What’s more joyous than travelling to a destination unknown, listening to stories unheard of, and exploring landscapes never seen before! Travel has got us all addicted and our weekend chit-chats always involve something or the other about travel. While just discussing travel gets us all pumped up, what makes us ecstatic is when we see our passports getting inked. Ah, what beautiful colours. And, the tales they tell. But, not all passports are the same. While some can give you a real sense of freedom (read Infinity Stones), some can be really stingy. So, which country has all the Infinity Stones? Uh, we mean, the most valuable passport?
According to a report published by Henley & Partners Passport Index on the 9th of October 2018, Japan has the world’s most powerful passport. Offering access to a staggering 190 destinations provided with either the option of visa-free or visa-on-arrival, Japan citizens now have more power. With this, Japan has now pushed Singapore (189 destinations access) to the second spot. The climb comes in as Japan obtained visa-free access to Myanmar earlier this month.
The third place is jointly secured by Germany, France, and South Korea with a score of 188. Want to know where India is on the list? India is at 81st position with a score of 60, while China is placed 71.
Below is a comprehensive list of all the most valuable passports ranked with respect to the access they offer.
The ranking is based on the exclusive data from the International Air Transport Association (IATA).
