A few days ago the State Department dropped the travel warning it had on Angola. Thus the number of countries with State Department Travel warnings has dropped to 25. This is once again at the number it was when I started tracking this statistic in October 2003. In between it peaked at 27 countries, where it stayed from December 2003 to March 2004. In April the State Department dropped the warning for Turkey. Now they have dropped the warning for Angola. So start planning your trips to those places now!
State Department Travel Warnings Over Time
A chart of how many countries world wide have US State Department Travel Warnings as that number varies over time. Serves as a proxy to chart roughly how dangerous the world is as the world situation changes over time. Perhaps not the best measure of that, but an interesting one perhaps.
