Powerful Passports 2021: This country has the world’s most powerful passport, a shock to India in the list

If an Olympics is conducted among the passports of the world, then Japan will leave everyone behind. According to the ‘Henley Passport Index’, the Japanese passport is the most powerful passport of 2021. This organization has been continuously releasing the ranking of ‘World Most Travel Friendly Passport’ since 2006. India has suffered a big loss in the rankings this year.

According to ‘Henley & Partners’, the Japanese passport allows visa-free or visa-on-arrival access to 193 countries in the world. Japan is at the top of the list with an excellent visa-free score of 193. It has also been said in the report that due to the corona virus crisis, very few people have traveled this year. In the first three months of 2021, the condition of tourism has been very bad all over the world.

Singapore is second in this list after Japan, whose passport allows visa on arrival and visa free access to 192 countries. South Korea and Germany are in third place with 191 visa free score.

Finland, Italy, Luxembourg and Spain are in fourth place. The visa free score of all these countries is 190. If seen from the point of view of Corona crisis, then this is a big setback for America and Britain. Despite the fast-paced vaccination program, America and Britain are in seventh place. However, the UK and US have gained a notch as compared to last time.
