List of countries and territories by land borders

  (Redirected from Land borders)
Countries without a land border

This is a list of countries and territories by land borders.[1] The number of unique land borders of each country or territory is indicated as well the names of its neighboring countries and territories. The length of each land border is included, as is the total length of each country's and territory's land borders.

Countries or territories that are connected only by bridges or other man-made causeways are not considered to have land borders. However, borders along lakes, rivers, and other internal waters are considered land borders for the purposes of this article. Footnotes are included to provide clarity regarding the status of certain countries and territories.
