Canada Passport ranks 6th

The Canadian passport has been ranked 6th in the world, surpassing the United States, which is now ranked 7th. This is the first time that Canada has ranked higher than the US in the Henley Passport Index, which ranks passports based on the number of countries their holders can travel to visa-free or with a visa on arrival.

The improvement in Canada’s passport ranking is due to a number of factors, including the country’s strong economic performance and its reputation for safety and security. Canada also recently added 13 more countries to its visa-free travel list, including Panama, the Caribbean island states of Antigua and Barbados, and the Philippines.
