As per Henley & Partners Visa Restrictions Index, a Danish passport holder has visa-free travel to 169 countries and is the best to acquire for world travel. This is closely followed by Sweden, Finland and Germany at 168 while the UK (British citizens), Netherlands, France and Belgium come a close third place at 167.
When considering the GCC countries, UAE passport holders come second among GCC nationals with free access to 70 countries. The country is ranked 64th, followed by Qatar (67 countries, rank 67th), Bahrain (66 countries, rank 68th), Oman (61 countries, rank 72nd) and Saudi Arabia (59 countries, rank 74th).
Although visa restrictions for all GCC nationals were relaxed in the past year to enable visa-free travel to one more country than in 2011, the rankings of all six states have gone down by one notch since last year.
