Destination: Iraq

Iraq lets ordinary passport holders from 45 countries travel to it without a prior visa.

In accordance with the law, citizens of all countries require a visa to visit Iraq. All visitors, except those arriving at Basra or Iraqi Kurdistan, must hold a passport valid for 6 months.

Only the citizens of Turkey may enter Iraq without a visa and only if arriving at Baghdad International Airport, directly from Turkey or (for max. 15 days) at Erbil and Sulaimaniyah. They can also obtain a visa on arrival at Al Najaf International Airport.

Nationals of Bahrain and Saudi Arabia can obtain a visa on arrival at Basra International Airport and Al Najaf International Airport.

For other nationals, in case of emergency an urgent visa may be issued on arrival at non-Kurdish ports of entry (Iraqi Kurdistan has a separate policy, see below) but only if the visitor can convince the immigration officer of circumstances that prevented him/her from obtaining a regular visa in advance. According to IATA, a signed and stamped letter issued by the Ministry of Interior of Iraq needs to be provided for this, although it is not clear whether this currently applies.
