Map That Shows Which Countries Are Most and Least Welcoming Of Foreigners


Now isn’t this an interesting map? This is from an old Washington Post article a year ago, but I’d be surprised if the sentiments abroad have changed much since then.  At a glance, it looks like countries with stricter governments are less welcoming of foreigners although Denmark, the world’s happiest country, is an outlier with that theory. I wonder how the Danish happiness factors into their view of foreigners?  On the other hand, I can’t say I’m surprised about Russia’s bright red status below.  I definitely did not feel welcomed when I visited.

Do the results on the map surprise you or is it consistent with your experiences abroad?
