By plane

 Kabul International Airport

By car

There are a number of roads into Afghanistan:

  • From Peshawar, Pakistan via the Khyber Pass to Jalalabad, in the East.
  • From Quetta, Pakistan to Kandahar, in the South.
  • From Mashad, Iran to Herat, in the West.
  • From Uzbekistan to Mazar-e Sharif, in the North.
  • From Tajikistan to Konduz, in the North-West.
As of mid-2009, none of these routes can be considered safe. The Khyber and the Quetta to Kandahar route are particularly dangerous.

By bus

Buses run regularly between Jalalabad and Peshawar, Pakistan. Also, between Herat and Mashad, Iran. Afghani buses are thouroughly checked by Iranian border police for possible drugs, so expect delays.
