Israelis score highly in travel freedom survey

    Israel is ranked 20th out of 90 nations for the number of countries its citizens can visit without a visa, according to a new survey.

    Of the 219 destinations in the world, Israelis can visit 144 without a visa. This ranks them higher than Russians, South Africans and residents of The Vatican.

    The UK is joint first in the Henley and Partners Index, along with Sweden and Finland. UK citizens can visit 173 countries without a visa.

    Israel’s ranking is in stark comparison to those with a Palestinian Territory passport, who can visit only 36 countries without a visa, putting them fifth from bottom. Only people from Pakistan, Somalia, Iraq and Afghanistan can visit fewer.
