Nice read, thanks.

Interesting how difficult travelling to Somalia is, I thought it would be easy due to anarchy.

It is a pretty interesting list. Some of those I suspected like Saudi Arabia or Chad, but not necessarily a place like Angola.

It would be interesting to see this list if the person were coming from a developing country. For example, if you are Israeli there are certain countries you would not even be able to enter.

I know someone who worked in Angola for an Israeli company and it seemed that the process of extending the visa was more complicated than in other countries.

How ugly for Chad. You would think such an impoverished country could use the tourist dollars, but nope

I find it hard to take the article seriously if he thought getting a visa for Russia was difficult.

Visiting US is hard but the author is probably from America and can't notice it.

I'm hoping Kongo is easy though or Kenya and nearby countries.

How is visiting the US hard?
For some countries, maybe. But not for the majority of tourists.

That holds true for every country. Depending where a person is from, it can be more or less difficult to get into a specific country.

For some people, visiting the US is easy, for others it is very difficult and quite possibly will never happen.

Some of my family members have never been granted a visa to the US, it is possible they never will, so the US would be on their list of "hardest places to get into."

Oh no it is very hard. If you are Russian it is even more difficult than for Americans to visit Russia. Tons of paperwork. Many countries have instituted reciprocal rules for VISAS for Americans, so all of the people complaining about needing a VISA to enter Brazil or whatever, just remember that their citizens have to go through the same thing

If it was up to me, I would lift VISA restrictions on all countries in Eastern Europe as well as South America. Those countries pose no harm to the US
