Iraq is a nation where the roots of human history run deep. It was the very cradle of human civilization some 6,000 years ago where man erected the first cities to ever be built in what was then Mesopotamia. What followed was thousands of years of glorious advancement, as Iraq acted as the focal point and crossroads for an assortment of human cultures. However, fast forward to today and most people think of the recent years of conflict that Iraq has endured. While the country still has its fair share of difficulties, its oil industry is beginning to grow once more and there are many opportunities for expats. Connect with our Iraqi expat community to discover job opportunities within the country, as well as ways for you to relax in secure surroundings.
