Restrictions on the Use of U.S. Passports for Travel to Iraq Lifted

The Department of State has revoked the restriction on the use of U.S. passports for travel to, in or through Iraq set forth in Public Notice 4283 of February 25, 2003 (68 FR 8791), as amended by Public Notice 4337 of April 16, 2003 (68 FR 18722), as further amended by Public Notice 4366 of May 15, 2003 (68 FR 26371), effective July 14, 2003.

The security threat to all American citizens in Iraq remains high, and our ability to provide emergency services to Americans in Iraq is still very limited. U.S. citizens considering travel to Iraq should consult the current Travel Warning for Iraq and relevant Public Announcements available on the Department of State’s Bureau of Consular Affairs web site, http://travel.state.gov, prior to finalizing travel plans. Moreover, a U.S. passport does not guarantee entry to Iraq. Information regarding entry and exit requirements for Iraq is available on the Coalition Provisional Authority’s web site at, www.cpa-iraq.org/regulations/index.html.
