62 Visa-Free Destinations for Indian Passport Holders

Great news for travel enthusiasts! Indian passport holders can now explore a fantastic array of 62 countries without the hassle of obtaining a visa. This exciting development opens up new horizons for globetrotters, allowing them to delve into diverse cultures, breathtaking landscapes, and historical wonders.

The expanded list encompasses popular tourist destinations across Southeast Asia, Europe, Africa, and the Caribbean. These countries, recognizing the allure of attracting Indian tourists, have made it easier for them to discover iconic landmarks, pristine beaches, and cultural gems.

This positive change places Indian passport holders at the 80th rank globally on the Henley Passport Index. Although India's overall ranking remains consistent from the previous year, the significant increase in visa-free destinations is a notable jump from the previous count of 57.

The Henley Passport Index, a leading tool for passport rankings, derives its data from the International Air Transport Association (IATA). It serves as a gauge for global mobility, reflecting the diplomatic reach and accessibility of passports worldwide.

The top six nations with the most powerful passports this year are France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Singapore, and Spain. Citizens of these countries can travel to an impressive 194 destinations without requiring a visa. On the other end of the spectrum, Afghanistan holds the lowest position, allowing visa-free entry to just 28 countries, closely followed by Syria and Iraq with 29 and 31 visa-free destinations, respectively. Unfortunately, the Pakistan passport did not fare well this year, offering access to only 34 countries.
