Singapore Replaces Japanese Passport to Become The Most Powerful in The World

Singapore Replaces Japanese Passport to Become The Most Powerful in The World

In a recent update, Singapore’s passport has replaced Japan’s as the most powerful passport in the world. Singapore passport holders can enter 192 countries around the world without a visa.

But the good news is that Indian passport holders can enter 57 countries without a visa or get a visa on arrival, with India moving up five places to 80th.

A report published by the Henley Passport Index also revealed that after being at the top for five years, the Japanese passport has fallen to third place on the list. As a result, the number of places that passport holders can visit without a visa has fallen.

The report went on to state that the United States, which was in that position about a decade ago, also dropped by two digits to eighth place. However, the UK moved up two places to fourth place.

Here’s the list of top 10 powerful passports:
