Come Travel the Safe World.

When traveling this year, the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) warn citizens that holidaying in Angola, Botswana, Central African Republic, Democratic Republic of Congo, Jamaica, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Swaziland and Zambia is not suggested. Nor should Australian's go to India due to the likeliness of being blown up in your pj's or kidnapped.

Travelers are also advised that their details will be given to US Immigration when entering and leaving the country. The risk level for the USA is still high, with the likelihood of finding black vans outside your hotel as you are raided by men in black masks who hold guns against your temple, and then detain you for a prolonged period being the number one form of attack.
