Following the Russian plane crash of October 31st 2015 where all 224 passengers and crew lost their lives, a new list has been released by the UK Foreign Office showing tourists which countries are most volatile and probably unsafe to travel to until things normalise. I would add that this list may also be relevant to people looking to take up employment in these countries.
The Independent, via Statistica, have provided a map which clearly marks out the countries that are deemed partly safe or unsafe.
In total, based on the map above, 18 countries are deemed as unsafe and these include the following: Afghanistan, Burundi, Central African Republic, Chad, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Guinea, Iraq, Libya, Mauritania, Niger, Palestinian territories, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Somaliland, South Sudan, Syria, Tunisia, Yemen.
On the other hand, parts of 45 countries are deemed partly unsafe to travel to and these include the following: Algeria, Angola, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bangladesh, Burkina Faso, Burma (Myanmar), Cambodia, Cameroon, Colombia, Djibouti, Ecuador, Egypt, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Georgia, Haiti, India, Iran, Israel, Ivory Coast, Japan, Jordan, Kenya, Kosovo, Lebanon, Madagascar, Malaysia, Mali, Nepal, Nigeria, Pakistan, Philippines, Republic of Congo, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Tajikistan, Thailand, Turkey, Uganda, Ukraine, Venezuela, Western Sahara.
