Global Passport Ranking, 2020

It’s not or British or American. Japan’s passport is now the world’s most powerful, according to CEOWORLD magazine’s Global Passport Ranking for 2020. This was followed by Singapore, South Korea, Germany, Italy, and Finland.

The United States ranked No. 21 in the 2020 index, with 184 visa-free countries. And the worst?

Afghanistan finished the bottom of the Global Passport Ranking, with just 26 countries granting Afghans entry without obtaining an advance visa.

Global Passport Ranking, compiled by the CEOWORLD magazine, ranks the passports of 193 countries and six other territories by counting the number of countries each passport can access without an advance visa. The six territories include Taiwan, Macau, Hong Kong, Kosovo, the Palestinian Territories, and the Vatican.
