The Philippines has improved its ranking in the World's Most Powerful Passport index. This is based on the 2020 Henley Passport Index

As we enter the new year  the Philippines has moved one rank higher from last year. But we remain in the lower half of the index that assesses the most travel-friendly passports. 

The Philippines is now in the 76th place as the most-friendly passport out of 199 countries. That means we can now go visit 67 countries visa-free. We are tied with the country Azarbaijan.

The Henley Passport Index ranks countries based on the number of destinations it can visit without prior visa. 

Still, we are behind other ASEAN countries.  Singapore ranked second (2nd), Malaysia, 13th, Brunei at 23rd place, Thailand at 65th and Indonesia at 72nd place. Also, It shows Japan still on the top spot for 3 consecutive years. They can go to 191 travel destinations hassle-free. In addition, South Korea, another Asian country, is in the 3rd place.

Meanwhile, Afghanistan remains in the last spot as they can only visit 26 destinations without a visa.

The report is based on data provided by  International Air Transport Association (IATA). 

For now, these are the places where we can visit visa-free.
