Ukraine ranks 38th in the global ranking of passports. Between the first and the last place – the biggest for all time of conversation
In the global rating of passports attractiveness for 2021, which make up the consulting company Henley & Partners, Ukraine has improved its position by three steps and is ranked 38th, between Paraguay and Serbia.
About this have to in the report “Passport Index-2021”, published on October 5.
The leaders of the rating have not changed since 2020 – in Japan and Singapore (first place), Germany and South Korea (second place) and Finland, Italy and Luxembourg (third place). Holders of these passports can travel freely in 189 countries or more.
Instead, in the lowest ranking, in 199th place, is Afghanistan, citizens who can travel without a visa to only 26 countries. Prices are 166 lower than the leaders of the rating, which, as determined by Henley & Partners, is the maximum range during the entire observation period.
The compilers of the ratings determine that there is a significant gap in mobility between developed and developing countries. For example, Japan almost completely forbids foreigners to come to it, and Germany does not allow citizens to 100 countries.
On the other hand, Egypt, which has a 97-digit rating, does not actually limit itself to visitors from other countries. The situation is similar with Kenya, which is ranked 77th and has no entry restrictions for foreigners.
Henley & Partners believes that the COVID-19 pandemic is only widening the gap between the rich and neighboring countries in the context of unavailability of travel. This could affect the recovery of the global economy after the pandemic, given there.
What is this rating?
Other passports Henley is a global ranking of countries that measures the degree of freedom of view of the world by its citizens. It has been created since 2005 by the international consulting company Henley & Partners. Previously, the rating was annual, but from 2018 it was decided to update the indicators quarterly. The general company evaluates the application of documents from 199 countries.
To form the ranking, Henley & Partners uses the closure of the Timatic International Civil Transport Association database, which collects data on passport, visa and other requirements of each country and territory. The countries with whose passports citizens get the most obstacles when traveling, get the lowest scores in the index, and vice versa.
