Get in[edit]

Travel Warning WARNING: It is a war zone. The city and province are EXTREMELY dangerous for foreigners, as well as Kurds, Christians, etc. You will put your life at risk if you enter Al Jazira. Numerous traffic checks dot the highways, and in addition to being treated as a suspect for suspicious activity by the military, one runs the risk of being totally exposed if a full car search is conducted (which occurs frequently).

When travelling to Iraqi Kurdistan, avoid this province. This must be made extremely clear with taxi drivers (who will not be too keen on travelling to Al Jazira themselves).

One can be aware if they are entering Al Jazira province by the flags at the checkpoints. Know the difference between Iraq and Iraqi Kurdistan flags-- it might save your life.
