The power of the Turkish passport declined three spots and fell to 55th in a list of 191 countries, according to a global passport index.
The Henley Passport Index ranks countries according to the number of destinations passport holders can visit without a pre-arranged visa, which decreased for Turkey this year. As of 2020, Turkish citizens can travel to 111 countries without a visa.
In 2006 Turkey was ranked 46th in the Henley Passport Index when it was first introduced.
For the third consecutive year, Japan has secured the top spot on the index with a visa-free/visa-on-arrival score of 191.
Singapore held on to its second-place position with a score of 190, while South Korea dropped to third place along with Germany, giving their passport holders visa-free/visa-on-arrival access to 189 destinations worldwide.
At the other end of the travel freedom spectrum, Afghanistan remained at the bottom of the index, with its nationals only able to visit a mere 26 destinations visa-free.
