Myanmar Passport Ranking

The Myanmar passport ranking relative to other global passports is calculated by adding up the number of countries that allow Myanmar passport holders to enter without a visa (i.e. visa-free countries) and those that allow Myanmar passport holders to enter by obtaining a visa on arrival (i.e. visa-on-arrival countries) or an electronic travel authorization (eTA). There are currently a total of 16 Myanmar passport visa-free countries, 28 Myanmar visa-on-arrival countries, and 1 eTA destinations.

Altogether, Myanmar passport holders can enter a total of 45 destinations—either without a visa, through a visa on arrival, or via an eTA. As a result, the Myanmar passport ranks 98 in the world.

Separate from these Myanmar visa-free countries and visa-on-arrival countries, there are 184 additional destinations which Myanmar passport holders either need a physical visa to enter or an eVisa (i.e. visa required countries).
