addressed envelope.
