All road links with Iraq, and therefore through to the Syrian Arab Republic and Jordan, are advised against due to political instability within Iraq. It is also wise to check with the embassy before considering travelling to Lebanon.

There are bus services between Kuwait City and Cairo (Egypt), via Aqaba in Jordan and Nuweiba in Egypt. Buses also operate to Dammam in Saudi Arabia. The main land route into Saudi Arabia is Beirut-Damascus-Amman-Kuwait, which follows the Trans-Arabian Pipeline (TAP line) through Saudi Arabia.
