In that case, this article is definitely for you as here we have provided an insight into countries not to visit in 2023 due to the current political curfew, unrest in war and terrorism, violence, security risk, and other petty issues that make the visit risky.
Global security and medical experts from the risk assessment company International SOS have created this year's "Travel Risk Map." Based on the threat presented, the index considers each country's degree of security.

Countries not to visit in 2023:

Afghanistan, Syria, Somalia, Mali, Iraq, and Ukraine are the nations with the most "severe risk" in terms of security for 2023. International Travellers have been a major target in these countries and pose threats and violent attacks by armed groups. Local law control has been at fault due to the current situation in these countries.

Mental health:

Not only security and medical categories were taken into consideration for the risk factors in countries to visit but also taken into account of mental health. According to mental health, the index counts anxiety, depression, eating disorders, and schizophrenia as mental health disorders.
Western European countries and most Scandinavia countries have mental issues between 15% to 17.5%, whereas in countries like Greenland, Spain, Australia, and New Zealand, the percentage is as high as 17.5% to 20%
According to the World Health Organization, 11% to 18% of the population suffers from one or more mental or drug use disorders, and mental health problems have been on the rise.

COVID-19 the culprit:

Though no particular causes are mentioned, COVID-19 may be somewhat to blame as the WHO reports that anxiety and depression increased by 25% globally in the first year of the pandemic.
According to a statement from Dr. Irene Lai, medical director of International SOS, organizations must concentrate on reducing the ongoing effects of mental health problems while travel and health risk are increasing in many areas.
He said, "Although other acute medical issues which may have a significant impact regularly arise, mental health problems remain in the background and cannot be overlooked."
