How to get a Certificate of Origin for Israel


All U.S. goods exported to Israel must be accompanied by a U.S.-Israel Certi cate of Origin signed by the exporter. In order to benefit from the provisions of the U.S.-Israel FTA, a special "US Certificate of Origin for Exporting to Israel" must be presented to Israel Customs.

The certificate will need to be notarized and stamped.

The correct certificate of origin is a hard copy, green color form, with instructions printed on the back page. Apperson Store is the only supplier of the original: http://store.apperson.com/Print-Document-Management/import-export-forms/CERTIFICATE-OF-ORIGIN-ISRAEL_2.html

Apperson sells pads of this form. Some American-Israel Chambers of Commerce sell single forms but they charge $25 + for a single form while Apperson charges $98.50 for a package of 500 forms.

For single forms try any American Israel Chamber of Commerce at: http://www.israeltrade.org/
