In order for U.S. exporters to qualify for preferential access to the Israeli market under The United States Free Trade Agreement , a special certificate of origin must accompany all shipments from the United States to Israel. 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.
American 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.
