Antigua & Barbuda: only when the country was a part of the British Leeward Islands; no president has returned since it became independent.
Belarus: includes one visit to the country while it was a part of the Soviet Union.
Canada: includes Franklin D. Roosevelt's visits to Newfoundland, before it joined Canada in 1949 (one was part of a wider tour of Canada, while one visit was a holiday to Newfoundland only).
Croatia: includes Nixon's trip to Zagreb while Croatia was a part of Yugoslavia.
Czechia: includes George H. W. Bush's visit to Prague while it was a part of Czechoslovakia.

The majority of the information came from the individual entries for each president on the linked source. Data for President Trump is incomplete on the Department of State website, therefore a number of other sources have been used to compile this information.
