Alphabetical List

The Travelers’ Century Club’s official list of countries and territories is shown below in alphabetical order, a total of 327 as of Jan. 1, 2018. Although some are not actually countries in their own right, they have been included because they are removed from the parent country (see the Territory Status page for detailed criteria). After consideration as to how long one must have stayed in a country or territory to qualify, it was decided that even the shortest visit would suffice — even if only a port-of-call, or a plane fuel stop. This greatly widens the field and will give the traveler a better chance to qualify for one of the most unusual clubs in the world. Anyone who has visited 100 or more of the places listed below is eligible to join. Note: Alternate/older country or territory names and geographic subdivisions are cross-referenced in italics. The current list appears in standard type. Click TCC Countries & Territories to view the list by continent or region.
