The Nigerian Passport Ranks Among The World’s Least Powerful

According to a ranking by Passport Index , Singapore is the country with the most powerful passport which enables its citizens to travel to the greatest number of countries (159) visa-free.

The Passport index ranking by Canada-based global consultancy firm, Arton Capital ranks countries based on the number of countries their passports can give them access to visa free.

“For the first time ever, an Asian country has the most powerful passport in the world,” Philippe May, managing director of Arton Capital’s Singapore office, said in a statement.

“It is a testament of Singapore’s inclusive diplomatic relations and effective foreign policy.”

Germany, Sweden and South Korea ranked 2nd and 3rd position respectively. The USA passport tied with Malaysia, Ireland and Canada for the 6th position.

Meanwhile, Nigeria ranks at 82nd which implies; citizens can travel to only 44 countries either without a visa at all or can have one issued on arrival.

According to the Index, Djibouti, Congo, Algeria, Liberia, Angola, Equatorial Guinea, Burundi and Cameroon are the African countries with a stronger passport than Nigeria.
