The latest update of the Henley Index of global passports based on data from the International Air Transport Association (IATA) has been published.
This update, corresponding to January 2023, once again places the Spanish passport as the third most valuable passport worldwide, tied with the German passport and only behind those of Singapore and South Korea, which tie for second place in the ranking, and the Japanese passport, which leads this table for the fifth consecutive year. The Portuguese passport is in sixth place.
According to the published data, Japanese citizens have visa-free access to a total of 193 destinations worldwide out of a possible 227. The Spanish passport allows visa-free access to 190 world destinations and the Portuguese passport to 187 countries.
The list is closed by the passports of Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan, which for their part remain firmly at the bottom of the index, with a total score of only 27 destinations accessible without a visa. This is 166 fewer visa-free destinations than Japan, representing the largest global mobility gap in the 18-year history of this index.
