Get in

The Turkish border is closed. Al-Qamishli has an airport (at least in theory).

Stay safe

Al-Qamishli may be much safer than other parts of war-torn Syria, but travel there (and the rest of Rojava) is still highly inadvisable.

This region travel guide to Rojava is an outline and may need more content. It has a template, but there is not enough information present. If there are Cities and Other destinations listed, they may not all be at usable status or there may not be a valid regional structure and a "Get in" section describing all of the typical ways to get here.
