Henley unveils the 2019 index of African passports

(Ecofin Agency) - Henley & Partners published its 2019 passport index and, once again, the world’s top is dominated by Japan while there is no African country in the world’s top 10.

In Africa, the top 5 is dominated by Seychelles (27th  global rank), Mauritius (51st global rank), South Africa (53rd global rank), Botswana (82nd global rank) and Namibia (68th global rank). The bottom 5 is made of Ethiopia (96th global rank), Libya and South Sudan (97th global ranks), Sudan (99th global rank), Eritrea (100th global rank) and Somalia (103rd global rank).  

Let’s note that Equatorial Guinea progressed the most with three places gained in this ranking.

Henley Passport Index is an index of all the passports ranked according to the countries that welcome them without a visa. The data used in the ranking are compiled from the International Air Transport Association (IATA).
