SULAIMANI (ESTA) — The Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) announced on Tuesday travelers who have been fully vaccinated do not need to take a PCR test for coronavirus to visit the Region.

In a statement, the Region’s ministry of health said travelers who visit the Kurdistan Region would be tested for coronavirus at airports and on the border crossings.

The ministry further said people who have already had results of a coronavirus test which is taken within 48 hours “do not need to be tested” at airports or on the border crossings.

“Those people who have a certificate of receiving two doses of coronavirus vaccines, which is confirmed and trusted, do not need to be tested on arrival,” the ministry added.

As of Monday, the Kurdistan Region had recorded 177,272 cases of COVID-19, including 4,373 deaths.
