International countries open doors to beautiful destinations with surreal landscapes and provide the opportunity to explore diverse cultures and cuisines, and enjoy unique experiences. Countries possessing less or the least risks are easy and convenient to explore but travel diaries take a turn in places possessing risks for travellers. International SOS has recently revealed a list of countries that are considered the most dangerous and safest for travel enthusiasts in the new year.

Several factors and metrics come into action behind preparing the list of ranking nations from different parts of the world. The list of metrics includes risks regarding medical arrangements, global security, violence, crimes, and social unrest. Interestingly, the consultancy firm has included the effects of climate change as a risk-possessed factor as well for the first time.

International SOS shared an interactive risk map that focuses on countries all around the world and the level of risks they possess for visitors. Considering all the layers and factors of risks, it looks like many foreign countries are likely to be quite risky for travellers. The risks and their probable impacts vary in different countries. Not just travel plans, some situations might even lead to affect the business operations as well.
