When it comes to global travel, not all passports are created equal. But which one rules them all?
According to the Passport Index, that honor now belongs solely to Singapore thanks to a recent decision by Paraguay to remove visa requirements for passport holders of the Asian city-state.
Developed by international residence and citizenship advisory firm Arton Capital, the Passport Index is a free online interactive tool that sorts and ranks the world’s passports by their cross-border access.
It says holders of a Singaporean passport can now easily visit 159 countries, either visa-free or by gaining a visa on arrival.
Prior to Paraguay’s decision to remove visa restrictions, Singapore shared the number one spot on the Index with Germany, which has a passport score of 158.
