Dear Valued Customer 
It has been confirmed that a curfew will be imposed in all of Iraq including Basra and Um Qasr starting on Thursday 18th February, with 24 hours curfew on Fridays and Saturdays and from 8 PM to 5 AM during weekdays. 
We expect the port staff to be able to move normally.  There might be a few delays during the initial implementation but for now, we expect business as usual.   
As such we expect BGT to operate normally.  
We will keep you posted if there is any further news. Please stay safe. 
Yours sincerely, BGT Team
