Authorities in Iraq have begun to close the borders in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19 to the country. In the past week Move One has witnessed the following closures and delays:
- Ibrahim Khalil Border crossing with Turkey is closed until further notice for both passengers and cargo.
- All border points with Iran are closed until further notice – expected to be at least 2 weeks.
- Safwan border crossing has been closed on the Kuwaiti side since February 24th.
- Trebil border crossing with Jordan is currently operating but may be closed as early as March 2nd.
- Umm Qasr port is operating normally with no disruptions expected over the next 72 hours – Iraqi Ministry of Transportation and Ministry of Health will review in the morning of March 4th and update.
- Turkish Airlines TK has stopped passenger flights to all Iraqi airports (EBL, BGW, BSR). Cargo flights will operate for another 48 hours, and the Turkish Ministry of Health will make a decision depending on the situation then.
- Other airlines (Emirates EK, Qatar QR, and Middle Eastern MEA) are operating normal passenger and cargo flight schedules to all Iraqi airports with another review expected in 24-48 hours.
Move One is expecting another update on all border crossings on March 2nd and will update our clients of any changes as they are reported. Move One’s 7 offices and warehouses in Iraq continue to operate at full capacity and we continue to support all facets of the Iraqi economy with time-sensitive delivery services. We are closely monitoring the situation and as a contingency Move One has secured additional storage facilities in Mersin, Turkey and all major Iraqi border and entry points in Iraq. These facilities will allow Move One to safely store any cargo in transit and to adjust to the rapidly changing situation.
