Interesting article from whatsonsukhumvit.com Which Nationalities Have The World’s Most Powerful Passports.

The Thai passport is ranked in 67th position

GERMANY comes in at first place. A new index by immigration company Henley & Partners has compiled rankings for every country in the world to figure out which has the most powerful passport – as in, which passports can enter the most amount of countries without needing a visa.

Here’s the top ten rankings, along with the number of countries they can enter visa-free:

1)  Germany (177)
2)  Sweden (176)
3)  Finland, France, Italy, Spain, UK (175)
4)  Belgium, Denmark, Netherlands, USA (174)
5)  Austria, Japan, Singapore (173)
6)  Canada, Ireland, South Korea, Luxembourg, Norway, Portugal, Switzerland (172)
7)  Greece, New Zealand (171)
8.)  Australia (169)
9)  Malta (168)
10) Hungary, Czech Republic, Iceland  (167)

Predictably, European countries dominate the top ten, interspersed with a few other major Western players when it comes to international diplomacy; namely, the US, Canada, New Zealand and Australia.

The only Asian countries to break the top ten were Japan, Singapore and South Korea.

Here are the weakest ranked passports in the world, according to how many countries they can access visa-free:

94)    Liberia (43)
95)    Burundi, North Korea, Myanmar (42)
96)    Bangladesh, Dem Rep of Congo, Lebanon, Sri Lanka (39)
97)    Kosovo, South Sudan, Yemen (38)
98)    Eritrea, Ethiopia, Iran, Nepal, Palestine, Sudan (37)
99)    Libya (36)
100)  Syria (32)
101)  Somalia (31)
102)  Iraq (30)
103)  Pakistan (29)
104)  Afghanistan (25)
