The 2020 edition of the Henley Passport Index Global Ranking places Luxembourg in 4th place in terms of passport holders’ freedom to travel around the world without having to apply for a visa. Luxembourg nationals can access 188 different countries without obtaining a visa before travelling.

Japan is in first place with 191 countries, followed by Singapore with 190 and Germany and South Korea with 189 each. Luxembourg shares 4th place with Finland, Italy and Spain.

The Henley Passport Index claims to be the most rigorous and sophisticated measure of global access.
