You have two major choices via Israel and via Jordan.
Travel via Israel
The main checkpoint from Israel (via Jeruslem) is Qalandia near Ramallah. At checkpoints you will be dealing with IDF (Israel Defense Forces) soldiers. Delays may occur at checkpoints unexpectedly, especially if there has been recent violence or political events.
