Georgia has lost two positions in the Passport Index, Trend reports citing Georgian media outlets.
Currently, Georgian citizens can visit 116 countries of the world without a visa, which is two more than a year ago. During the year, Georgia received visa-free access to Senegal, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Thailand and Grenada, but at the same time lost its visa-free regime with Benin and Djibouti.

For the third year in a row, Japan holds first place in the index. Citizens of the country can visit 191 destinations of the world without a visa, which is one country more than a year ago.
Singapore maintained second place with 190 countries.
South Korea, together with Germany, occupies third place (189 destinations).
