Please Note:

In order to minimise any potential business disruption from any future office closure as a result of  the COVID-19 virus we would encourage you to send or copy all correspondence to us by email, and make any payments by electronic transfer. This is to ensure that, in the event that our office is required to close, we can continue to receive and deal with all incoming correspondence remotely.


Visa Service

This service is for members only.

The AICC can assist with obtaining single or multiple entry Arab business visas from Arab embassies in London and Dublin. For certain countries visas can be obtained on arrival at airport (see below). For most Arab countries the following is required::

  • Passport valid for at least 6 months
  • Letter of invitation from sponsor, duly stamped by their local Chamber 
  • Passport photographs x 3
  • Company letter addressed to relevant embassy
  • Visa application form, completed (printed) in black pen 

For all Irish applicants to Saudi Arabia, please ensure that your sponsor sends the copy of his invitation to the Royal Embassy of Saudi Arabia in Dublin. If this invitation is sent to the Royal Embassy of Saudi Arabia in London, then the visa must be processed in London.

Countries providing visas to Irish/EU passport holders upon airport arrival:

  • Bahrain
  • Jordan
  • Lebanon
  • Morocco
  • Oman
  • Qatar
  • Tunisia
  • UAE
AICC admin and courier charges €50 + 23% VAT

There will also be additional embassy and visa (single/multiple entry) costs.

This service can only be provided for those countries with an Arab Embassy in Dublin or London.

We regret, therefore, we cannot provide a Visa service for Mauritania, Djibouti or Somalia.
