  • What is a U.S. Certificate of Origin for Exports to Israel (form No. 10-388) and why do I need it?
    • In order for U.S. exporters to qualify for preferential access to the Israeli market, a special certificate of origin must accompany all shipments from the United States to Israel. The United States-Israel Free Trade Area Agreement (FTA) came into full effect in 1995. Under this agreement, American companies exporting to Israel can gain greater market access, reduce transaction costs, increase sales, enhance export revenues and become more competitive in the Israeli marketplace. Israeli Customs advises that it will no longer be possible for goods to be cleared through customs if the correct certificate of origin form is not attached to the other standard shipping documents. U.S. exporters are encouraged to qualify for preferential tariff treatment and to obtain, when necessary, a certificate of non-manipulation for transshipments. U.S. Commercial Service programs are available to U.S exporters interested in further exploring business opportunities in Israel and the Eastern Mediterranean Region.
