Henley & Partners has analyzed the visa control of various countries and regions since 2006, and compiled this report based on the freedom that citizens of each country can enjoy when traveling abroad and international relations.


A Henley & Partners spokesperson pointed out that with globalization, visa restrictions have become an important tool for governments in border management. Visa exemption is an indicator of the relationship between countries and a country’s status in the international community.

Mainland China passports can only visit 44 countries visa-free, ranking 82nd; while passport holders from Hong Kong do not need to bother to apply for visas to visit 152 countries, ranking 14th.


The 10 best passports in the world:


*Finland, Sweden, and the United Kingdom tied for the first place (visa-free access to 173 countries)


*Denmark, Germany, Luxembourg, and the United States tied for second place (visa-free access to 172 countries)


*Belgium, Italy and the Netherlands tied for third place (visa-free access to 172 countries)

Australian visa holders can travel to 167 countries visa-free, ranking sixth with Greece and Singapore. However, the New Zealand passport, our close neighbor across the Tasman Sea, has the advantage of 6 visa-free countries, ranking fifth with Austria and Switzerland.
Approximately 188 countries and regions grant ordinary Australian passport holders visa-free or visa-on-arrival treatment, and 144 countries and regions (including those with visa-on-arrival free) can enter visa-free. Countries or regions that need to obtain a visa or require pre-arrangement of a visa before landing are not mentioned below
