According to the Henley Passport Index, now is a great time to be a Japanese passport holder because that means Japanese citizens can travel to 190 countries without a visa or get a visa on arrival. Earlier this year, Japan and Singapore shared the top rank but after gaining visa-free access to Myanmar, it overtook Singapore passport. Singapore stands second with 189 countries, followed by Germany, South Korea and France in third with 188 destinations. With access to 187 destinations, Denmark, Finland, Italy, Sweden and Spain are in fouth place whereas, US, UK, Norway, Austria, Luxembourg, Netherlands and Portugal are together placed in the fifth.

In case you are wondering, visa free entry means one can enter a country without a visa for a specified period. Visa-on-arrival means one can get the visa after you reach the destination. The Henley Passport Index is a ranking of all the passports of the world and gives a clear picture of the number of countries their holders can visit without a visa. By the way, India stands at 81 with access to 60 countries in total and visa-free access to 8 countries--Indonesia, Bhutan, Fiji, Maldives, Mauritius, Nepal, Seychelles and Serbia.
