The world’s most powerful passport list has been impacted by the conflict in Ukraine. CNN reports that global citizenship and residence advisory firm Henley & Partners, based on exclusive data provided by the International Air Transport Association, has released its quarterly report on the world’s most desirable passports and it shows that the closure of airspace due to Russia’s military aggression and the opening of borders to Ukrainian refugees has begun to exert influence on global travel freedoms. The firm’s Henley Passport Index ranks the Namibian passport at 67 out of 199 with a visa-free score of 78. Coronavirus-related travel bans also had an impact on this year’s rankings.
