U.S. No Longer Has the Most Powerful Passports in the World

Making America great again hasn’t translated well to passport bragging rights.

Singapore was named the country with the most powerful passport in the world — while the US travel document has taken a tumble since President Trump took power, according to a new ranking.

Developed by citizenship advisory firm Arton Capital, the Passport Index sorts and ranks the world’s passports by their cross-border access.

Thanks to a recent decision by Paraguay to remove visa requirements for passport holders of the Asian city-state, they can now easily visit 159 countries — either without a visa or by obtaining a visa on arrival.

Until this decision, Singapore was tied with Germany at 158.

Germany now holds the spot for the second-most powerful passport, closely followed by Sweden and South Korea at 157.

The United Kingdom got a score of 156, while the United States got 154 — tied with Canada, Ireland and Malaysia.
