The Arab-Irish Chamber of Commerce
RAMADAN AND EID AL-FITR
The holy month of Ramadan began on Monday 6th May and is expected to end on approximately Tuesday 4th June.
Please note that during the holy month of Ramadan, Muslims fast from dawn to sunset and the Arab Embassies work shorter hours. This will result in delays in processing documentation.
The end of Ramadan is marked by a three-day period of special prayers, feasts and gift-giving called Eid-Al-Fitr. Generally the Arab Embassies shut for approximately 5 working days for the Eid-Al-Fitr holiday. It is therefore advisable to present urgent documents in good time.

The Arab-Irish Chamber of Commerce was founded in 1987 to promote and support the growth and development of trade and commercial relations between Ireland and the Arab countries The AICC offers a range of specialist services to support Irish exporters in doing business with the Arab countries and to help Arab enterprises to do business in Ireland.
Key among these services are the provision of our AICC Certificates of Origin as required by the Arab countries; the Certification and Legalisation of all types of commercial documents; the delivery of a technical translation service to and from Arabic, and assistance with visas where required.
The Arab markets collectively are an important trading block for indigenous Irish exporters and their significance grows year by year. They are attractive markets for Irish exporters for many reasons: they import many of the products and services which Irish companies can supply competitively; they have considerable resources to fund their imports; their rising population causes demand to grow year after year - and they are not far away.
The AICC also organises events throughout the year to welcome visiting delegations and to facilitate networking and interaction between our members and clients.
