The Vietnamese passport currently ranks 87th on the list of the world’s most powerful passports in 2024, falling five notches compared to the previous ranking in July last year, according to the latest Henley Passport Index.

People holding Vietnamese passports enjoy visa-free access to 55 countries and territories worldwide.

The figure is unchanged compared with that in July 2023.

In Southeast Asia, the Vietnamese passport is more powerful than those of Laos and Myanmar, which rank 90th and 92nd, respectively, but it is inferior to those of Malaysia (12th), Singapore (1st), Brunei (20th), Timor Leste (56th), Thailand (63rd), Indonesia (66th), the Philippines (73th), and Cambodia (86th).

In addition to Singapore, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and Spain top the list.

The holders of these countries' passports are entitled to entry to 194 countries and territories without a visa or with visas obtained on arrival.

The Henley Passport Index has been issued by Henley & Partners, a global firm in residence and citizenship by investment, since 2005.

The ranking is based on exclusive data from the International Air Transport Association.
