It goes beyond a simple ranking of passports to provide you with an in-depth picture of your travel freedom, including which countries you can access with which type of visa, how your passport has changed over the last 16 years, how your passport compares to other passports, why your passport has the level of access it does, and which additional passports would improve your mobility.
