Latest announcement on COVID-19

Position, 12.05.2020

On 10 May 2020, the government of Iraq decided to change the hours of the nationwide curfew to 5 p.m. until 5 a.m. until the end of Ramadan. A total lockdown is being applied on Fridays and Saturdays. A full curfew will also be applied during Eid Al Fitr holidays.  

Governorates are allowed to apply different measures and extensions. Regionally valid curfew hours may therefore differ from this order. 

The Embassy of Switzerland in Jordan, accredited to Iraq, refers to its previous news announcements for further information and urges all its citizens in Iraq to follow the instructions of the authorities and abide by the measures taken.
