Thailand dropped two points in scoring done by the Passport Index, an international ranking system that rates how easily citizens from different countries can travel without a visa.
On the 2017 index, Thailand placed 107 out of 199 countries ranked. The country got 70 on the index’s “visa-free” scoring, which rates how many countries holders of a certain passport can visit without a visa or by obtaining a visa-on-arrival. It turns out that Thai citizens can visit 34 countries without a visa and they can obtain a visa-on-arrival at 36 more countries.
Thailand got 72 in the visa-free ranking last year, but the site did not identify which two countries dropped Thailand from visa-free/visa-on-arrival status.
Germany remained in first place with a “visa-free” number of 157.
Singapore is the highest ranked passport in Asia, with a “visa-free” number of 156.
