Note that some of these countries appear on the list of States which have extended a standing invitation, but that conducting an official visit requires scheduling of mutually-agreeable dates and final confirmation from the host country:
A list of countries who have issued standing invitations to all UN special procedures mandate holders is available via the UN Office for the High Commissioner for Human Rights. By extending a standing invitation, States announce that they will always accept requests to visit from all special procedures (however, specific dates still need to be mutually agreed upon). As of 15 March 2017, 117 Member States and 1 non-Member Observer State have extended a standing invitation to thematic special procedures.
A list of visits requested and conducted by special procedures mandate holders is available via OHCHR at this link. A table with percentages on regional representation relating to standing invitations is also available via OHCHR (PDF file).
