The Henley Passport Index (abbreviation: HPI) is a global ranking of countries according to the travel freedom allowed by those countries' ordinary passports for their citizens.[2] It started in 2006 as Henley & Partners Visa Restrictions Index (HVRI)[3] and was changed and renamed in January 2018.[4]

The index annually ranks 199 passports of the world by the number of countries that their holders can travel to without visas.[5] The number of countries that a specific passport can access becomes its visa-free "score". In collaboration with the International Air Transport Association (IATA),[6] and using official data from their global database, Henley & Partners has analysed the visa regulations of almost all the world's countries and territories since 2006.[3][7]

The Henley Passport index (HPI) ranks passports according to the number of destinations that can be reached using a particular country's ordinary passport without the need of a prior visa ("visa-free").[8][9] The survey ranks 199 passports against 227 destination[10] countries, territories, and micro-states.[11][12][13]
