The World's most Powerful Passport 2018



The passport often consider as a entry to the world,but some passports are more powerful than their counterparts.That means some passport offers more freedom to travel than other.

A new report published by Henley Passport Index in February 2018, reveals just how many borders some travel documents can cross.

There are, it says, just two countries whose citizens enjoy visa-free access to a whopping 180 destinations around the world, and they're both in Asia.

Japan & Singapore are now the worlds most powerful passport and successfully knocked off Germany from the top position with its visa free access to 179 nations.  

It's due in part to Uzbekistan lifting visa requirements for Japanese and Singaporean nationals in early February. Last year, Paraguay also removed visa requirements for Singaporean passport holders.
