Japan is the country with the most powerful passport in the world
According to the Henley Passport index by global residence and consulting firm Henley & PartnersCitiens, Japan is currently the country with the most powerful passport on the planet. This "achievement" has helped the country of cherry blossoms surpass Singapore, ranked second with visa-free passports for 189 countries.
Compared to the January ranking, Germany holds the top position. But so far, this country fell to 3rd place with 188 visa-free countries

Ranked in 4th place are Denmark, Finland, Italy, Sweden and Spain with 187 countries and destinations.
Followed by 7 countries including UK, Austria, Luxemburg, Netherlands, Portugal, USA and Norway with 186.
Belgium, Switzerland, Ireland and Canada with 185 both hold 6th place. Australia, Greece and Malta are in 7th place with 183 countries.
In Asia, apart from Singapore, only Malaysia made it into the top 10 of the list with 180 visa-free countries.
Recently many changes in visa exemption issues in some countries cause the order of countries to change.
Typically, while exempting visas for Japanese and Singaporean nationals in February, Uzbekistan raised the requirement for a visa to French citizens on October 5. In the same month, Malaysia waived a visa for Korea
By not joining any of the new jurisdictions this year, the US and UK are unlikely to be able to regain the No.
1 spot they once held in 2015.
Meanwhile, Russia fell to 47th place, although Taiwan agreed to exempt its citizens from a visa in September.
The United Arab Emirates remains the biggest success story of this decade when it comes to freedom of movement. Countries in the Middle East increased from 62 in 2006 to the current 21st position. Moreover, the country also reached a visa-free agreement with Russia, which will take effect in the coming months.
Chinese citizens are exempt from visas at St. Lucia and Myanmar, currently at 71st, have risen 14 places since the start of 2017.
Kalin, President of Henley & Partners Group, commented on the remarkable results countries have achieved by working together with others to build a more connected and collaborative world.
Visa exemption for citizens of one country demonstrates the trust one country has over another. A country that is exempt from many countries for a visa not only shows the development of society in the country, but also shows its efforts to build diplomatic relations.
In the ranking of May this year, Japan overtook Singapore to become the most powerful passport holder in the world with 189 visa-free countries.
Previously, in the ranking in January, this country co-ranked with the UK in third place with 175 visa-free countries. In addition to attractive destinations, the humane life values of the Japanese are also what attracts international visitors to this country.
