The following documents are required to import goods into Saudi Arabia: commercial invoice; certificate of origin; bill of lading (or airway bill); steamship company certificate; insurance certificate; packing list; certificate of conformity; special documents.

All consumer products require Arabic labelling. It is particularly important for companies marketing food, personal care, healthcare and pharmaceutical products. Those products that are not appropriately labelled may be rejected at the port of entry by the quality control laboratories. Moreover, products which arrive in the country with short periods before expiration will generally be rejected and prohibited from being sold on the market.

Free Trade Zones
There are no trade zones in Saudi Arabia but the Government is considering them.
