Location: Baghdad, Iraq

The Iraqi Ministry of Health has confirmed cases of COVID-19 within Iraq.

One commercial flight organized by the U.S. Embassy departed Baghdad today – this was the only flight scheduled from Baghdad.  If you want to buy a ticket for another flight, and are willing to pay the estimated $3500 cost for flights to the United States, e-mail BaghdadACS@state.gov.  If there is sufficient demand, we may be able to secure an additional flight.  Please e-mail us only if you are willing to travel soon and will purchase a ticket or seek loan assistance.

If you have not yet contacted the U.S. Embassy about flight availability, please fill out the form in the link below so that we would alert you to future flights if available:
