Influential Iraqis, including Masoud Barzani’s sons, have purchased Dominican passports, according to the “Caribbean Passports” project. The evidence suggests that members of the Barzani family, including Jami, Judy, Adrina, and Lami, acquired Dominican citizenship in 2017. The phenomenon of “second citizenship” has flourished in Iraqi Kurdistan, with Dominica’s program suspended in 2022 due to document forgery suspicions.
