Koreans carry the world's second-most-powerful passport.
Swiss-based research firm Henley and Partners said Tuesday a Korean passport ranked second on its latest index, up a notch from July. Koreans can travel to 190 countries without obtaining a visa beforehand, the same number as Germany.
Rankings are based on the number of countries a holder of a certain passport can enter without a visa.
Japanese and Singaporean passports jointly topped the list, granting visa-free access to 192 countries.
