Belize’s ranking falls on passport index

Posted: Tuesday, January 7, 2020. 3:17 pm CST.

By BBN Staff: In the Henley and Partners Passport Index, a tool that measures how many territories passport holders from ranked countries can travel to without needing a visa, Belize’s ranking has fallen by several spots when compared to last year.

The 2019 Passport Index, released this week, showed that Belize ranked 56 out of a total of 107, a decline of six spaces when compared to the Rank 51 earned back in 2018.

The fall in ranking represents progression by other countries as opposed to any declines in Belize’s performance, as Belize had a “visa-free” score of 100 in 2019, the same as its 2018 score. There were also three more countries added to the rankings this year.

Japan and Singapore remain the top two countries with visa-free scores of 191 and 190 respectively, and Germany ranked up from fourth to third place this year, with a score of 189. Afghanistan remains in last place, with a score of visa-free score of 30.

Henley and Partners emphasized that its passport index is the only index of its kind, given that the rankings are made through a combination of data from the International Air Transport Association (IATA), along with in-house research to run quality assurance checks on the data.
