Singaporeans love to travel – that’s a given. And now it seems we’ve got even more reason to do so now that our passport is considered the most powerful in an international ranking. Along with Germany, Singapore now tops the Global Passport Power Rank 2017, published by Arton Capital’s Passport Index.

Singaporeans can now get a visa-on-arrival in Ukraine for up to 15 days, raising the Republic’s score by one to 159, Arton Capital said in a press statement on Tuesday. Singapore was ranked second before this change.


While Germans can travel to 125 countries without a visa, holders of a Singapore passport can travel to 122 countries without a visa. However, Singapore beats Germany with a visa-on-arrival score of 37 to 34.
