Passport Overview

According to the SovSpot Passport Ranking Index, the Somali passport is now ranked 108th. It is regarded as the world's sixth-lowest-ranking passport. Only 33 countries, including Benin, Dominica, Madagascar, and the Seychelles, allow Somali passport holders to travel visa-free. A Somali passport holder is required to obtain a visa for 196 places before traveling. That is why the Passport Ranking ranks so low on the overall global mobility scale. Somalis must apply for a visa in advance for key locations such as the United States and the European Union. Applicants must show documentation such as evidence of funds and a return airline ticket when applying for a visa.
