On official business:
A look at Secretary of State travel
Since the fall of the Berlin Wall, nearly two dozen new countries have emerged, adding to the travel burden of the chief U.S. diplomat. Here’s a complete list of each country that merited a visit — and how many times each Secretary visited. The top number of visits to each country is in bold.
- 1 visit
- 2 to 5
- 6 to 10
- 11 to 15
NOTE: Palestinian territorities are listed as a country in State Department records. Where possible, The Washington Post has corrected mistakes in the data, such as the listing of some travel to Russia originally listed under Serbia. Clinton's 2012 travel was tabulated using data in a different section of the State Department website. Refueling stops were not counted.
