According to the latest Henley Passport Index, India’s rank has slipped by six places from last year to 90, in the list of world’s most travel-friendly passports. The Index comes at a time when countries are easing travel rules for international visitors after almost two years since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Japan and Singapore were crowned joint first in the Henley Passport Index, which assesses the travel documents based on how many countries citizens can access without a visa, using data from the International Air Transport Association. While South Korea and Germany share the second position. For the third consecutive year, Japan has secured the top position. Meanwhile, Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Pakistan, and Yemen are among the least powerful. India shares the rank with Tajikistan and Burkina Faso.
