Henley and Partners, a global leader in residence and citizenship planning, each year analyzes passport strength around the world. They count how many countries you can access visa-free if you hold a given passport, and rank passports accordingly. In January 2018, Hungary ranks 10th in the Henley Passport Index.
Hungary offers visa-free access to 168 countries, including the United Kingdom, the United states, and Canada.
