About Henley Passport Index
Introduced by Dr. Christian H. Kaelin, President of Henley & Partners, almost 20 years ago.
It calculates passport rankings based on exclusive and official data from the International Air Transport Association (IATA).
The index considers the number of destinations that passport holders can travel to without prior visas.
The methodology used by the Henley Passport Index differs from other passport rankings, such as those published by financial advisors Arton Capital.
The index relies entirely on data from the International Air Transport Association to determine its rankings.
