This is the most powerful passport, NOT American, NOT British

Yes, if you are a German!

Most of us may believe that British or American passports are those which can get you to most of the countries in the world. In fact, German is the “passport champion” here with total 177 countries allow visa-free access, according to Henley & Partners’s Visa Restrictions Index of International Air Transport Association. Following right after Germany is Sweden with 176 countries allowing visa-free access. UK and US, stay on 3rd and 4th place with other European countries with 175 and 174 countries.

The difference between the top ones are not much, comparing with the lowest ranking country – Afghanistan. This country’s citizen can only access to 25 countries totally with their own passports.
