Looks like your 2020 bucket list is going to be full of new destinations. The Philippine passport has just been ranked at the 76th spot in terms of global access, with 67 visa-free destinations—a fun coincidence, we know—by the 2020 Henley Passport Index. We jumped up a bit from our 2019 ranking at the 80th spot, though still not quite as good as our 2018 ranking of 70.

This comes after Philippine passport holders were given easier access to several destinations in 2019. Filipinos can stay in Cambodia for up to 30 days visa-free, extended from the previous 21-days period. Taiwan has also extended their 14-day visa-free stay for Filipinos up to July 31, 2020.

Central Asia is now more accessible, too, with Kazakhstan declaring their nation visa-free for Filipino travelers staying for up to 30 days. Further up north, you can also head on to St. Petersburg in Russia without the hassle of applying for a visa—an electronic one is good enough provided you enter through the Pulkovo Airport.
