36 Passports with the Excellent Travel Perks
Every day, different people from different nations journey to new places. Their destination, their reason for the trip, where they reside and how much tax they are liable to pay their wages vary from country to country and from person to person.
It all depends, most times, on the nation and the passport.
A non-governmental organization that is involved in accruing properties for wealthy individuals made a ranking of countries depending on the strength and power of their passport. The ranking is made to show the real worth of a nation’s passport. It also took into consideration the places where the holders of these passports can travel to and how much attention they would receive on arrival, as well as the destinations the rich can journey to dodge the stringent levies.
After a thorough review of around 36 passports from different nations across the globe, it was found that the passport from Sweden has the highest worth. Nations like the United States of America, as well as Slovenia, are also on the list as they both sit in the 35th position.
One very crucial factor that goes into the determination of the worth of a nation’s passport is its policy on taxes. Policy on tax differs from nation to nation, and some nations would still get their citizens to pay levies regardless of where they are on earth.
For instance, citizens of countries like Ireland and Belgium can dodge the burden of levies as long as they work away from the country. Citizens of the United States, however, get to pay levies to the government irrespective of where they are in the world.
The government’s laws on tax seem to only have an effect on a little part of the demography. Other yardsticks of measuring the worth of a passport include permit free journeys and the possibility of dual citizenship, both important to low-earning foreigners and the rich citizens.
The countries where a citizen can journey to is almost exclusively determined by the passport of the nation. For instance, German citizens can travel to about 177 nations without requiring a permit on entry.
That is more than any other nation in the world. In contrast, only 25 nations would grant citizens of Afghanistan passage into their borders without requiring a visa. Citizens of the United States can also journey to about 174 nations in the world without requiring a permit on arrival.
