New Zealand can no longer boast of having the strongest passport in the world, and this highest honor is given back to Japan in the new global rankings.
Henley and Partners, a citizen company that regularly ranks passports based on freedom of travel, announced the first Henry Passport Index for 2021.
Although millions of people cannot go abroad due to the epidemic, including Australia, this index is still based on the number of visa-free countries to rank passports.
New Zealand ranked first in the previous quarter, followed by Australia and 11 other countries in second place.
This time Japan returned to number one, with 191 visa-free countries.This is the third time Japan has ranked first. It was previously ranked first alone or together with Singapore.
Singapore ranked second with 190 visa-free countries, and South Korea and Germany ranked third with 3.
New Zealand ranks seventh with 7 visa-free countries, Australia ranks eighth, and Malta, Greece and the Czech Republic, with 185 visa-free countries.
