UN personnel in Iraq operates in a volatile security environment. International personnel operating in Iraq must take online security awareness in the field training (BSAFE) prior to arrival in Iraq and undertake a mandatory Security Induction Awareness Training (SAIT) or SSAFE immediately upon arrival.
Baghdad, Iraq, is a non-family duty station which is classified as Hardship Level E by the United Nations Department of Safety and Security. UN staff members and United Nations Volunteers work and live in a secure compound. Their movements outside the compound are guided by the prevalent UN security guidelines in the duty station.
The official offices of UNITAD will be located inside the “International Zone”, which comprises all UN Offices operating out of Baghdad.
Stringent security measures are in place throughout the country, and UN Volunteers, as other UN staff, are quite limited in all duty stations in Iraq when it comes to movement. Where travel to Baghdad is required movement within the “International Zone”, is done using armoured vehicles. Currently there are UN flights (UNAMI) covering Iraq and Kuwait. There are many international flights to Erbil, Baghdad and Basrah.
The Rest and Recuperation (R&R) cycle in Baghdad is 4 weeks, with the designated place of R&R being Amman, Jordan. The dominant currency in use in Iraq is USD. The Iraq Dinar is used with an exchange rate of approximately USD 1 = 1,250 Iraqi dinars.
The market is mostly cash-based; both USD and Iraqi Dinar are widely accepted. Payments by credit cards are accepted in a limited number of shops. Inside the UN Compound, there are a number of restaurants and 1 mini market to serve the staff. UN personnel need to be culturally sensitive and adjust to the culture of the country.
Iraq is a unique country that provides for an interesting and enriching environment, but also requires a mature level of cultural awareness, as well as more stamina and commitment than elsewhere to make life comfortable and affordable. Therefore, flexibility and the ability and willingness to live and work in harsh and potentially hazardous conditions, involving physical hardship and little comfort, are essential.
