Do not travel

Iraq has implemented a range of measures in response to COVID-19, including travel restrictions, border closures, lockdowns and curfews. A flight suspension is currently in place. If you're in Iraq prepare to remain in place until the flight suspension is lifted. Monitor the media for information on latest developments and follow the advice of local authorities. With the volatile security environment and the ongoing threat of kidnappings, we advise you to leave Iraq as soon as you are able to do so.
