Earlier this week, Singapore hit the headlines for having the world's most powerful passport. According to the Passport Index, holders of the Asian city-state's passport are able to visit 159 countries visa-free or through visa on arrival. It was followed by Germany, Sweden and South Korea at the top of the rankings.
The countries at the bottom of the index did not attract as much coverage as the ones at the top. The following infographic shows the passports that won't get you far with Afghanistan rock bottom of the index. Holders there are only able to visit 22 different countries without the hassle of visas and Iraq and Pakistan aren't much better, with 26 each.
This chart shows the number of visa free countries passport holders can visit in 2017.
