Henley & Partners has published a new ranking of the most influential passports in the world. The influence of a passport is assessed by a special index (The Henley Passport Index), which shows the degree of freedom of movement of citizens around the world. 

Thus, in 2023, the Ukrainian passport rose 4 places and took 30th place in the global ranking. Grenada and St. Lucia share the 30th position with Ukrainian documents.

Over the past year, the list of visa-free countries for Ukrainians has been expanded by 3 countries, in particular, in 2023, Ukrainian citizens were able to visit Israel, Suriname and Djibouti. Thus, today, Ukrainians can travel to 146 countries without a visa on the basis of a passport.

or example, the passport of the russian federation ranks 49th out of 115 visa-free countries, China's ranks 63rd (80 countries), and Belarus' ranks 64th (79 countries).
