A report released recently by Henley & Partners shows that British Citizens can now travel to 166 countries for at least three days without acquiring a visa, putting the UK top of the firm’s Visa Restrictions Index. Danes, who previously led in this category, can travel to 164 countries visa free; other countries topping the list include: Sweden, Germany, Belgium, Italy, France, Finland and Japan. Nations which ranked poorly in the report include: India, China, North Korea and Russia. The United States was ranked 7th despite leading the category in 2006, the first year the list was published. This comes as good news as the winter season begins with many British families focused on planning Gran Canaria holidays and excursions to other warm locations.
Luke Nathan of travel consultants Travelsoon says: “This goes to show that Brits have fantastic opportunities to go abroad compared to people from other countries. Having such a widely accepted passport is clearly a huge advantage - being able to hop on a plane knowing that they will have no problem crossing into a foreign country is very important to our customers. It allows them to enjoy rewarding stress free holidays.”
Nathan, whose company specialises in holidays to Tenerife and similar exotic destinations, stated that Brits have many other advantages that allow them to travel, including geographical proximity to European holiday locations and a large number of airports carrying flights to foreign countries.
Nathan concluded: “There are so few boundaries now, it really opens the world up to our
British clients. The ability to travel is truly one of the great advantages of holding a British
Passport, and it would be a shame to not take advantage of it. We have some fantastic deals
coming up this winter for holidays in Lanzarote, Turkey, Mexico, Thailand and many other exotic locales. We hope Brits will get out their world leading passports and explore the globe.”
