In One Chart: The most powerful passports in the world (and the least powerful)

For the third year in a row, the German passport is the most powerful in the world, giving its citizens the freedom to travel to 176 countries without visas.

Sweden held onto its second place spot for two years in a row with 175 countries followed by Denmark, Finland, Italy, Spain and the U.S., all of which tied for third with 174 countries.

Henley & Partners, a global citizenship and residence advisory firm, this week released its Visa Restriction Index for 2017, which ranks each country’s passport based on visa-free access. There are a total of 219 countries and territories so the maximum that a country can score is 218 as one doesn’t need a visa to come home.
