The Most Powerful Passports in the World

It’s not just the colour of a passport that distinguish the document in each country. Some passports are just more powerful. Real Time Ranking compiled by citizenship-planning firm Henley & Partners which ranks the world’s passports each year to identify which are the most powerful, released their most recent rankings.

As of early 2018, Germany has for five years in a row been ranked as having the world’s most powerful passport. However, the country just ceded that title to Japan and Singapore.

Citizens of Japan and Singapore now have easy access to 180 countries, compared to Germany’s 179. Among the countries that have made it easier for citizens of Japan and Singapore to travel there is Uzbekistan, which recently relaxed its visa requirements to give citizens of seven countries visa-free travel for up to 30 days.
