MEA issues advisory for Indians going to Iraq

The advisory was issued on the heels of incidents of Indians being subjected to long working hours with poor salaries in Iraq.



New Delhi: The Ministry of External Affairs
on Thursday advised Indians wanting to work in Iraq to be very
careful and exercise "due diligence" while accepting any job
offers there.

"It has come to the Ministry`s attention that in recent
months, some Indian nationals have been lured to work in Iraq
by unscrupulous Indian and Iraqi recruiting agents. On
reaching there, they have often discovered that they were
misled and are keen to return home," the Ministry said in a
release here.

It said while the MEA and the Indian Embassy in Baghdad
are doing everything possible to assist the Indian nationals
in question, all prospective workers are strongly advised to
be very careful while accepting any such job offer.

"It is important that due diligence is exercised and
antecedents of the recruiting agents and the credentials of
the employers are checked carefully through concerned
governmental bodies before accepting offers of such nature,"
it said.

The advisory was issued on the heels of incidents of
Indians being subjected to long working hours with poor
salaries in Iraq after being reportedly duped by unscrupulous
travel agents.
