According to the data presented by “iJet Intelligent Risk Systems" and “Control Risks", consulting agencies in the field of security, the magazine “Forbes" has composed the rating of the world's most dangerous countries for tourists. Tourists are recommended to visit these countries accompanied by professional bodyguards or not to visit them at all.

While composing the rating, the agency “iJet" took into account such factors as the criminality rate, security services, civil disorders, terrorism, kidnapping and geopolitical stability in the country and gave it a grade from 1 to 5, where 1 is the lowest level of threat, and 5 - the highest level. The agency “Control Risks" estimates the degree of danger of a country as extremely high, high, middle, low and insignificant.

So, the top 10 of world's most dangerous countries for tourists is as follows:

1. Somali. Grade of “iJet": 5. Estimate of “Control Risks": extremely high level of threat to tourists’ safety and movement. Armed conflicts, kidnapping with the purpose of getting ransom, pirates’ attacks and mines are among the dangers waiting for travelers who arrive in this country.

2. Iraq. Grade of “iJet": 5. Estimate of “Control Risks": extremely high level of threat to tourists’ safety and movement. There is a risk of terrorist attacks. The most dangerous regions of the country are Baghdad, the territory from Tikrit in the north to Hilla in the south, from Ramadi in the west to Mandali in the east.

3. Afghanistan. Grade of “iJet": 5. Estimate of “Control Risks": extremely high level of threat to tourists’ safety and movement. There is a risk of terrorist attacks. Terrorist attacks occur not only in Kabul, but in other towns of the country.

4. Haiti. Grade of “iJet": 5. Estimate of “Control Risks": high level of threat to tourists’ safety and movement; extremely high level of threat to movement in Port-o-Prince. Despite the democratic parliament and president elections that took place in February 2006, you may easily obtain fire-arms in Haiti; corruption flourishes among police force; and the system of justice is inefficient.

5. Pakistan. Grade of “iJet": 5. Estimate of “Control Risks": high level of threat to tourists’ safety; there is a risk of terrorist attacks; high level of threat to movement in Karachi and Baluchistan. It is worth mentioning that Benazir Bhutto, the former Prime Minister, was killed in December, 2007.

6. Sudan. Grade of “iJet": 5. Estimate of “Control Risks": extremely high level of threat to tourists’ safety and movement in Darfur; high level of threat to tourists’ safety and movement in south districts of Sudan, border districts at frontier with Ethiopia and Eritrea.

7. The Democratic Republic of Congo. Grade of “iJet": 5. Estimate of “Control Risks": high level of threat to tourists’ safety and movement - extremely high level of threat to tourists’ safety and movement in the region of Ituri.

8. Lebanon. Grade of “iJet": 5. Estimate of “Control Risks": high level of threat to tourists’ safety, medium level of threat to movement throughout the country, medium level of threat of terrorist attacks.

9. Zimbabwe. Grade of “iJet": 5. Estimate of “Control Risks": high level of threat to tourists’ safety, insignificant level of threat of terrorist attacks, medium level of threat to movement throughout the country.

10. Palestine. Grade of “iJet": the Gaza Strip - 5; West Coast - 4. Estimate of “Control Risks": high level of threat to tourists’ safety and movement.

This rating is not the first one that comprises countries where the travelers are in danger. Recently there was another rating of 12 most dangerous countries of the world that was based upon the threat of terrorism and the general security of travel.
