A recent report has shown that holding a NZ passport comes with many privileges. It has been ranked among the best and a perfect one for travellers to travel anywhere around the world. The study was conducted based on the total number of places New Zealanders can travel to without holding a visa.
 
The index was prepared by Henley & Partners, a citizenship and residency-planning consultancy. According to their study, the best passports are from United Kingdom, Finland and Sweden. Each on of these countries ranked 173 in the list; this means that, citizens holding a passport from either UK, Finland or Sweden can travel to 173 countries without a visa. Countries those scored 172 points each were Germany, Denmark, United States and Luxembourg.

Third rank holders were Italy, Netherlands and Belgium with a joint score of 171, Canada at fourth with 170. New Zealand came fifth with a score of 168 and shared the rank also with Austria and Switzerland. Australia, Singapore and Greece joins the sixth rank together with a score of 167.
 
However, there are also few passports that are considered worst for travellers. An unlucky passport to hold would be that of Afghanistan's with an entry to just 28 countries, it ranks 93 in the index. The other worst passports to hold would be Iraqi, Somalia and Pakistani passports. With very low traveling freedom, their citizens wandering rights across the globe are limited to a very great extent. Henley and Partners started their visa restriction index in 2006. According to Henley and Partners, visa restrictions help governments to filter, monitor and control the migrant traffic across borders.
 
Visa requirements also shows the level of partnership countries have with each other and would also indicate the status a country shares internationally among a group of nations. Different countries have different visa application processes, United States has ESTA which make it easier for anyone to apply, countries like India and China have procedures that can even take months.
 
To enter Argentina, citizens of US, Canada and Australia should pay of fee of $100, as these countries charge the same from Argentine citizens upon entry. New Zealanders, however, doesn't have to pay this fee. India is planning to ease its visa norms by proposing to grant 40 countries with visa on arrival to further boost its tourism. At present, India only issues visa on arrival to few countries and that includes New Zealand as well. Indians who wish to apply for a travel visa to New Zealand can do it easily with the help of a good travel consultant to New Zealand.
