The Qatari passport has been ranked number 53 in a global index of 199 countries with 97 points in the visa-free score on the Henley Passport Index. The Henley Passport Index is the authoritative ranking of all the world’s passports based on the number of destinations their holders can travel to without holding a prior valid visa. This ranking is for the first quarter of 2022.
Countries ranking in the top three are Japan (1), Singapore (2) and Germany (3).
How does the Henley Passport Index rank countries? According to their website:
"The Henley Passport Index compares the visa-free access of 199 different passports to 227 travel destinations. If no visa is required, then a score with value = 1 is created for that passport. The same applies if you can obtain a visa on arrival, a visitor’s permit, or an electronic travel authority (ETA) when entering the destination. Where a visa is required, or where a passport holder has to obtain a government-approved electronic visa (e-Visa) before departure, a score with value = 0 is assigned. This also applies if you need pre-departure government approval for a visa on arrival. The total score for each passport is equal to the number of destinations for which no visa is required (value = 1)."
