Travel restrictions based on country of origin

I know Americans cannot travel to countries, that say, a Brit can. But even Brit's are restricted from some nations. Is there a country who's residents can travel freely throughout the world?


If there isn't one, what country has the least trouble? What countries residents can get into (and out of) Iraq, Iran, Saudi, Kuwait, Libya, Egypt, The 'Stans, yet still be able to get into the US, Australia, all of Europe, Russia etc? Does such a place exist?

What countries are those, that Americans cannot travel to? I know that getting a visa for Iran, for example, can be quite tough for some nationalities at the moment.

My Finnish passport should get me visas to all countries you listed, except maybe Saudi-Arabia. Do you plan to change citizenship?

Denmark, Sweden, and Finland #1? Am I reading that right? They have 173 countries that you can travel to without a visa? That seems strange.

Note: The score means the number of countries citizens of that country can travel to without a visa.

Without visiting every country's foreign office website it's hard to say but it sounds about right. I was surprised to see Germany ranked so highly though :p


It's also worth remembering that there's roughly 200 (the number varies depending on who you talk to) countries so if the ones you want to visit are the 27 with restrictions.....

I also suspect that war/civil unrest zones cause more restrictions than visa requirements.

I'm not sure I'd wish to travel some of those countries...risk out weighs benefit for me. There's still a lot of the world to visit that has minimal risk attached.

I'm also facinated by Mesopotamien history... but people trying to kill me would turn me off and that's a shame.

Good luck finding the 'perfect' passport country...









oh hang on...I'm already there.

Not sure what Nathan has...been awhile since I read it. Don't think it would make much difference

You are probably right. Stupid governments and their squabbling.
