The citizens of Luxembourg have the strongest passport in the world. According to the latest study by consulting firm Nomad Capitalist, as republished by UK national newspaper The Independent. Passports from 199 countries were screened for the study. The Luxembourg passport has moved from 10th to 1st place in just the space of one year.

With the Luxembourg passport, it is possible to travel without a visa to 177 countries. In addition, residents of Luxembourg can obtain this passport by keeping their nationality, which is presented as another advantage by the study. Moreover, the passport “has an excellent reputation”. People who travel with them in general lose very little time during identity checks.

As far as concerns other passports, for example, the United Kingdom dropped from 16th to 22nd place in 2018 because of concerns about the Brexit. The US passport continues yet again to occupy 35th place.

Afghanistan came in very last. Its citizens can only enter 24 countries without a visa.
