J Thoendell stashed this in Travel
A passport from a country in good global standing is a powerful thing, allowing its holder to move across borders without dealing with the nightmarish bureaucracy of a visa application.
Arton Capital, a financial firm that says it “empowers individuals and families to become Global Citizens,” at least in part by connecting clients to citizenship-purchasing programs, has put together a ranking of the world’s passports that shows which pack the most punch. The ranking sorts countries by the number of other countries a passport holder can visit without a visa or by attaining a visa upon arrival.
