How Powerful Is Your Passport? Filipinos Can Enter 66 Territories Visa-Free

Two Asian countries are in the top spot in the Henley Passport Index.

The Philippine passport ranked 82 out of 116, with visa-free entry allowed in 66 territories, according to a global passport index.

The Henley Passport Index, a residence and citizenship planning firm in the U.S., ranks passports based on their visa-free score, or the total number of countries that specific passport can be granted entry without the need to present additional documents or permits.

The Philippines fell down five spots from its rank of 77 in January of this year. Its score remains the same at 66. Some of the countries that Philippine passport holders could visit visa-free in 2020 included Morocco, Fiji, Costa Rica, and Maldives.

Still in first place with a visa-free score of 193 is Japan, followed by Singapore in second place with a score of 192.

Sharing third place are Germany and South Korea with a score of 191, with fourth place saved for Finland, Italy, Luxembourg, and Spain with a score of 190.


Austria and Denmark round up the Top 5 with a score of 189.

Singapore and South Korea are the only two other Asian countries to make the Top 10.
