most powerful passports in the world

Which are the most powerful passports in the world? How powerful can a passport be? It is determined by the number of countries their owners can travel to visa-free. In 2021 Japan’s passport is the most powerful in the world, with its possessors accessing over 190 countries in the world, totally visa-free. They are followed by a Singapore passport at 189 countries. French passport comes third at 188 countries.

The Henley Passport Index refreshed its Global Mobility Summary for the 21st century’s third decade to consider the power of each nation’s passport. This year-long global ranking of the most powerful passports globally is dependent on the travel freedom of their citizens around the world. This passport index is based on the data collected from the International Air Transport Association (IATA), the world’s most comprehensive database of travel reports, and is backed up by vital in-house research. The basic logic is that the more nations a passport holder can travel to visa-free in other countries, the more powerful the passport is global. The ranking in this global directory, from most to least powerful, also gives an in-depth look at mobility trends around the world. It measures which countries one can visit without any other visa, as well as what type of visa one wants. The ranking further tries to assess how passports have evolved over the last 14 years, how they connect all over the world, and why one’s passport has the level of passage it does. The Henley Passport Index comprises 199 passports and 227 travel destinations around the world.

The list below is the top 100 most powerful passports in the world.
