This page lists countries that regularly or admittedly apply surprising repressive laws to visiting foreigners, or egregiously violate the rights of people accused of crimes.

We do not try to mention all the repressive regimes that punish people for criticizing the regime in a serious way while there. There are too many of those to mention here, and you're not likely to do that without thinking about it. That sort of repression would not be such a surprise.

This page was not made through a systematic study. Some countries not listed may be worse than some countries that are listed.

Why risk a visit to these countries? Why spend any of your money there? Stay away!
