Receive Information and Tips about Iraq from American Expats

Obviously, embarking on expat life in Iraq is not only about packing boxes and getting some paperwork done. The regular exchange with your American compatriots is also an important aspect of the expat experience and can help you get accustomed to the Iraqi culture and people. InterNations helps you meet and interact with other Americans in Iraq, living in Baghdad, Mosul, Basra and many other places across the country. Just take a look at our group of Americans in Baghdad or Americans in Erbil.

So, if you should ever feel like speaking your mother tongue, finding out where to shop for American food, or chatting about your favorite team’s latest match, join the American InterNations Community:

  • Browse our high-quality expat network to find like-minded expatriates from the USA in Iraq.
  • Receive and share advice in our Iraq Expat Forums – e.g. how to find a nanny speaking your kids’ native tongue or where to shop for stuffed turkey in Baghdad...
  • Browse the InterNations Places database for Iraq to find institutions like the nearest American embassy and many others.

From the fertile, settled lands of former Mesopotamia to the small coastline bordering the Persian Gulf, we’ll get you in touch with helpful and friendly American expats in Iraq.

Take Part in Various Expat Activities to Meet Fellow Americans in Iraq

Additionally, you are cordially invited to participate in our regular expat events and activities taking place in Iraq. Our events cover various interests and range from a small expat dinner to enjoy the traditional Iraqi masgouf, to big expat get-togethers with hundreds of guests in Baghdad's top locations. You may also join one of our expat excursions for a weekend trip to visit Lower Mesopotamia, the cradle of ancient civilizations, the vast Iraqi desert, and other impressive landmarks across Iraq.

This way, our events and activities are a very nice occasion to meet fellow expats from the USA and around the world in a casual atmosphere. Interested? Sign up for membership and you’ll soon be welcomed with a warm Hello from our Americans living in Iraq!
