Newly released statistics from the Henley Passport Index show an overall decline in the value of African passports over the past 10 years.


The report, which ranks passports based on their total visa-free score and data from the International Air Transport Association (IATA), blames this decline on political instability and conflict.


Seychelles holds the title for the most powerful passport in Africa, for the third year in a row. It is followed by Mauritius and South Africa.


Here is the full list of 10 most powerful passports in the continent, according to the 2020 Henley Passport Index:


Seychelles
