International travel may not be in the cards for the time being amid the COVID-19 pandemic, but Japan’s passport remains the most convenient, offering access to a record 193 countries without a visa, according to the 2021 Global Ranking in the Henley Passport Index.

Singapore ranked second with 192 countries, followed by South Korea and Germany with 191 nations, according to the index, which was released earlier this week. Japan has been at the top since 2018.

“It is somewhat ironic that Japan is ranked 1st — which effectively means its citizens are the most welcomed in the world — yet recently made the difficult decision to bar spectators from abroad from the rescheduled Olympic and Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020,” citizenship advisory firm Henley & Partners, which conducted the survey, said in a statement.
