Passports are our key to seeing the world, but not all passports are equal. Depending on your passport’s country of issuance, you might be able to visit just about every corner of the world without a hitch, or you might be drowning in visa applications.
For the past 16 years, The Henley Passport Index has been ranking the world’s passports according to the number of destinations their holders can access without a visa. Using data from the International Air Transport Association (IATA), the Henley Index looks at 199 passports and compares their ease of travel to 227 destinations. (Note that the index does not take temporary travel restriction into consideration for its ranking.)
