Moving into the third quarter of 2019, Saint Lucia captured the fourth spot in the OECS, on the Henley Passport Index, with a visa-free/visa-on-arrival score of 144.
This latest ranking of passport power and global mobility – which is based on exclusive data from the International Air Transport Association (IATA) – saw Saint Lucia move one rank up from the Q2, due to movements higher up on the index.
Managing Partner of Henley & Partners Saint Lucia, Mark D. Maragh, expresses: “The people of Saint Lucia remain confident in the power of the Saint Lucian passport. Henley & Partners will continue to work closely with the government of Saint Lucia to ensure that the passport maintains its high standard and attractiveness.
“With the recent Q3 ranking, we are assured that Saint Lucia’s passport is highly sort after, which means the island can benefit from a better bargaining power, with potential investors”
In the Q2 rankings, Antigua and Barbuda and St. Kitts and Nevis were separated by only one spot on the rankings; they are now separated by three spots – landing St.Kitts and Nevis the top spot while Antigua and Barbuda capture the second spot in the OECS in the Q3 ranking. Grenada’s growth remains relatively steady.
