SOUTH AFRICA: Travel Risk Map for 2018

International SOS and Control Risks have launched the Travel Risk Map 2018, Travel and Meetings Buyer reports.

The map is released each year to help companies better understand the risks in the market where they operate and travel.

It displays each country’s medical rating and travel security risk rating. The result is a comprehensive overview of risks by destination, highlighting organisations’ need for travel risk mitigation efforts.
