The British consultancy firm Henley and Partners ranks 199 of the world’s passports in terms of the number of countries to which their holders can get visa-free entry. Taiwan’s passport comes in at 32nd place!

Taiwan passport holders can visit 146 countries, while China passport owners can only visit less than half that number at 71 countries. The Hong Kong passport comes up a bit above the Taiwanese with 169 countries they can visit without a visa and the Macau passport is on 34th place with 144 countries they can visit without a visa.

Japan retained the top spot for the third year in a row as its passport holders can enter 191 countries without a visa or a visa on arrival. In second place was Singapore, followed by South Korea, Germany, Italy, Finland, Spain, Luxembourg, Denmark, and Sweden, to round out the top 10.

In the Asia-Pacific region, Taiwanese travelers hold the eighth most powerful passport in the Asia-Pacific region, behind Japan, Singapore, South Korea, Hong Kong, Malaysia, and Brunei, according to the index. Taiwan towered over its neighbors China and the Philippines, which came in 72nd and 76th place, respectively.

The report points out that there is a growing gap in the freedom of travel among countries. Japanese people can visit 191 countries while the Afghan passport holder only gets visa-free/visa-on-arrival access to 26 destinations.

While a Hong Kong passport holder can go to more countries visa-free overall than a Taiwanese passport holder, it is interesting to some countries to which a Taiwanese has better access. For example, United States, Philippines and Egypt.

Here is a list of every country that Taiwanese passport holders can visit without a visa.
