Rumors are circulating in the Iraqi capital that a new version of the Iraqi passport is to be published shortly, in a bid to combat rampant counterfeiting.
Residents report rumors of a new kind of passport, to be called “Type A,” which would eventually replace the Type G passport, which is current at the moment and, according to locals, very easy to counterfeit.
The rumored new passport is said to feature symbols that are more difficult to counterfeit. It’s also reported to have Kurdish-language text in addition to Arabic and English.
IraqSlogger cannot confirm this rumor at this time.
