Report reveals top 10 most open African countries at start of 2024


Interconnectivity is now more conceivable than ever following the fast advancement of tech and its influence on tourism, especially in Africa.

Business Insider Africa presented the top 10 most open African countries at the start of 2024.

These countries are: Burundi, Cape Verde Islands, Comoro Islands, Djibouti, Guinea-Bissau, Kenya, Mozambique, Rwanda, Madagascar and Mauritania.

This list was courtesy of Henley and Partners.

Eight of the top 10 most open countries were African.

Additionally, these eight African countries all share first place as they allowed 198 countries the freedom to visit.

Somalia and Togo also share the second position, as they too allow 197 countries to visit, despite not being on the top 10 list.

An article by Business Insider Africa showed that traveling these days had grown more appealing as a new wave of integration swept the globe.

It stated that as mankind continued to advocate for cultural interactions, an increasing number of individuals were encountering and welcoming people from other nations, allowing understanding to replace conflict.

The Openness Index, a metric that gauges a nation’s accessibility and receptiveness to global trade, ideas, and collaboration, stands as a key indicator of a country’s economic, social, and cultural vibrancy.

Henley and Partners, a firm focused on residence and citizenship by investment, recently released its Openness Index for 2024.

“The Henley Openness Index ranks all 199 countries and territories worldwide according to the number of nationalities they permit entry to without a prior visa,” the firm notes.
