Yearly, the Henley Passport Index measures the world’s most travel-friendly passports, just released the latest report.

As usual, Asian citizens continue to have the most powerful documents, with Japan topping the list. Visa-free or visa-on-arrival giving access to 191 destinations around the world.

Since covid-19 numbers are still on the rise in the United Kingdom and EU countries traditionally ruled the roost, this might be explained as to why they are not on the list for this year.

“Just a year ago, all indications were that the rates of global mobility would continue to rise, that travel freedom would increase, and those holders of powerful passports would enjoy more access than ever before,” says Christian H. Kaelin, chair of Henley & Partners and inventor of the passport index concept.

The best passports to hold in 2021 are:

  1. Japan (191 destinations)
