What is the most powerful Passport in the world? A new index produced by Arton Capital ranks countries’ passports based on the number of nations that it allows holders to enter without a visa. Singapore’s passport is top of the list – a total of 159 countries allow Singaporean passport holders to enter without a visa or with a visa on arrival, placing it one spot ahead of German passport holders. The top three is rounded out jointly by Sweden and South Korea with 157 countries. Where is Canada on this list? We come in joint nineteenth, with the United States, with a total of 154 countries allowing Canadian passport holders to enter without visa restrictions. That puts us behind most Western European countries…but way ahead of Afghanistan. Afghan Passport holders are the least powerful, as their document only allows visa free access to 22 countries.
