The Czech Republic has the seventh most powerful passport in the world for 2018, according to an annual ranking system.
A recent study by Henley & Partners, a London-based consulting firm that specializes in citizenship services, rates world passports based on how much visa-free travel they entitle their owner to.
People carrying a Czech passport can easily enter 173 countries, along with Malta and New Zealand.
Singaporean and Japanese passports have been determined the most powerful in the world for 2018. The two countries overtook Germany from their 2017 rankings of fourth and fifth respectively to claim the number-one position.
Coming in third are the passports of France, Italy, Spain, Denmark, Finland, Sweden and South Korea. They all have visa-free access to 178 countries.
The British passport has remained joint fourth, while the USA has remained fifth on the list.
The rankings are published every year and are based on the number of countries a passport gives a person access to without the need for a visa.
