Each country is marked either as low, medium or high risk on these categories – medical, security and road safety.

Much of Russia, Middle East and Southeast Asia were marked high-risk on road traffic accidents while Kosovo, Russia and Ukraine were given a medium-risk rating. On the bright side, most parts of Europe, US, Canada, Japan, New Zealand and Australia were marked low-risk and were given a clean chit on health standards.
