    India and US Are More Dangerous for Foreigners Than Pakistan: Report

    • InterNations,’ the world’s largest online platform for expats with 3.5 million members.

      India was mentioned as the most dangerous South Asian country for foreign travelers and the fifth most dangerous country in the world for expats. The survey ranked a total of 64 countries from around the world.



      For context, no other South Asian country (including Pakistan) was ranked among the top 10. The report is based on interviews and remarks of expats and tourists that visited the countries.

      One of the Australian expats reviewed that she felt constantly insecure and hated “hardline politics… the social tensions and the very bad pollution” in India.

      Another Canadian expat explained how she felt like an outsider even after working for years in the country.

      People stare at me, take my photo, talk to me horribly, try to cheat me, etc. because they assume that I am a rich tourist. I also have faced severe sexual harassment from local men to the point that I now carry pepper spray everywhere.

      The survey ranked Brazil as the most dangerous country for travelers. Other prominent countries in the top-2o list are South Africa, Turkey, United Kingdom, Italy, United States, and Egypt.

      Here’s the complete list:
      1. Brazil
      2. South Africa
      3. Nigeria
      4. Argentina
      5. India
      6. Peru
      7. Kenya

    UK has a lot of racist people and London is notorious for knife attacks. Italy has pickpockets and thugs.

    Well if you get accompanied by @Michael Corleone you'd be spared by petty criminals, though i'd stay wary of tattaglia crime family..

    It's focused more on street crimes and militia. That I know.

    Kuwait, however, I do not understand. I think their methods might be flawed.

    But USA, Italy and UK have a lot more street crime than Pakistan, I think.

    I know about Brazil,Nigeria, Colombia & south Africa, they are very dangerous. Had heard stories personally by those who actually went there. India is 5th, I thought would be 1st or 2nd but we all know about it. Italy, Turkeye, US, UK? I don't think so.

    Foreigners only come in those country where there is huge money earning opportunity,security is secondary thing,no one will want to migrate to country with less earning oppurtunities that is why u.s is still top preference for immigrants

    because you understand that in reality we are not as safe as America, but we are getting better and in some ways we are doing better what's good for Pakistan than Americans . I hope America solve its problems before i come over there , I don't want to leave one war torn country to step into another . ( Of course Different kinds of war )

    Now that is one stupid survey, India is worse compared to Afghanistan? Oh come on. I am ready to take a dump at Indians every chance I get, but this survey is as idiotic as India media and military.

    It has some racist people and yes knife crime is a problem among some social groups. Overall the U.K. has some of the lowest crime figures in the world.
    Here is the latest crime index as of 2019, the list is accurate in places but outright rubbish in elsewhere.

    https://www.numbeo.com/crime/rankings_by_country.jsp

    U.K. rank 59.

    Yes but that’s what I’m looking at street crime and sites that monitor this do not agree with the countries I mentioned, Kuwait and Indonesia! Come on...
    The U.K. and the US overall also have low street crime rates, it’s in certain areas.
