    Other Banks

    Does anyone have an Iraqi Bank account other than with Warka Bank?

    If so would you be willing to share your opinion about your experiences with your bank.

    Would you recommend (this bank) to others and would you provide contact information so other may follow suit.

    Thank you.

    I'd also be interested if anyone has an account with another bank in Iraq.

    I sent out several requests during the last 3 weeks to "other banks" customer service departments but no replies.

    I will try again this week to see if I can get a response.

    Here was an email I received recently. I went to National Bank's website and used their "contact us" tab.

    Of course not the answer I was hoping for..

    Hi James

    Its does suck that you cannot open an account in Iraq. My story I was able to open an account with Credit Bank of Iraq back in 2006 thru National Bank of Kuwait. I have been trying to contact them since 2007. They do have a branch in New York I called and get nothing a recording. I also read that all account that not active since 2012 will closed and all funds will be returned in to the CBI. So I keep trying! Good Luck!

    I have not really looked any more into the Iraq banks.
    Now that I am with al Karmal they use (BBOB) to transfer funds. I have funds at al Karmal for dividends and some money I wired to them. I can either keep buying stocks or let hose funds sit there. If/when there is an increase of currency value I can request money be sent back to me from al Karmal. Now if al Karmal would offer a credit card that would be nice.
    Warka still might be an option but I would not send money to them anymore. Just hope I would be able to close that account ASAP.
