    The Iraqi authorities accuse private companies and offices of bringing in workers, most of whom are of Asian nationalities, to work in Iraq, and bringing them into the labor market at wages that compete with local labor.
    In its statement, the Iraqi Ministry of Interior called for not sheltering foreigners who violate the work and residence law, and for immediate reporting of their whereabouts, in order to preserve the public interest.
    The problem of unlicensed foreign labor in the country is increasing not only in Iraq, but also in several provinces of the country. This is due to the employer's preference for Asian labor over local ones, due to low wages and increased working hours.

    In its statement, the Iraqi Ministry of Interior called for not sheltering foreigners who violate the work and residence law, and for immediate reporting of their whereabouts.
    And last Saturday, the authorities in Basra announced the arrest of 34 foreigners who violated the residency law. In the middle of this month, the Nineveh police announced the arrest of 16 foreigners working in various professions unlicensed and who do not have official residence, and taking the necessary legal measures against them.

    Illegal residence
    A spokesman for the Iraqi Ministry of Interior, Khaled Al-Muhanna, confirmed to Al-Araby Al-Jadeed that there are no specific numbers for the large numbers of foreign violators of the law who work inside Iraqi territory, because their entry took place illegally.
    Al-Muhanna explained that illegal foreign labor has greatly affected society, causing the deterioration of the labor market in Iraq, which increases the problem of unemployment.

    And he indicated that his ministry launched a wide campaign to control foreign workers who entered Iraqi territory and continued to reside illegally, in addition to legal accountability and the imposition of financial fines against employers, and the deportation of violating foreigners who are arrested.
    In Iraq, a work permit must be obtained for the foreign resident, and in the event that he carries out any commercial or financial activity, it will be considered a violation of the conditions of residency, while the Ministry of Labor is responsible for issuing work permits for foreigners with advance fees imposed on the recruiter and the worker himself, which makes the issue of the presence of large numbers of workers Unlicensed foreigners are an obvious problem in the local labor market.
    Most of them are active in the services, cleaning, construction, and oil sectors, and most of them are of Asian nationality, along with other nationalities, most notably Iranian, Syrian, Pakistani, and Afghani.

    foreign labor losses
    The researcher on Iraqi economic affairs, Omar al-Halbousi, said that foreign labor in Iraq is one of the methods of enslavement practiced by companies by bringing in a group of workers who are subject to harsh working conditions with low wages that are not comparable to their efforts.
    Al-Halbousi told Al-Araby Al-Jadeed that the illegal recruitment of foreign workers is due to the cheapness of imported labor, as well as their exploitation in difficult working conditions, even in illegal work, in addition to the ease of getting rid of them when they are no longer needed.

    However, he explained that this type of employment contributes to the exacerbation of the unemployment crisis, the disruption of the economy, and the depletion of financial resources, as this employment sends the money obtained from its work to its countries, which leads to the withdrawal of hard currency from Iraq.
    Al-Halbousi estimated the amount of money that comes out of Iraq in hard currency at about one billion dollars per month.

    Who benefits?
    The researcher in economic affairs, Ali Awwad, believes that the estimated numbers of illegal foreign workers in Iraq are estimated at hundreds of thousands, who practice a variety of jobs, and are distributed in various Iraqi governorates, and their presence constitutes an economic and security threat, in light of the turmoil that Iraq is going through.
    In his interview with Al-Araby Al-Jadeed, Awad confirmed that the biggest beneficiaries of illegal workers are private companies owned by influential people or others working under the protection of the armed factions that control large parts of the economic joints, and the process of facilitating the entry of these workers takes place through these factions.
    He explained that most of these workers are brought from various Asian countries illegally, in addition to bringing in Syrian workers who enter through the Kurdistan region, and then are smuggled to Baghdad or other provinces.
    He pointed out that obtaining official permits and completing approvals legally costs the investor huge amounts of money, in addition to the administrative and bureaucratic procedures for passing and entering labor, which contribute to raising the costs of their use, which prompts employers to seek to enter labor through illegal means.
