Start Your New Life as an Expat in Baghdad

Everyone is aware of the destruction that has befallen the once majestic city of Baghdad over the past few decades, yet there are still many expats living and working in the capital. Efforts to restore the city's infrastructure and improve the security situation have reassured many people considering the move. The Green Zone in particular has a strong military presence and has a number of restaurants, cafes, and shops; this area is also home to Zawra Park and Baghdad Zoo.
