Henley Passport Index UPSC NOTE

 


Henley Passport Index

  • The Henley Passport Index is the ranking of all the world’s passports according to the number of destinations their holders can access without a prior visa. 

  • The index includes 199 passports and 227 travel destinations.

  • The index is brought out by Henley and Partners.

  • Singapore, which is now officially the most powerful passport in the world, with its citizens able to visit 192 travel destinations out of 227 around the world visa-free.

  • Germany, Italy, and Spain occupied the second place. 

  • Alongside Japan at the third position are Austria, Finland, France, Luxembourg, South Korea, and Sweden.

  • Japan, which occupied the top position on the Henley Passport Index for five years, dropped to the third place.

  • The U.K. climbed two places to occupy the fourth place, while the U.S. continued its decade-long slide down the index, dropping two places to the eighth spot. 

  • Henley & Partners also conducted an exclusive new research resulting in the Henley Openness Index which measures how many nations does a country allow visa-free access to.

  • At the bottom of the Index were four countries for scoring zero for not permitting visa-free access for any passport — namely, Afghanistan, North Korea, Papua New Guinea, and Turkmenistan.
