Which countries have the most powerful passports in the world? When we talk about the power of a passport, we refer to the number of countries that can be visited with it without the need for a prior visa. This means that, if your passport allows it, you will be free to visit a country without having to do any previous paperwork.
The Henley Passport Index is a ranking that includes all passports in the world according to the number of destinations that their holders can access without the need for a prior visa.
The ranking is based on data from the International Air Transport Association (IATA), which maintains the world’s largest and most accurate database of travel information, and is improved with ongoing research from the Henley & Partners Research Department.
