Advice

๐Ÿ›ก๏ธ Travel safety

Do not travel

If it is safe to do so, you should leave Iraq as soon as possible. If you are in Iraq despite our advice, check media for updates on new safety or security threats. The level of our advice has not changed. Do not travel to Iraq. On 3 January, a US airstrike near the Baghdad International Airport killed an Iranian senior commander and Iraqi paramilitary leaders. The security situation could deteriorate with little warning. We haven't changed our level of advice: Do not travel to Iraq, including the Kurdistan Region of Iraq, due to the volatile security situation and very high risk of violence, armed conflict, kidnapping and terrorist attack.
