Customs checkpoints between KRG, Iraq to be removed soon


The customs checkpoints on the highways between Iraq and Kurdistan are expected be removed, amid enhancing relations between Baghdad and Erbil.

Built by the federal government in late 2017, the customs offices have affected the Kurdish businessmen. Thus, the removal of the checkpoints is expected to develop trade in the region.

Baghdad expressed readiness to remove the customs offices by February 17, in accordance with bilateral agreements.

The taxation system at all checkpoints across Iraq is expected be reorganized.

The checkpoints are located between Kirkuk-Erbil, Kirkuk-Sulaimaniya, and Duhok-Mosul.
