Passports Ranking System: How It Works
A passport’s ranking is determined by the degree of freedom of movement it provides; the more countries a traveler can enter without a visa, the more powerful their passport is. The most highly ranked passports in the world are those that provide the most “visa-free” access for their holders; the more visa-free access a passport allows, the higher its rank relative to all other extant passports.
VisaIndex assesses a passport’s rank by quantifying the number of countries a holder may enter without a visa. We evaluate each passport according to the degree of access it provides by calculating the number of countries that a passport holder can enter Visa-Free, Visa-On-Arrival, and Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA).
In addition to utilizing all of this information to assess passport rank, we also transparently make it available to you: the traveler. While learning the rank of a passport, you can also view the data behind its respective position relative to other countries. For each passport, we list the number of countries to which passport holders enjoy the following access:
B. Visa-on arrival
In addition to listing the above benefits of a passport (visa-free access, etc.), we also list its “Visa Required” countries (i.e. the countries that require passport-holders obtain a visa in advance) including countries that require Visa-Online application.
At VisaIndex, we envision a world in which all travelers have instant access to a reliable source for passports ranking.
