    The Henley & Partners – Kochenov Quality of Nationality Index
    The Henley & Partners Kochenov Quality of Nationality Index (QNI) is the first to ever objectively rank the quality of nationalities worldwide. It explores both internal factors (such as the scale of the economy, human development, and peace and stability) and external factors (including visa-free travel and the ability to settle and work abroad without cumbersome formalities) that make one nationality better than another in terms of legal status in which to develop your talents and business.

    The QNI is the result of a successful cooperation between Henley & Partners and Professor Dr. Dimitry Kochenov, a leading constitutional law professor with a long-standing interest in European and comparative citizenship law.

    The QNI will be of interest to anyone who would like to know how their nationality performs in comparison to others, and is interested in the local, regional and global opportunities, mobility, life chances and limitations of their nationality. It is of further interest to financially independent individuals who wish to acquire the benefits of dual citizenship; the QNI provides assistance in selecting the most valuable second nationality for themselves and their families.

    The following table shows the top 10 nationalities in 2016 on the QNI:

    Funny that you've got a bunch of Baltic countries that have to put in affirmative programs to attract immigration by giving passports with pretty minimal investment are ranked ahead of the U.S., which is very difficult to get a work permit for let alone citizenship. I have my doubts about the value of my U.S. passport at times, but revealed preferences are always a more reliable indicator than a study and they clearly don't back up this one.
