Employment, business ventures, residency. These are the main reasons that documents will require legalising if you have UK-issued documents that you desire to use in Iraq.

Secondly, the document will require an Apostille stamp from the UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO).

The final step is to submit the document to the Iraqi embassy consular department in London for the last authentication.
