The Henley Passport Index (HPI) is a global ranking of countries according to the travel freedom enjoyed by the holders of that country’s ordinary passport for its citizens. Initially it started in 2006 as Henley & Partners Visa Restrictions Index (HVRI) but it was modified and renamed in January 2018.
HPI ranks passports according to how many destinations can be reached using a particular country’s ordinary passport without a visa. The ranking includes a total of 199 passports in its survey, against 227 travel destinations in the world, which are countries, territories, and micro-states.
Here are the current standings of the top 10 best passports in the world and how many countries they can enter visa-free:
I note that my native country; Dominica, is number 32. Which makes me think to myself why the heck is the UK so far up? Number 6 you know!
I actually still can’t believe that the UK is so high up! FYI (in case you want to know) Afghanistan is the lowest ranked passport to hold with only 26 visa-free entries for the passport holders. (Personally I think predjudice and discrimination is at play here but let me keep my fingers shut)
