How good is it really to be a South African? According to the latest Quality of Nationality Index‚ an Mzansi passport ranks as only the 87th best in the world‚ and fourth in sub-Saharan Africa.

South Africa’s “quality of nationality” scored 33%‚ putting it in the lower half of the 150 states in the index and giving it a “medium quality” rating.

The findings were released in London on Wednesday by international residence and citizenship planning firm‚ Henley & Partners.

Quality of life‚ opportunities for personal growth‚ diversity and the quality of opportunities were just some of the factors considered.
