US Department of State has a list of Corrupt and Undemocratic Actors Report that includes individuals and companies that are sanctioned by the US, namely not allowed to enter in the US:

Foreign persons listed in this report shall have their visas revoked
immediately and any other valid visa or entry documentation will be
cancelled, absent an exception or national security interest waiver.

Similarly, the UK seems to have a similar section, the UK sanctions relating to global anti-corruption, the first sanctions being announced in 2021:

sanctions target 22 individuals involved in notorious corruption cases
in Russia, South Africa, South Sudan and throughout Latin America

I am wondering if there are other countries that have issued similar sanctions. I found this OECD document about the impact of the OECD Anti-Bribery Convention that seems to address a similar issue (my emphasis):

Impact of the OECD Anti-Bribery Convention: The Convention has changed
the rules of the game. It has increased the visibility of corruption
of foreign officials; it has brought bribery to the fore. Today, there
are more than 150 ongoing foreign bribery investigations.
Approximately 40 individuals and companies that committed foreign
bribery have been penalized
, in some cases with hefty multi-million
dollar fines.

However, it is not clear if these penalities also include individual country penalties similar to the ones issued by the US and UK (e.g. cancelled visas, not allowed to do business in the country).
