How to get to | Afghanistan

This is part of a series of blog entries on how to get to countries and places. Here is a link to the index. I plan to eventually cover every country and some other places. If you have a request for a particular country or place please use the email me link at top right, or leave a comment.

There are buses to Afghanistan from Mashhad in Iran. Taxis operate to the border on both sides with Pakistan (the border itself is sometimes closed) and also Tajikistan and Turkmenistan. Airlines flying to Kabul include:
  • Star Alliance - none
  • Oneworld - none
  • Sky Team - none
  • Other selected - Ariana Afghan Airlines, Kam Air, Pamir, Safi, Indian, Pakistan

TIP Delhi and Dubai have the most flight options to Afghanistan.

TIP Border rules and travel options can change quickly due to safety and political concerns. Allow sufficient flexibility in your plans to cope with last minute changes.
