There is some good news for frequent flyers as according to the latest Henley Passport Index - which ranks passports based on their power and mobility - India stands at the 85th position, two places ahead of last year's 87th spot.

Last year, an Indian passport holder had visa-free access to 60 countries; this year, one has access to 59.

Prepared by London-based Henley and Partners, a global citizenship and residence advisory firm, the Henley Passport Index claims to be the "original ranking of all the world's passports".

The Henley Passport Index is updated quarterly according to countries' visa policy changes. It covers 227 destinations and 199 passports.

Owing to increasing migration, Indian passport holders have lost visa-free access to Serbia.

Indian passport|| holders can travel visa-free to 59 destinations like Bhutan, Indonesia, Macao, Maldives, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Kenya, Mauritius, Seychelles, Zimbabwe, Uganda, Iran and Qatar. However, some countries require visa-on-arrival.
