List of Most Powerful and Weakest Passports – Which Category Does Your Passport Fall Into?

Henley passport index
The Henley Passport Index recently released the global passport ranking for 2024, and it might shock you to find out which countries hold the strongest passports and which countries hold the weakest passports.

For every traveller, one of the most valuable assets they hold is their passport. If you’re a holder of a strong passport, travel and leisure in other countries becomes that much easier. But if you have a weak passport, travel documents become the most nerve-wracking part of your journey. 

The top spots for the strongest passport according to the Henley Passport Index are:

  1. France
  2. Germany
  3. Italy
  4. Japan
  5. Singapore
  6. Spain
  7. Finland
  8. South Korea
  9. Sweden
  10. Austria

For many, it comes as a shock that the US is not in the top 10 of the Henley Passport Index as many have come to see the US as a power nation that has it all – from the American dream to the must-try spots for travellers looking for something new and exciting. Another interesting factor about the Henley Passport Index is that out of the first 10 countries, 06 countries share the first place with access to 194 different countries and 03 countries share second place with access to 193 countries.

With access to 194 different countries, the top spot holders can travel visa-free to most destinations across the world. What’s better is that this is the first time since the index was introduced that six countries share the first place, meaning that global travel is becoming more accessible with each passing year. That’s good news for travellers!

At the bottom of the list, with access to between 35 to 28 countries without visas are:

  1. Yemen
  2. Pakistan
  3. Iraq
  4. Syria
  5. Afghanistan

Some other popular destinations that you might be curious about are the US passport which ranks at 7th pace in the index with cisa-free travel to 188, sharing the spot with Hungary and Canada.

The Maldivian passport took 58th place with access to 94 different countries and India ranked at 80th place in the index with visa-free travel to 62 different countries. 

With each year’s index showing a broader possibility of visa-free travel for nations, travellers from countries that hold weaker passports still have hope for a broader range of travel in the future! It’s time for a passport renewal and check which destinations you can book a flight to, visa-free!
