How powerful is your passport?

OT | 24 Oct 2015 13:01 | Jacob | Comments: 2

As any passionate traveller knows, passports are the key to adventures. Passports are the ultimate “don’t leave home without it” item, but the nationality of your passport can have a major effect on your travel plans and time abroad.

To clue you on the effects your passport can have, we dived into the official analysis of www.passportindex.org to find out the power ranking of passports. The most obvious factor that can determine power of the passport is the visa free access. Therefore, even the ranking is based on how many countries you can visit with your passport without visa.

So, just how powerful is that passport in your pocket?
