Data Story: Henley Passport Index 2022

  • Published
    23rd Feb, 2022

The Henley Passport Index is the original, authoritative ranking of all the world’s passports according to the number of destinations their holders can access without a prior visa. The index is based on exclusive data from the International Air Transport Association (IATA), the largest, most accurate travel information database. 

The index includes 199 different passports and 227 different destinations. Updated quarterly, the Henley Passport Index is considered the standard reference tool for the global citizen and sovereign states for assessing passport rank on the global mobility spectrum.

India has a score of 59. That is the number of destinations an Indian passport holder can travel to today, without pre-departure government approval. Passport rankings point towards the strength of diplomatic relations between countries. In the past decade, travel freedom has expanded vastly as a result of the rising number of bilateral visa-waiver programmes signed between different countries and unilateral decisions implemented by governments of some countries.

This data story aims to point out the passport rank of India and other countries.

Verifying, please be patient.
