Expats living in Iraq



Unfortunately due to the current conflict in Iraq many expats have been moved by their company out of the country or to safer southern regions. Travel within Iraq remains dangerous and therefore we have restricted resources on information available for expats considering a move to Iraq.

Expat Clubs

There are no expat meet up clubs as such in Iraq and most expats communicate online through websites such as ExpatWoman.com.
