One of the greatest freedoms overlooked by most Americans is the freedom to travel the world. I’m still shocked to learn that only 1 out of two Americans hold a US Passport (!!). I wish more people would get out and travel because it’s so enriching.
On the other hand, I know many travelers hold more than one Passport and will use them when there’s an “advantage” when traveling (such as getting around paying a reciprocity fee, etc.).
The Passport Index ranks each country’s Passport by their Passport Power Rank.Â Passports are ranked based on their Visa Free Score. The higher the Visa Free Score, the better the Passport Power Rank.
I’m not surprisedÂ to see United States listed as #1 (tied with United Kingdom). Â The bottom of the list (least powerful passports) includes Myanmar, South Sudan, and Palestinian Territories.
I am a bit surprised to see that #2 on the list includes South Korea.
What passports do you hold and where do they fall on the list?
