Being a bit off my advice-focused topics today I would like to mention about something more light-hearted. I have found an interesting ranking that compares access to visa-free countries based on holder’s passport. The ranking prepared by global consulting firm Henley & Partners have analyzed 94 countries and ranked them based on the freedom of travel for their citizens. Not only does it compare international visa relations between countries but also show a country’s status globally.
What are the results?
On top of the ranking there are Finland, Germany, Sweden, US and UK whose nationals are able to travel visa-free to 174 countries. Obviously that refers to just tourist-related travel, not for work.
Australia ranks a bit lower on 7th place with 168 countries.
On the other hand, Iraq and Afghanistan are those ranked at the ranking’s bottom (31 and 28 visa-free countries respectively).
