US Passport Falls in Value, Now ranks same Level with Mexico

US Passport drops in Value

New index reports shows now that the US Passport is no longer as Valuable as it used to be

According to the report the Passport is now as weak as the New Mexico Passport

Before Covid-19 came, Air traffic had been rising steadily for decades

and the average US passport -holder worldwide was enjoying visa-free

or visa-on-arrival access to 107 global destinations.

But now faced with travel bans, coupled with the fact that

the US has the highest number of Coronavirus cases,

the Henley Passport Index, has placed the US Passport as low in Value

While Japan and Singapore, both Asian countries have passports that allow its holders visit the most countries.

Also Japan, according to the index is offered visa-free

or visa-on-arrival access to 191 destinations around the world

US Passport drops in Value

while Singapore is in second place (with a score of 190)

and South Korea ties with Germany in third place (with a score of 189).

However Recall that the EU had released the list of 10 countries banned from entering their country

And Apparently the US falls on that list, meanwhile Japan,

South Korea, Australia and Canada all made the cut of countries that can enter the UN

Furthermore This has in turn Weakened the US Passport against the backdrop of other Asian countries

Also Under the current EU ban, Americans have been place around the same level of travel freedom

as citizens of Mexico (No. 25 on Henley Passport Index,

with a score of 159) and Uruguay (No. 28, with a score of 153).
