Muscat: SOS International Consulting has ranked the Sultanate among the safest and least risky travel destinations in the world, according to the World Travel Risk Map for 2021, which it recently issued.
The map was prepared based on an assessment of security levels in countries on the basis of the threat posed by political violence including terrorism, rebellion, politically motivated unrest, war, social unrest, including sectarian, and ethnic violence, in addition to violent crimes and petty crimes.
The quality of transport infrastructure, the effectiveness of security and emergency services and exposure to natural disasters were also taken into consideration.
The list of least-risk countries and the safest countries to travel alongside the Sultanate included countries such as Kuwait, Qatar, the Emirates, the United States, European countries and Canada.
