The countries with the most powerful passports


The Passport Index ranks countries based on the number of nations where residents can go without purchasing a visa in advance or on arrival.

For example, a Switzerland citizen can fly to 157 countries without ever showing a visa. This makes international travel cheaper and easier than it is for citizens of many other countries such as Afghanistan, who can only enter 24 countries without a visa.

Global financial advisory firm Arton Capital compiled government data from 193 countries and six territories to create the 2016 ranking.

Here are the 13 highest-ranking countries and the number of countries their citizens can visit without a visa.
  1. Sweden, Germany = 158 countries
  2. Finland, France,  Switzerland, Spain, The United Kingdom = 157 countries
  3. Norway, South Korea, Belgium, The Netherlands, Italy, Denmark = 156 countries
  4. Singapore, Luxembourg, Austria, Portugal, United States of America
  5. Greece, Ireland, Japan = 154 countries

  7. Czech Republic, Hungary = 152 countries
  8. Malta, Malaysia, Iceland, Ausralia = 151 countries
  9. Poland = 150 countries
This is how East African Community countries fair...
