According to a recent quarterly report from London-based global citizenship and residence advice business Henley & Partners, three Asian passports grant their holders more freedom to travel internationally than those from any other nation.
Japan’s citizens can travel to a record 193 countries without a visa or with one on request, just one more than Singapore and South Korea, whose nationals can freely visit 192.
Below the Asian top three, a glut of European countries sit near the top of the leaderboard. Germany and Spain are tied on 190 destinations, followed by Finland, Italy, and Luxembourg on 189.
Then there’s Austria, Denmark, Netherlands, and Sweden all tied in fifth place, while France, Ireland, Portugal, and the United Kingdom are at No. 6.
New Zealand and the United States make an appearance at No. 7, alongside Belgium, Norway, Switzerland, and the Czech Republic.
Afghan nationals sit at the bottom of the index once again and can access just 27 countries without requiring a visa in advance.
While the rankings do not mention Cameroon, MMI confirmed that Cameroonians can only visit 22 countries without visas.
As of January 2023, Cameroonian passport holders can travel visa-free to 22 countries and territories:
- Central African Republic
- Republic of the Congo
- Cook Islands
- Saint Vincent and the Grenadines
