look at this graphic.
Have you had visa hassles preparing for your summer holiday?
Two-thirds of global travelers need paperwork to tour foreign countries.
More than a simple grant of access into a country, your passport is a reflexion of geopolitics, relationship between nations and a country's stature relative to the rest of the world.
You are wrong if you think that the US passport is the world most powerful :
Finland, UK and Sweden grant more visa-free access than the US (one more!)
How about Ethiopia ? an Ethiopian passport allows you to get visa-free to 46 states. obviously, war-torn countries such as Afghanistan or Iraq, Somalia rank at the bottom line.
even with a Chinese passport, whom most of folks consider the next super-power, you could not enjoy many countries...
Consider Israel, the most powerful nation in the entire Middle East and Africa : grants you 144 visa-free access !!!
Africa ? a dead zone...hno:
