Important Updates for Companies Registered in Iraq: IQ Domain and Postal Box Instructions

With reference to Article 17 of the Federal General Budget Law for the years 2023, 2024, and 2025, specifically Paragraph Six – A, the Ministry of Trade hereby mandates that all registered companies must utilise the IQ domain. This directive is to be carried out in collaboration with the Communication and Media Commission. Additionally, companies are required to establish postal boxes in conjunction with the General Post and Savings Company.

You are required to visit the Media and Communication Commission to reserve a website domain ending in (.iq), and to approach the General Post and Savings Company to set up a postal box. These actions must be completed within a maximum period of thirty days from the date of this notice. Failure to comply will result in the company not receiving any legal responses.

Please refer to the list of postal offices where these services are available here.

How will this affect your company?

Should your company wish to renew its license or receive specific letters addressed to other departments, the Registrar will only process such requests once the aforementioned instructions are met. The Registrar of Companies (ROC) will send all notifications to the designated postal box.

When will these changes take effect?

These changes will be effective from the date of publication on Jan 7, 2024.
