A citizenship and planning firm, Henley & Partners, as ranked Kenya’s passport as the eighth most powerful in Africa.
The new research shows the country has, however, slipped down compared to the previous years which the country’s world rating was 62 as at October, 2018.
The firm took into account how many countries can be visited without applying for a visa.
The report said: “Kenya ranked 72nd in 2019 with 71 destination visa free access,” says the report that is produced in partnership with International Air Transport Association (IATA).
“As the world economy has become increasingly globalised, the need for greater visa-free access has grown steadily.”
Some of the countries that Kenyans can access without visa or get one on arrival include Singapore, Hong Kong, Jamaica and Fiji, among others.
