COUNTRIES WHERE THEIR CITIZENS CAN VISIT THE MOST OTHER COUNTRIES WITHOUT A VISA


Most travelers from North America and Western Europe can visit a large number of countries without obtaining a visa. In fact, citizens from 23 different countries can visit at least 100 countries using only their passport. Except for Greece and Malaysia (ranked #23), all countries where the citizens can visit at least 100 other countries can visit the US without a visa (usually through the visa-waiver program).

There is a 4-way tie for #1: Denmark, Germany, the UK and the US. However, that does not mean that the citizens of these countries can visit all of the same countries without a visa. For example, Danes can visit Niger without a visa, but Germans, Brits and Americans can't. Despite the present dangers, Americans can visit Cote D'Ivoire without a visa (while Danes, Germans and Brits need a visa). But, Americans must have a visa for Brazil, which is a visa-free privilege not only from Denmark, Germany and the UK but also for all the other countries on this list except Canada, Japan and Singapore.
