These Are The World’s Most Powerful Passports

These Are The World’s Most Powerful Passports

We love seamless travel here at Boss Hunting. Quite often we have huge flight times only to be met by an unenthusiastic immigration official at our destination making us wish we’d picked the other line. You’d be surprised how much your country’s passport can influence the minds of any official in that first second when you hand it over.

In collaboration with the International Air Transport Association, Henley & Partners have released their annual Visa Restrictions Index for 2016 that ranks countries in accordance with the travel freedom that their citizens enjoy giving us a list of the world’s most powerful passports.

Let’s see how yours fares against the rest.
