U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) contractors, including contractors who enter and exit by U.S. military transportation and work in Iraq only on U.S. military bases or at U.S. Government facilities, should note that all foreign persons now are fully subject to Iraqi entry and exit requirements. While Iraqi immigration laws have not been enforced actively in the past with regard to U.S. government contractors, the Iraqi and U.S. Governments recently notified U.S. Government contractors that Iraqi immigration law will begin to be enforced at various points of entry/exit, including at airports and border crossings, and that U.S. military contractors are fully subject to these requirements. The entry/exit requirements appear to be evolving as the Iraqi Ministry of Interior (MOI) assumes sole authority for the visa process for contractor personnel in Iraq.
