In the year 2017, Singapore made headlines when an Arton Capital ranked its passport as the most powerful one in the whole world as part of its Global Passport Rank 2017 study. This was the very first time that any Asian country topped the list, displacing European winners and the USA among other regular contenders. Singapore was also subsequently ranked at number 4 by Visa Index with regard to the strength or power of its passport. A 2022 CNN ranking has Singapore on the top of the list of best passports to hold in 2022 since you can visit 192 destinations with the same. Singapore is tied with Japan at number 1 in this list.
