DFA: Postpone all your scheduled travel to Iraq

-

- Advertisment -

The Department of Foreign Affairs in the Philippines has recently issued an advisory addressed to personnel of the international organizations and non-government organizations with humanitarian projects or speaking engagement to postpone their scheduled travel to the war-torn country Iraq. 

“The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) advises travelers to Iraq, particularly personnel of international organizations (IOs) and non-government organizations (NGOs) with humanitarian projects or speaking engagements in Iraq, to postpone their scheduled travel,” the advisory noted. 

If the planned trips can no longer be postponed, they are advised to check if there are active curfews currently imposed in their destination province in Iraq. 

“Travelers should avoid booking flights with early morning hour or late night hours arrivals in Baghdad, Basra, and other airports in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq,” the advisory concluded. 

The DFA did not mention why they’re imposing this. 

On January 14, the Philippine Overseas Employment Agency (POEA) has imposed a total ban on the employment of overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) to Iraq due to the escalating tensions between the US and Iran.
