A Belgian passport holder can travel to 184 countries without any visa, making it one of the best passports to hold for travelling the world, according to a study by consulting firm “Henley Passport Index”.
The report concludes that the Japanese passport opens most doors, or visa free travelling to 190 countries. Closely followed by Singapore, South Korea, France, Germany, Italy and the Scandinavian countries.

At the bottom of the table, the passports from Somalia, Irak, Syria and Afghanistan give least access. Someone with an Iraqi or Somalian passport can only travel to 30 countries without a visa.
