How Powerful your Passport is?

Passport is the necessary document for you to travel outside your home country and the power of your passport defines the status of your country in the world. For calculating the power of passport we got an index known as the Passport Index. The Passport Index ranks passports according to their “power”, defined around how many countries will let you in without a visa.

  • Visa Free Score
    Passports accumulate points for each visa free country that their holders can visit without a visa, or they can obtain a visa on arrival.
  • Passport Power Rank
    Passports are ranked based on their Visa Free Score. The higher the Visa Free Score, the better the Passport Power Rank.
  • Methodology
    The country list is based on the 193 UN member countries and 6 territories (Macao, Kosovo, etc.) for a total of 199.

Based on the above parameters here is the power rank of some major countries:
