The Austrian Passport Index

The Henley Passport Index annually publishes a ranking of passports among 199 countries worldwide, classifying them based on the freedom of movement their citizens enjoy (i.e., the ability to visit other countries without obtaining a visa or with visa-on-arrival privileges). In this ranking, the Austrian passport holds an esteemed position in the prestigious third place!

What does this mean?

If you possess an Austrian passport, you have:

- Visa-free access to 112 countries around the world.

- Visa-on-arrival privileges in 43 countries.

- Visa requirements for entry into 43 countries, where visa application is still necessary.

Data for compiling the ranking is collected by the international consulting firm Henley & Partners in collaboration with the International Air Transport Association (IATA) and is updated quarterly.

On the website, you can always check the up-to-date information regarding entry conditions for any country of your interest, as well as verify the passport index of different countries.

According to the website's data, the Austrian passport has consistently held leading positions in the ranking, sharing the third place with neighboring countries such as Germany, Denmark, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, France, and Switzerland.
