Commercial Documents Legalization for Qatar

Note: In our experience, the embassy of Qatar is rejecting most of the commercial invoices that we are submitting. The problem is that they will not review the documents unless they have been first stamped from the Arab Chamber of Commerce (which costs $90). Furthermore, we cannot review your document to advise you if your document will be accepted or not, because they keep finding new reasons to reject documents that we thought that they would accept.

For this reason, if your documents are rejected and we must resubmit them, you should expect an extra $40.00 service fee for each time we resubmit, and you may also have to pay another $45.00 chamber fee for each certificate you need to retype.

Our original service fee is non-refundable. Our company does not accept billing for C/O & C/I for Qatar.

Also, please note that there is no regular turnaround time to receive documents from the embassy of Qatar. Expect delays!

A Certificate of Origin and Commercial Invoice are both required for commercial exports to Qatar. Both Certificates must be signed and notarized. AACC will stamp the documents "final step" or stamp and legalize them from the Embassy of Qatar.

The embassy fee varies depending upon the total amount of the invoice.
