What is a QIZ?

Qualified Industrial Zones (QIZ) is a unilateral act by the USA in an innovation designed to encourage Jordanian exports to the U.S market, thus inviting National and International Companies to take advantage of this unprecedented initiative enabling Jordan to offer a unique opportunity to all Manufacturers.

This new concept allows goods manufactured in these Zones to enter the USA Duty free & Quota free thus offering a unique opportunity to all International Manufacturers to move their Industries to these Zones.
The advantages of the QIZ are numerous:

Assures Duty and Tariff free access to the US market.

No Quotas on export to U.S. market for products manufactured in the QIZ.

Total Income and Social Tax exemption.

Imported materials are not subject to Custom Duties.

No restriction on Project ownership.

No restriction on Foreign Currency transactions.

No time limits or renewal requirements for QIZ's.

Full repatriation of capital and profits and salaries.

U.S. customs tariff on certain goods entering the USA that will be saved by the Investor in the QIZ for certain items are as follows:

From 25% up to 48% on Footwear:Waterproof , with metal Toe-cap, covering the knee, Sports Footwear, designed for use without closure, Work Footwear, Footwear with open toes or open heels, Footwear of the slip-on type, and parts of Footwear.
From 20% up to 33.6% on Woven Fabrics, Textiles, Garments, Swimwear, Body suits, Shirts, Trousers, Suits, Jackets, Raincoat, Underwear, Blouses, Skirts, Blazers, Ski-suits, Anoraks, for both women & men.
From 18% up to 34% on Tableware, Kitchenware, other Household and Toilet articles of Porcelain or China, Hotel or Restaurant ware, Glassware ,Ceramic tableware, Glass ceramics, Drinking glasses, other Glassware of Lead crystal.
From 6% to 20% on Trunks, Suitcases, Attaché Cases, Wallets, Handbags.
From 10% to 20% on Cheeses.

Qualifying your product:
To qualify a product in the QIZ, contents of any product produced in the QIZ must represent a minimum of 35% of the appraised value.
There are three methods to comply with the requirements:


of the 35% minimum QIZ content, the breakdown must be not less than:
11.7% from a Jordan QIZ
8.0% from Israel (7% for high tech. goods)
The Israeli percentage level is valid for a five year period, beginning Feb. 1999. The remaining content, to reach the 35% total required, may come from either a Jordan QIZ, Israel, USA or West Bank/Gaza. 

The Jordanian and Israeli manufacturers may each maintain at least 20% of the total production cost of the QIZ manufactured goods (excluding profits). Production costs may include (Raw materials, Packing materials), Wages and Salaries, Design and R & D.

 Mixing and matching of the two above methods is also allowed.

Important Note:
In apparel manufacturing, imported fabric can be considered as local (made in QIZ) raw material if double substantial transformation occurs locally. Double substantial transformation in the case of fabric can be cutting and sewing. It is important to note that the cost of the fabric that is cut and  sewn locally will be admissible when calculating the 35% minimum value added content requirement (the primary requirement). It will not. However, be taken into consideration when calculating the respective share of each country under the first method.
