IMPACT – MEDIUM
The Iraqi government has banned international commercial flights to Erbil and Sulaymaniyah, complicating visa and travel processes for those traveling to the Kurdish region of the country. The ban follows a Kurdish vote on independence in late September and comes amid fighting over disputed territory. The situation in the Kurdish region remains fluid, but BAL’s latest information is as follows:
BAL Analysis: Employers should work closely with BAL when planning employee travel into or out of the Kurdish region. The situation continues to change rapidly, and travel requirements may change with little or no notice. BAL will continue to follow the situation closely and will alert clients to any significant developments.
This alert has been provided by the BAL Global Practice group and our network provider located in Iraq. For additional information, please contact your BAL attorney.
