Welcome to Outpost Iraq Dubai!

We are delighted to welcome you to our Iraq website, administered by Outpost Iraq Dubai!

Here you can learn more about day-to-day life on assignments or business trips in Iraq, and how we can support partners and families back home. These initial webpages provide some high level information, but if you are registered with Outpost Iraq Dubai you will have access to much more detailed information about assignments in Iraq, with many documents available for you to download.

Outpost Iraq Dubai has been formed following the merger of Outpost Iraq and Outpost Dubai. Our new merged organisation combines depth and breadth, providing traditional community services to our members living in Dubai whilst embracing our global community of families associated with Shell Iraq through a range of information and virtual networking services.

Read on to learn more about our objectives, and who is eligible to register with Outpost Iraq Dubai. If you are planning to be based in Dubai we also recommend you visit our sister website at https://dubai.globaloutpostservices.com/

Our Network

The majority of staff based in Dubai work in Iraq or on Iraq based projects. However our Dubai based staff are only one part of our community. Since partners and families of staff members are not able to accompany them to Iraq, many Shell Iraq employees work on rotational arrangements, with families remaining in numerous home locations around the world.

We are using an online network to connect this worldwide community and we strongly encourage spouses and partners to register with the network.


The objectives of this network are

  • to create a shared identity for spouses and partners irrespective of their global location
  • to provide a platform to share timely information from Outpost Iraq
  • to support ongoing interactive communication between community members, to exchange experiences and answer common questions
