Travel is a very personal experience, and everyone has their tastes when it comes to it. Some love big cities, some prefer beaches, while others prefer woodlands. Some countries are better than others, but some countries are bad to visit.
Exercise Normal Precautions (Level 1), Increased Caution (Level 2), Rethink Travel (Level 3), or Do Not Travel (Level 4). These recommendations are based on particular concerns, such as crime, terrorism, civil unrest, health hazards, and natural catastrophes, which the State Department designates.
Level 4 travel warnings now cover 12 nations across the globe. These are the most dangerous nations to visit right now, according to the U.S. State Department. Countries in this group are:
- North Korea
- South Sudan
On January 27, 2017, the United States imposed a travel restriction on North Korea to the Central African Republic. In 2020, the prohibition was projected to be in force.
A week after Otto Warmbier returned to America from North Korea in a coma, the U.S. government imposed a travel restriction on North Korean citizens. A U.S. citizen would require a special passport issued by the United States government to go to North Korea.
As of October 28, 2019, Somalia’s travel warning is the most up-to-date. Several problems afflict Somalia, including piracy and other criminal activity, public health challenges; civil upheaval; and abduction.
When ships are hijacked off the coast of Somalia, particularly in the Horn of Africa, pirates are known to take the crew and passengers hostage in return for ransom.
Terrorists in Somalia are still planning bombs in popular tourist destinations, such as airports, seaports, hotels, and malls, where there are huge crowds and many Westerners.
Violence, civil unrest, kidnappings, and armed combat are all present in Syria. Nothing in Syria is immune from the ongoing conflict. Syria’s border disputes with Israel, Turkey, Iraq, Lebanon, and Jordan have posed a significant threat to the country’s security.

The United States considers Syria’s assistance to terrorist groups like ISIS and al-Nusrah to violate federal law. Americans and other Westerners are also in danger in Syria, where kidnappings have been commonplace since 2012.
Before departing for another country, review any travel warnings issued by the U.S. Department of State.
