How long is the flight to Iraq from the UK?

The flight time from the UK to Iraq is 5h 35m direct, but that figure can vary based on many things. For instance, your airport of departure, the number of stopovers, and even the airline you choose will affect flight time. The most popular launch point for flights to Iraq is London Heathrow Airport, which is the largest and busiest in the UK. Other airports include London Gatwick, Edinburgh Airport, Birmingham Airport, and Manchester Airport. In Iraq, the most common destination is Baghdad, but other cities have airports, including Najaf, Basra, Erbil, and numerous others. Note that a single stop can extend your flight time to 10h or longer.

Which cities offer direct flights to Iraq from the UK?

There are no cities that offer direct flights to Iraq from the UK. All flights require at least one stopover along the way. However, this may actually work to your benefit, as flights with stopovers are usually more affordable than direct flights anyway. A flight with two stopovers may be more affordable than a flight with one, as well. Some of the airlines serving flights to Iraq from the UK include Qatar Airways, British Airways, and Turkish Airlines. Some of the more common stopovers include Istanbul and Qatar.

What is the best way to get around Iraq?

The best way to get around in Iraq is by car. You can rent a car at most major airports and in most major cities within the nation. Air travel is also one of the better options, and you will find routes serviced between Baghdad, Basra, Sulaymaniyah, and Erbil. Taxis can also be rented and can take you to destinations within the city, but can also go between towns. However, you should negotiate the fare before starting the trip. Note that there is just one railway and it runs between Baghdad and Basra only.

What are some things to do in Iraq?

While many parts of Iraq remain unsafe for Western travelers, some areas can be visited and explored. During a stay here, it may be worth visiting Imam Hussain’s Shrine, Erbil Citadel, the Al-Jawadain Holy Shrine, Baghdadi Museum, the Great Mosque of Kufa, the city of Babylon, and the Ziggurat of Ur to name just a few attractions.

Do I need a passport to fly to Iraq?

Yes, British citizens must have a valid passport in order to enter Iraq. In addition, your passport must be good for at least six months after your date of entry. Note that you must also have a visa to enter the country, which will cost between £30 and £70 depending on the duration of your stay. Single-entry visas are good for up to three months from the date of issue. A multiple-entry visa gives you entrance for between six months and one year. Note that the UK government strongly urges travelers to avoid Iraq as it remains a dangerous place for Westerners.
