Dominica passport ranked among top 10 in the region and 34th globally


The recently released 2024 Henley Passport Index by Henley & Partners reveals that Dominica’s passport ranks among the top ten in the Caribbean region and 34th globally, according to the London-based global citizenship and residence advisory firm.

The Henley Passport Index, covering 199 passports and 227 travel destinations, remains the most authoritative ranking of world passports, offering insights into the power of passports and the freedom of movement they provide.

Henley’s latest report, the first of the year and quarter for 2024, as always, evaluates national passports based on their power – the number of destinations passport holders can visit without a prior visa. According to the report, holders of Dominican passports enjoy visa-free access to 144 countries.

This most recent report reveals a minor increase in Dominica’s global ranking despite a slight decrease in visa-free-travel destinations. In the previous year, it held the 35th position, affording its citizens visa-free access to 145 destinations.

Barbados, securing visa-free access to 165 destinations and holding a global passport ranking of 22, has once again emerged with the most powerful passport in the Caribbean region for the ninth consecutive year. The regional ranking includes The Bahamas at number two, with a global ranking at #24 and visa-free access to 158 destinations.

Other regional countries to outrank Dominica are St Kitts and Nevis and St Vincent and the Grenadines, both globally ranked at #25 with visa-free access to 157 destinations. Antigua and Barbuda follows at #27 globally, Trinidad and Tobago at #29 with access to 151 destinations, and Grenada and St Lucia both at #32 with visa-free access to 148 destinations.

At the global level, an unprecedented six countries share the top spot on the 2024 Henley Passport Index, boasting visa-free access to a record-breaking 194 destinations. These countries – France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, and Singapore – hold the number one position for the most powerful passport in the world in 2024.

Conversely, Afghanistan holds the least powerful passport, ranked 104th with access to just 28 destinations, underscoring global disparities in travel freedom. With historical data spanning 18 years and regularly updated expert analysis on the latest shifts in passport power, the index is said to be an invaluable resource for global citizens and the standard reference tool for government policy in this field.

    All of this is false: nothing but lies to justify the sale of the nations passports; has anyone ever wonder how come Dominica the poorest, and most backward place is always high on the lists of everything: i.e. the first and only resilient nation on planet earth!
    The only nation with some sort of secret building technology Skerrit develop to build houses that can bend in the highest velocity of hurricane wind, including tornadoes, earthquakes and fire retardant, no matter the cause the however; they return to their shape or form in which they were built.
    I suggest changing the name of the island from Dominica to “Fantasy island” hence, ours will be the first and only real fantasy island to ever exists.
    Fact is anyone traveling with a Dominica passport to my mind is considered suspect, a bogs citizen of Dominica. and that has been proved in the European Nation (EU), so this garbage, someone must have received payment from Roosevelt Skerrit to spew that lie!

      I don’t see any problems with the meeting to discuss a concern. The EU is just too bloated and rely like the U.S, on bullying, what they consider 3rd world countries into conforming to their values with threats of sanctions. Don’t sleep, wake up and do just a little research you’ll see these are not nice people, these are bad people aimed at creating dependence for a few dollars.

    When the UK imposed visa free restrictions on Dominica you,Shaka Zulu congratulated the UK.The meeting by the 27 member EU to decide whether to put visa free restrictions on Dominica was put on hold from 2023 to 2025.Bad news for the blue cabal.UWP and their acolytes are trying to kill the CBI,and in turn kill the people who depend on the CBI.

    False report: The Dominica passport is now no longer required. Many countries have closed entry. Even Turkey has stopped entry, and many countries will follow later. The matter has become clear as the sun to everyone. No one buys a Dominica passport now.

    Henley & Patner What you guys beleive Dominicans is a bunch of fools, if is that you were told you all better thing again ,you all reaping Dominica off and putting your nonsence out there making the world to beleive everything is ok in Dominica.

    How is it so highly ranked and I am a born and bred Dominican , with no criminal history and two months I trying to get a passport and I can’t get it? How come? Stop deceiving us man. This passport is just highly ranked among criminals on the run, for criminals that want to run and need a passport and by criminals that used our passport to run from law enforcement

    Henley and Partners have developed there business by aiding wealthy people around the world to migrate and take advantage in the Tax relief in other countries. This company based in England is just another form of European hypocrisy and capitalism on the psychologically and self enslaved. what does than mean for everyday Dominican? It means your sovereignty is a commodity to make a few very wealthy, your administration very corrupted, and your people increasingly poor and psychologically enslaved. The results are quite visible. This is only important to Henley and Partners since they are the ones benefiting the most from the citizenship scheme by all countries involved. They are not the only company doing. OFF COURSE they going to rank thier product according to which makes them more money. This means nothing to Dominicans and nothing to celebrate. Yet we continue to allow ourselves to be fooled. meanwhile old folks waiting for poppers allowance and the rest looking for crumbs.

    I hope those UWP acolytes,crooks and traitors read and read again.They(UWP)and their acolytes have tried and are still trying to destroy Dominica and the lives of the Dominican PEOPLE through the CBI programme.The Dominican authorities should make a report to Homeland Security complaining about the American prodigal sons interfering in Dominica’s political affairs.This government is too damn soft and stupid,the blue party is a terrorist party,and should be dealt with accordingly,go after them in Dominica,go after them overseas,go after in the air,go after them on land and sea.They are all traitors.
