In the latest ranking by the Henley Passport Index (HPI), the Nigerian passport has been recognized as granting access to approximately 45 visa-free countries. The HPI, a globally recognized passport-ranking website, evaluates passports based on the number of destinations their holders can visit without requiring a prior visa.

As of the most recent update, Nigeria occupies the 95th position out of 104 countries in the passport power ranking. The HPI report places Nigeria behind countries like Ghana, Guinea, Kenya, Lesotho, Morocco, Benin Republic, and Namibia, which hold the 76th, 83rd, 67th, 65th, 71st, 79th, and 65th positions, respectively.

The Nigerian passport’s visa-free access encompasses diverse destinations, including Barbados, Benin, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cambodia, Cameroon, Cape Verde Islands, Chad, Comoro Islands, Cook Islands, Cote d’Ivoire, Djibouti, Dominican Republic, Fiji, Ghana, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, and Haiti, among others. This provides Nigerian passport holders with the flexibility to travel to these countries without the hassle of obtaining a visa.

The Henley Passport Index relies on exclusive data from the International Air Transport Association (IATA), considered the most extensive and accurate travel information database. The rankings are further enriched by Henley & Partners’ research team. The continuous evaluation of passport power reflects the evolving landscape of global travel and diplomatic relations.
