Somaliland:Mapped; Where in the world is safe for Britons?
See where the Foreign Office says is safe to travel to this summer – and where is not
The Foreign Office now advises against travel to all or parts of more than 60 nations around the world.
The vast majority are in Africa and the Middle East, with Tunisia being the most recent addition earlier this month.
Most of Iran, however, is no longer off-limits. The Foreign Office ruled last week that the country is now safe to visit.

Travel to these countries is not impossible – indeed, tour operators such as Intrepid and Hinterland still offer tours to Afghanistan – but insurance can be difficult to come by.
A further 43 territories are deemed partly off-limits. They include Russia, Ukraine, Turkey, Thailand, Malaysia, Kenya, India, Egypt, Myanmar, Colombia and Bangladesh.
For full details of which parts of each country are deemed unsafe, see the Foreign Office website.
