Brunei passport third most powerful in Asean region

The country currently boasts the third most powerful passport in South-East Asia, as its residents can travel to 82 countries, according to a new global passport ranking.

It also ranks as the 28th most powerful in the world.

The Passport Index ranks passports based on where citizens who hold them can travel.

This includes looking at where they can travel visa-free or where tourist visas apply. The ranking covers 193 United Nations countries, as well as six other territories.

New Zealand currently boasts the world’s most powerful passport, as its residents can travel to 129 countries.

In a similar survey last year, the Bruneian passport was regarded as one of the biggest winners in the Global Passport Index, achieving the best net score for nine visa waivers gained or lost, and one of the fastest growing passports for 2019.

The report also found that Brunei has the 16th most powerful passport worldwide, with a Mobility Score of 153, giving its citizens the ability to travel visa-free to a total of 153 countries or destinations. — Borneo Bulletin/ANN
