Get in[edit]

Get out[edit]

Tulkarm is not an ordinary tourist destination on the West Bank. Using one of the nearby checkpoints to enter Israel will give you problems with the IDF. Taybeh checkpoint is only for Palestinian citizens, and the Djubara-checkpoint requires a vehicle with Israeli license plates. Asking politely for a ride across the border will usually not be a problem.

Anyhow, taking a shared taxi to Ramallah and then to Jerusalem trough Qalandiya checkpoint is adviced. This will make the transportation much more comfortable.
