Which Are The Best Passports To Have?

Of the many passports you can apply for, there are some that are better suited for travel which avoids mandatory visa applications.

When looking to renew passport for travel, keep in mind that your current passport requirements may differ for the countries you intend to travel to.

Luxembourg passport holders can experience visa-free access to 172 countries around the world. However, Luxembourg passport holders are subject to visa-on-arrival access in countries such as India, while Danish passport holders are not.

Denmark
Passports in Denmark have visa-free or visa-on-arrival access to 172 countries as well, including most of Europe and the Americas. Since Denmark is one of the richest countries on earth, their passport holders also enjoy unrestricted access to Europe’s borderless Schengen area.

These policies were called into question in 2011 when the Danish government proposed regulating travel around its borders to keep out “illegal immigrants and organized crime”.

The EU recoiled at the proposal, which a newly elected Danish government also canceled later that year.

The United Kingdom passports have been believed to be among the most valuable passports in the world, with 173 countries allowing visa-free access.

According to the Henley survey, the UK passport is on par with the winner of a three-way tie. However unlike Denmark, the UK is not a member of Europe’s Schengen area, which means British travelers must show their passport when entering mainland Europe.

UK citizens must also attain a visa-on-arrival for several eastern European nations, something some other passports on this list don’t necessitate.

Sweden
All Nordic countries enjoy outstanding visa-free travel options to almost anywhere in the world. With 173 countries open for visa-free travel, having a Swedish passport can be convenient for travelers due to its excellent reputation.

Unfortunately, Swedish passport holders are not able to travel to India visa-free, and they also enjoy less visa-free options than holders of the #1 passport do in both Africa and Southeast Asia.

Topping off the list is the Finland passport. It has been deemed the world’s most valuable passport for travel. It offers visa-free travel to 173 countries, which includes some virtually no other passport does.

While in a three-way tie with Sweden and the United Kingdom, Finland’s passport offers more frequently used visa-free travel options, including travel to India. With the Finnish passport, travelers can experience visa-free access to Vietnam, a notoriously difficult country to enter.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
