Government lockdown measures including restrictions on commercial activity as well as civilian movements remain in place across the country. A curfew between 11:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. is in place seven days a week within all governorates, including across the KRI. Citizens across Iraq and within KRI are permitted to travel between governorates as well as between KRI and Federal Iraq. However, the approach of local authorities has varied across governorates.
In terms of aviation, international airports in Baghdad, Basra and Erbil remain open for commercial flights following their re-opening in late July, although flight schedules remain unstable and subject to rapid changes in documentation requirements and the airports are running at lower capacity than prior to the pandemic. Flights for emergencies, medical evacuations, carrying cargo, and chartering are operational.
