In Iraq, there are delays in payouts under StarthilfePlus

08 October 2021

Please note that the programme benefits of StarthilfePlus (additional Corona payments and 2nd startup assistance) are currently only payed out on a delayed basis in Iraq.

Elections will be held in Iraq beginning 10 October 2021 which will result in the inability to collect funds during this time. A return to full payout activities is scheduled to resume on 17 October 2021.

IOM staff in the field have already contacted those returnees whose payment period has expired to inform them directly of the situation and how to proceed. IOM colleagues are in regular communication with the IOM offices in Iraq in order to get the processes back on track as quickly as possible.
