Passport Overview

Only 39 countries offer visa-free travel to Iranian passport holders, including Sri Lanka, Ecuador, Turkey, and the Seychelles. An Iranian passport holder is required to obtain a visa for 190 places before going. The passport raking is low on the overall global mobility score because of this.
