Sweden has world’s most powerful passport

Out of 199 countries, the Scandinavian country came out on top, followed by Belgium, Italy and Spain. The Nomad Passport Index found that Swedes can visit 176 countries without a visa, and have the ability to work abroad without having to pay tax at home. The Nordic nation also received top marks in terms of personal freedoms, with citizens enjoying free speech, a free press and some of the lowest incarceration rates in the world. The Nomad index ranks the value of citizenship in and, by extension the passport of, 199 countries and territories in the world based on five factors: visa-free travel, taxation, perception, dual citizenship and overall freedom.
