Which Passports Allow you to Travel the World Freely

German Passport Einbügerung

As a Kenyan no-one needs to tell you that your passport can be a restriction to travelling. From my informal survey it seems with a Kenyan passport you can only visit EAC countries without issues that is only 7 countries in the whole world, not much. Well with some passports you can visit as much as 173 countries without requiring a passport.

Sometimes residence in a  country can also allow you to criss cross countries with your passport, one such example is the Schengen visa which allows you to visit 22 EU member states, namely: (Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden)

Bulgaria, Cyprus, and Romania are not yet full members of the Schengen area.

The United Kingdom and Ireland have chosen to maintain border controls, thus people holding the Schengen visa and a passport from a country that requires a visa, have to apply for the UK visa.

Here’s a list of passports that will allow you travel the world freely:
