September 24, 2018 1:00 PM

For some people, a passport is a portal to the world. For others, it is a barrier to the travel freedom they seek. Where do you lie on the spectrum of mobility?

The Henley Passport Index is the most rigorous and sophisticated measure of global access. It goes beyond a simple ranking of passports to provide you with an in-depth picture of your travel freedom, including which countries you can access with which type of visa, how your passport has changed over the last 13 years, how your passport compares to other passports, why your passport has the level of access it does, and which additional passports would improve your mobility.

Even though the German passport was among the best-ranked ones last year, this year is not among the most powerful ones. Currently, it is on second place, right after Japan and Singapore, who share the first place. Their residents can travel to as many as 189 countries worldwide, while Germans can travel to 188 countries.

The third place is shared by Finland, France, Italy, South Korea, Spain, Sweden and Denmark whose residents can travel to 187 countries without visas.

On the fourth place is Austria, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, the United Kingdom and the United States, and their citizens can travel without visas to 186 countries worldwide.

The fifth place is shared by Belgium, Canada, Ireland and Switzerland, whose residents can travel to 185 countries around the world.

Bosnia and Herzegovina is on the 46th place, which is the best placement in the last three years, and the owners of BiH passports can travel to 118 countries without visas.

When it comes to the countries of the region, Slovenia is the best ranked and it is on the ninth place, followed by Croatia 16thand Serbia 36th.
