Read Time:59 Seconds

January 5. Japan holds the “world’s most powerful passport” this year, according to Henly Passport Index (measured by visa free access). Global Citizen Solution’s Global Passport Index, employs a different ranking formula and ranks the U.S. passport as the most powerful.

The Portugal-based consultancy firm, Global Citizens, ranked the United States as the “world’s strongest passport” for 2022 based on investment, qualify of life and enhanced mobility indices, the latter of which is a key marker commonly used in ranking passports to determine how easy it is for a passport holder to access other countries.

Per the study, the U.S. placed fourth in investment opportunities, with a Gross National Income (GNI) of $66,080 and personal taxation of 37%. The investment opportunities ranking assesses a “country’s attractiveness as an investment opportunity for passport holders,” the study’s data consultants explained.

The U.S. ranked 23rd in quality-of-life measures, including those related to safety, presence of travel hubs, freedom, environmental performance and happiness in persuading the country as a “permanent/primary place of residence for expats, retirees or anyone seeking desirable living conditions abroad.”
