Africa’s most powerful passports are…

As the world becomes more interconnected and the need for travel increases, passport holders of some countries have it easier than others when it comes to visa-free travel.

In Africa, citizens of the Seychelles have the most travel freedom, while Somalia has the least powerful passport, according to the latest ranking by Henley & Partners Visa Restrictions Index. The rankings are based on the number of countries passport-holders can visit without a visa.

Africa’s Most Powerful Passports

While travelling outside the continent is infamously difficult for African passport holders, citizens of the Seychelles have visa-free access to 137 countries in the world, including China, Germany, and France. As a top tourist destination, the Seychelles is one of the few countries in the world that allows visitors from any country to cross its borders without a visa. This making it one of Africa’s most powerful passports.

South Africa has the third most powerful passport on the continent. South Africans can travel to 98 countries without a visa. The continent’s biggest economy took a tumble in this year’s rankings, having held the top spot between 2007 and 2009 before being surpassed by the Seychelles and Mauritius.
