Summary

In response to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic, Iraqi authorities have imposed mobility restrictions since March 2020 aimed at curbing the spread of the virus. These measures include restrictions on travel and limitations on freedom of movement, such as the closure of airports and points of entry (PoEs) along land borders and maritime boundaries, as well as domestic movement restrictions.

IOM Iraq’s Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) assessed 29 locations between 16 June and 29 June 2020, of which 11 were reported as closed, 7 partially closed, and 11 open only for commercial traffic. This report presents an overview of mobility restrictions for the 18 monitored PoEs which have remained partially open, as well as for Iraq in general.
