Not All Passports Are Created Equal, As This Map Will Tell You (INFOGRAPHIC)

Not All Passports Are Created Equal, As This Map Will Tell You (INFOGRAPHIC)

Not All Passports Are Created Equal

A passport from the United States allows its citizens free access to 172 other countries.

But not all travelers have such an overwhelming spread of choices: Residents of Iraq, for example, can access only 31 countries with their passport. Venturing away from Afghanistan? Your options dwindle to 28 countries.

You might say we've been taking our travel freedom for granted here in the U.S.

In this infographic map from the folks at GOOD, countries are color-coded based on the "power" of their passports. The darker in color, the more freedom that country's residents have to travel. Lighter orange colors mean residents can visit less countries with their passports. How powerful is yours?

See the full-size infographic here.
