The ruling means Kurdistan Region visas will not be issued to people from the 10 countries of Ethiopia, Kenya, Bangladesh, Sierra Leone, Ghana, Liberia, Nigeria, Uganda, Senegal and Congo. Residents will not be allowed to enter the Kurdistan Region, even if they have secured a visa from an Iraqi embassy or consulate.
