Results of the second Henley & Partners – Kochenov Quality of Nationality Index (QNI) have been released, with the UK falling outside the top 10 countries in the “extremely high quality” category.

The index ranks the value of every nationality worldwide, based on measures including quality of life, mobility, limitations and global opportunities “inherent” in their passports. It then divides nationalities into five tiers, from “extremely high quality” through to “low quality” status.
