This is now the world’s most powerful passport for travel freedom

Japan has the strongest passport in the world according to new Henley & Partners ranking

The Philippine passport ranked 75th in the latest world's most powerful passport list according to a global ranking body.

Germany, another country to hold the top spot in previous years, is now in third place alongside South Korea and France.

Holders of the new top passport in the rankings, Japan, can now travel to 190 countries and territories without making any prior visa arrangements.

There were seven Frenchmen named on the list after helping Les Bleus win their second World Cup in Russian Federation this summer. In total 30 nominees will be announced, with the ceremony scheduled for 3 December.


"The total score for each passport is equal to the number of destinations for which no visa is required".

Previously, both Singapore and Japan had access to 189 countries and shared top place.

This places Lebanon as 100th down the list alongside Libya, Bangladesh, and South Sudan, dropping three places from previous year out of 106 countries. With stagnant outbound visa activity compared to Asian high-performers such as Japan, Singapore, and South Korea, it seems increasingly unlikely that the United States and the United Kingdom will regain the number 1 spot they jointly held in 2015.

It is updated regularly to reflect changes in the number of visa-waiver agreements signed between countries. While Chinese nationals got access to two new areas visa-free or visa-on-arrival, it still slide down tow places to just 71st.

The Henley Passport Index ranking is based on exclusive data from the International Air Transport Association, which has the world's largest database of travel information. This is still an impressive 14-place improvement over the position that China held at the start of 2017.

Looking ahead, the most dramatic climb on the Henley Passport Index might come from Kosovo, which officially met all the criteria for visa-liberalization with the EU in July and is now in discussions with the European Council. Thailand ended up at No.68 and China at No.71, with at the bottom Afghanistan and Iraq, with only 30 visa waivers each, the Liberty Times reported. Newcomer Moldova, due to launch its CBI program in November, climbed 20 places since 2008.

Apple releases iOS 12.0.1 to fix charging and WiFi bugs
Since a full restore fixed the LTE and Wi-Fi bugs , it seems plausible that iOS 12.0.1 does as well. Finally, the update will fix a small issue that prevented some subtitles appearing in videos.


The 2018 Henley Passport Index showed that the Philippine passport has visa-free access to only 66 destinations.
