There are few things more enjoyable and satisfying than travel and a passport from a country in good standing globally is a very handy thing. It allows its holder to cross borders without going through the stress and bureaucracy that accompanies the visa application. A good passport empowers individuals to essentially embody global citizenship.
Global citizenship and residence advisory firm Henley & Partners use data from the International Air Transport Association to determine how many destinations passport holders in every country can access without first obtaining a visa. The index is updated in real-time throughout the year to reflect visa-policy changes and recently, the firm released its quarterly report on the world’s most desirable passports.
