The Henley Passport Index recently announced the latest quarterly ranking of the world’s strongest passports: Japan ranked first, Singapore ranked second, and Malaysia ranked 14th. According to reports, the passports held by Asians can still enter the most countries, while Japan is the first to enjoy visa-free or visa-on-the-go treatment at 191 destinations worldwide; Singapore can go to 190 destinations in second place. The third place is South Korea and Germany, which can also go to 189 destinations.
Malaysia can go to 178 destinations, ranking 14th as well as Liechtenstein.
Although the US passport ranks seventh, the United States has been severely affected by the New Coronary Pneumonia epidemic. After being excluded by the European Union from the countries permitted to enter last week, the degree of freedom of travel with a US passport has fallen to the same as that of 25 Mexico. The world’s American passport is no longer so valuable.
