One Response to Iraq to ease Visa Procedures for Investors

    A positive step!


    1- The decision only applies for investors from European countries , USA , Japan and Korea BUT what about from Arab countries ?

    2- Once again Basra airport immigration authority acts different to Baghdad's airport etc.!!

    3- Its about time to introduce a full online visa process. We are in 2018!!

    4- Exceptions with top priority should be given to Oil, Gas and Power projects' personnel. perhaps a one shop desk to be formed at the Oil, Electricity and industry ministries to grant visas, support with custom clearance and corporate taxation.
    This is vital to send positive singles to international investors and alike.

    GoI. should appreciate that we do need more reputable international firms to work in Iraq who should add value. Investors have so many options worldwide to consider.

    God bless Iraq

    Thank you
