New Zealand passport ranked in the Top 10

July 3, 2019

The New Zealand passport has been named in the world’s top ten most powerful. 

The Kiwi passport has come in at number nine, alongside Australia, Iceland and Lithuania, in the latest Henley Passport Index.

The top spot was taken by Japan and Singapore. Finland, Germany and South Korea shared the second spot. 

The passports were ranked on how many places they had Visa-free access to. 

At the moment the New Zealand passport has access to 180 countries, with Japan and Singapore able to visit 189. 

At the other end of the scale the three weakest passports were Afghanistan, Iran and Syria. They all had Visa-free access to fewer than 30 countries. 

Last year the New Zealand passport was ranked at number eight with access to 182 countries.
