Last year was full of travel misery and COVID chaos. But in one ironic bright spot for the new year – Greece and Australia have ranked in the top ten most powerful passports in the world, according to the Henley Passport Index.

For 2021, Greece and Australia have both ranked 8th in the world, with an access score of 184.

In top place was Japan’s passport, with 191 access points. This was followed closely by Singapore in second place, and both Germany and South Korea in third.

The Henley Passport Index is the original ranking of all the world’s passports, according to the number of destinations their holders can access without a prior visa.

It looks at exclusive data from the International Air Transport Association (IATA), which maintains the world’s largest and most accurate database of travel information.
