The Henley Passport Index has released 2019 ranking of all the world’s passports.

The rank was according to the number of destinations their holders can access without a prior visa.

Although, Japan was number one in 2018, the country now shares the spot with Singapore.

Holders of Japan and Singapore passports can easily enter 190 countries.

“With a few notable exceptions, the latest rankings from the Henley Passport Index show that countries around the world increasingly view visa-openness as crucial to economic and social progress,” said Dr Christian H Kaelin, chairman of Henley & Partners and the creator of the passport index.

“Discussions of passport power and global mobility tend to focus on the benefits for the countries with the strongest passports.

“However, this latest unique research appears to confirm something that many of us already knew intuitively: that increased visa-openness benefits the entire global community, and not just the strongest countries.”
