Top 7 most useless African passports you should put down

For many people in the world, the access to reliable and easy transportation systems from one place to the other is always a top priority. Unfortunately, travelling outside of their countries is a hectic and unpredictable ride especially for black people.

Many countries are working hard to reduce the level of stress that comes with travelling thus allowing visa-free access to certain passport holders.

Every year, based on the number of visa-free regions and countries a passport can access, Henley and Partners conduct a survey and produces a passport index that ranks the most powerful and least powerful passports in the world.

According to the index, the top 5 most powerful African passports currently are:

1. Seychelles | 2018 global rank: 25th | Visa-free access to 152 destinations
