Travel restrictions and advisories

The U.S. Department of State has issued a level 4 travel advisory for Iraq, the reason cited being armed conflict and terrorism. The notice goes on to say, that as a U.S. citizen, you’ll run a high risk of being kidnapped or experiencing violence (1). Britain's Foreign and Commonwealth Office has similar recommendations, though a bit less rigorous - stating that only essential travel to Iraq is advised. British citizens are also urged to avoid a number of regions within the country which are deemed unacceptable, from a safety standpoint (2).

Does Iraq impose duties on household goods?

If after speaking with the government in your origin country, you determine that moving to Iraq is permitted - you may wish to ignore these travel warnings and proceed. If that’s the case, you may be curious about what (if any) import duties Iraqi customs will impose. Though duty exemption is not granted by Iraqi customs currently, the rates are quite reasonable.

You’ll only be required to pay between 8% and 10% of the value of your household goods. Customs also stipulates that shipments arrive no later than six months after you enter the country. You’re also not permitted to transfer ownership, lend out to others or get rid of these items while in Iraq. Finally, you must have all paperwork to the destination agent, no later than 15 days before your shipment enters port (3).

Does Iraq require paperwork for household goods?

Customs must have a copy of your passport and the Original Bill of Lading or Air Waybill for your shipment. A full packing list and a pro-forma invoice are also required (4). A visa issued by the Iraqi embassy in Washington D.C. (for U.S. citizens) and an Employment Letter must be submitted as well. A separate Employment Contract and a valid Work Permit or Residence Permit should also be provided. You’ll also need to have a detailed inventory that lists the values for all of your goods and a Power of Attorney (5).

Does Iraq impose duties on vehicles?

While many times countries have different duty rates for vehicles, Iraq does not follow this pattern. You’ll pay the same 8% to 10% in import duties and taxes, when bringing your vehicle into the country. This will be charged on the value of the vehicle as listed on the pro-forma invoice (which you will submit). In addition, you are only permitted to import vehicles that were manufactured two years ago or less (6).

Does Iraq require paperwork for vehicles?

First you must provide the pro-forma invoice, as this is the basis for the vehicle’s value (which you will declare to customs). Your passport and the Original Bill of Lading are also required. Any documents pertaining to your ownership of the vehicle should also be shown. This includes the vehicle’s title, which was issued by your country of origin (7).

While this discussion of the documents and duties involved when relocating to Iraq is an excellent start - it is hardly definitive. For the most thorough treatment of this important topic, it’s recommended that you discuss the matter directly with Iraqi customs. This will allow you to verify that no important details have been missed, which could lead to problems during customs clearance.

Tips on how to make your international move easier

Relocation may be a tough task to do alone. However, by applying the following handy tips, you can make your international move easier:

  • Research: Get familiar with the requirements for migrating or shipping to Iraq. Make good use of the information available such as on the US Department of Transportation (USDOT) website. Contacting the Embassy of Iraq will also give you all the information you need for a successful move.
  • Proper packaging: This makes it easy for the movers to easily handle, store and transport your belongings. It also secures your property from damage.
  • Document preparation: This will save you a lot of time. It will also give you peace of mind; you will not panic at the eleventh hour for you will be well prepared.
  • Liaise with the moving company: Communicating well, availing documents and information to the moving company and paying your bill on time will enable them to act on your order swiftly.

Satisfied Customers

“The Mazda which my dad bought me last year was delivered to Nebraska right on time! My dad in New Jersey has been asking me to check on it every day, but I told him I’m receiving status updates. He was extra careful since he had a lot of issues with his previous car carrier service provider. When I checked my Mazda upon arrival, it was all good. Cannot really complain. My dad was also really happy everything went well.”

“Dear Tracey, I am in the high technology industry with lots and lots of global competition, so I fully appreciate competitive selling situation. In today's fast paced business environment, true customer service is becoming an exception rather than a standard practice. I maintain this fact as I sell to my global clients ranging from electronic giants like Samsung, Motorola to unknown smaller customers in Taiwan. I took notice of Nicole's exceptional professionalism on the phone and her empathy to an already fraustrated customer (dealing with another transport company). Her followup after my initial inquiry for a quote is truly the reason why I chose to do my business with A1 Auto Transport. If Nicole's Customer Service skills are mere routine practice in your firm, then Bravo to management; if not, Nicole deserves to be recognized. Best Wishes, Homin Paik”

“Since it was my first move, I fell straight into a transportation scam on my first try. I paid a deposit to a supposed company, but nobody ever came to pick up the car. I learned my lesson, and searched the internet for every company I could find. I looked through reviews, read their sites, eliminated the ones who seemed suspicious, and finally settled on A1 Auto Transport. Joe understood my position and skepticism immediately and spared no effort to reassure me. I don’t know about the rest, but this company is legit. They picked up my car on Friday, November 7th at 1 pm and delivered it to New Mexico on November 10 in the morning. The entire team was very friendly and professional. Thank you for all your help!”

“Reliable! My Ford Ranger was due to be picked up at 2PM, but they came early by 15 minutes. I was delighted since I had a doctor's appointment. The pickup and delivery was handled professionally. It got to Minnesota on time. A1 Auto Transport knows how to make things easy for its clients. I can't imagine risking my vehicle with another transport service provider. Time is gold for me, so I am definitely saving their number for future reference and referrals!”
