Kenya has climbed six positions in the global passport ranking, landing at position 67 in 2024 from 73 last year.

This is according to London-based global citizenship and residence advisory firm Henley and Partners’ ranking, which tied Kenya and Malawi at the same position.

The Asian nations of Japan and Singapore have dominated the No.1 spot for the past five years, but the new top five is a triumphant rise for Europe.

Finland and Sweden are tied with South Korea in second place – with easy access to 193 destinations –while Austria, Denmark, Ireland, and the Netherlands come third (with 192 destinations).
