A government bank directs its branches to sell the dollar on Friday and Saturday


Rasheed Bank announced today, Thursday, a new mechanism for selling dollars on Fridays and Saturdays for the purpose of receiving travelers.

The bank said in a statement, of which (Baghdad Today) received a copy, that “for the purpose of receiving travelers, we decided to sell the dollar on Friday and Saturday,” noting that “the designated branches are ten branches on both sides of Karkh and Rusafa” and are as follows: Al-Mahmudiyah / Al-Bayaa / Al-Ma’mun / Tigris / Revolution of the Twentieth / Al-Shula / Al-Karkh).

And the Rasheed Bank had announced on the twenty-sixth of last February a new mechanism for travelers, which is to review the branches that were designated to deposit the amount in Iraqi dinars and then receive the dollar from the Baghdad International Airport branch (exclusively).

On Friday, the 17th of last month, the official spokesman for the federal government, on behalf of Al-Awadi, announced the adoption of the official exchange rate of the dollar against the dinar at all Iraqi Airways outlets.

And the Central Bank of Iraq had decided, last January, to include banks that are allowed to participate in the electronic platform and wishing to participate in selling cash dollars for the purposes of travel, treatment and study.

The bank directed government banks (Al-Rafidain – Al-Rasheed – Trade Bank of Iraq TBI) to expand outlets for selling cash dollars to travelers in the country’s airports (Baghdad – Basra – Najaf – Erbil – Sulaymaniyah).

It is noteworthy that the Central Bank, in cooperation with the federal government, issued strict instructions to limit the smuggling of hard currency outside the country.  link
