The Henley Passport Index

The Henley Passport Index is the original ranking of all the world’s passports according to the number of destinations their holders can access without a prior visa. The ranking is based on exclusive data from the International Air Transport Association (IATA), which maintains the world’s largest and most accurate database of travel information, and is enhanced by the Henley & Partners Research Department.

With expert commentary and historical data spanning 15 years, the Henley Passport Index is an invaluable resource for global citizens and the standard reference tool for governments in this field.

Enhance your passport power with alternative residence or citizenship

Global investors are embracing investment migration programs — the newest member of the safe-haven asset class — as they unlock novel risk management and optimization options for the high-net-worth portfolio. Alternative residence and citizenship provide wealthy individuals and their families with opportunities to expand their business operations and extend market reach, secure greater global influence and mobility, access better education and healthcare, and safeguard their legacies against volatile markets and political instability.

Acquiring an alternative residence or citizenship gives you more travel freedom and residence options and is an effective insurance policy for the next generation. It has become an essential part of any wealth planning strategy and grants you access to the leading economies of the world.
