The World Bank collected the number of visits each country receives every year. The list below is based on their latest data. How does it work? A few caveats:
- The country the person visited had to be outside their residence.
- The visit has to be shorter than 12 months.
- The person wasn't visiting for work.
- The way some countries count visits vary so caution should be used in comparing across countries.
