According to the website Passportindex.org, who creates a world ranking on passports depending on the ease they provide when travelling, Cameroon is among the countries whose passports offer the least possibilities of travelling without a visa or by getting a visa upon arrival. With only 43 open destinations, the Cameroonian passport is among the last 15 in Africa in terms of travelling facilitation.
The country is far behind Seychelles, first in this Passportindex.org ranking. Indeed, we learned, it is possible with a Seychelles passport to freely travel to 126 countries (including 96 without visa and 30 with a visa upon arrival), while the Mauritian passport opens 118 destinations to its holder; against 90 for the South African passport.
In the CEMAC zone, the Cameroonian passport (with a ranking equal to Equatorial Guinea and Congolese documents) is even outranked by Chad (44 destinations), Gabon (44 destinations) and the Central African Republic (44 destinations).
