As I’ve written about in the past, I’m very fortunate to have dual citizenship — I have both a US and German passport.
- First, the number of countries that a country’s passport will get you visa free access to
- As a tiebreaker, the cost of acquiring a passport, including the number of hours of work required at minimum wage in that country to pay for it
With that in mind, what are the world’s five most powerful passports?
- United Kingdom
Interestingly all five get you visa-free access to 174 countries, so the tiebreaker is simply the cost to get a passport.
The article also talks about some interesting outliers, like the countries with the least and most expensive passports, the countries with the least and most visa free access, etc.
If you have the time, be sure to check it out. Interesting stuff!
If you could get an additional passport, from which country would it be?
I’d probably go with Australia.
