These Are The Worst & Best Passports To Travel The World


Do you know which are the best passports to travel the world? According to a new research by London-based global citizenship and resident consultancy business Henley & Partners, the global disparity in travel freedoms has never been larger.

Since 2006, the firm’s Henley Passport Index, which is based on unique data from the International Air Transport Association, has been routinely tracking the world’s most travel-friendly passports.

As per the report, the growing travel obstacles imposed during the Covid pandemic’s first 18 months have resulted in the largest worldwide mobility gap in the index’s 16-year history.

In terms of travel freedom, Afghanistan possesses the world’s weakest passport. The HPI ranks Afghanistan 116th out of 180 countries.

An Afghan passport enables the holder to access just 26 countries and territories without first obtaining a visa. Many of them still need travellers to apply for a visa on arrival.

In the HPI rankings, Iraqi passports are just slightly higher than those issued by Afghanistan, enabling admission to 28 locations without a visa prior to the journey.

Syria, Pakistan, and Yemen round out the bottom five in terms of visa-free destinations in 2021, with 29, 31, and 33 visa-free destinations, respectively.
