Visiting Iraq

How to apply for business visa

Applications for business visas should be made at the Iraqi Consulate prior to departure. Consular officials at the Iraqi Embassy have indicated that visa approval can take two to six weeks from the date of submission. Visas are issued to business people, provided that they have official invitations from Iraqi authorities or are introduced as such by their respective Ministries of Foreign Affairs and are supplied with letters from the Chamber of Commerce. Applicants should also submit a letter of request from their own company stating the reason for their travel.

Investors can also submit their visa applications to the NIC – PR department exclusively and through the email address shown below with filling the following format providing not to mix Arab and foreign names together.
