Countries like Turkey and the Central African Republic recently revoked their visa-free status to United States passport holders.
When it comes to global travel, not all passports are created equal.
Pakistan meanwhile is nowhere in the last even in the top 50 countries.
Other Asian passports in the top 20 include South Korea, Japan as well as Malaysia.
Singapore has the world's most powerful passport, said 'Global Passport Power Rank 2017' by global financial advisory firm Arton Capital.
Passports of 193 United Nations member countries and six territories - ROC Taiwan, Macao (SAR China), Hong Kong (SAR China), Kosovo, Palestinian Territory and the Vatican - are considered for the index.
Philippe May, managing director of Arton Capital's Singapore office, said the ranking "is a testament of Singapore's inclusive diplomatic relations and effective foreign policy".Читайте также: N.Korean Envoy Warns Nuclear War Could Break out at 'Any Moment'
Afghanistan came bottom of the list with visa-free access to just 22 countries.
"More and more people every year invest hundreds of thousands of dollars in a second passport to offer better opportunity and security for their families", he added.
The index was developed by Canada-based worldwide residence and citizenship advisory firm Arton Capital.
The British passport holds some clout, but if you thought it was the most powerful in the world then you are sorely mistaken.
In 2015, the United States tied for first place with the United Kingdom; previous year, it slipped to fourth place.
And American passports could get weaker still, as the European Parliament voted to end visa-free travel for United States citizens in March, the UK's Express reported.
