Pursuant to a resolution issued by the Iraqi Ministry of Interior that came into force on 15 March 2021, citizens of the countries listed below no longer require advance visa arrangements to enter the Republic of Iraq (Iraq). Citizens from the following eligible countries may obtain a 60-day entry visa upon arrival at an Iraqi port of entry (the following list is subject to change):
|U||United Arab Emirates
Prior to this resolution all nationalities were required to obtain an entry visa before entering Iraq; it was not possible to obtain an entry visa upon arrival at the airport or other Iraqi ports of entry (with the exception of emergency visas).
Notwithstanding the issuance of this resolution, please note that foreigners that intend to work in Iraq are still required to apply for a work-permit prior to traveling to Iraq and they are not permitted to do so while in the country on an entry-visa.
This resolution will facilitate the process for obtaining an Iraqi visa and encourage foreign investors to travel to Iraq.
