Is the road, border or area open and accessible to foreigners? Is there danger?

Здравейте! Как сте?
I will continue in English, since this is the official language of the site.
I wanted to ride a similar route in 2020, but from Kazakhstan, Alma-Ata. I couldn't do it because it's very difficult to get visas for Iraq and Saudi Arabia. Perhaps you, as a citizen of the European Union, will be able to do this. You can see my adventures on this issue here.https://roadstravel.ru/kazakhstan-emirates-trip/
And in the UAE and Oman, I drove my car when I lived there in 2002-2004. There are some videos about driving in these countries here. https://roadstravel.ru/эмираты/
And then I went to live in Bulgaria, Sofia. But that's a completely different story...)))
Всичко хубаво!

Not only do I understand your Russian well, I easily understand Bulgarian too. Като куче - всичко разбирам, не говорим. )) Be sure to let me know how your business progresses. If you can go, say hello to my daughter, she lives in Dubai, but she remembers Sophia (площад Журналист) very well. ))

Ще пиша за подготовката.Запланували сме пътуването за октомври.Ще трябва да подготвим много визи,да разберем как е пътуването и има ли ограничения за пътуване със собствен автомобил.През 2018 ходихме в Иран със собствен автомобил и нямаше проблем.Бяхме си изкарали карнет дьо пасаж и всичко беше наред.Изкарахме си и международни книжки.Надявам се с тоя карнет да можем да пътуваме и в тия държави,които сме си набелязали сега.Ако някой е пътувал с кола, може да сподели.Ще ни бъде от полза всяка информация.

Dear Sonja,

if you enter Iraq from Turkey, you will enter the Kurdish part of Iraq.
At the border, you will get a Kurdish Visa on arrival.
With this Visa, you can not drive into the non-Kurdish part of Iraq.
There is currently no possibility to get a real Iraq Visa on Arrival at the Turkish-Iraq border.

Peter, you are right.
I was in Iraqi Kurdistan with my camper and I liked it very much, but impossible to go to Baghdad, Mosul and so on.

Благодаря за информацията.Ще е жалко,ако не можем да посетим и другата част на Ирак, но все пак ако можем да стигнем до Кувейт,Саудитска арабия и другите държави, ще е добре.
