Ranking the most welcoming countries for tourists in 2022

When it comes to welcoming countries, the basic way to rank them is the ease of access, that is visa-free country, visa-on-arrival and other rules that allow you to enter the country.

What makes a country unwelcoming for you and welcoming to other others is simply your countries’ passport.

A South African passport will get you into fewer countries but with a British passport, more countries will open their doors to you.
