Modern and legacy political and military relationships, business investment, and other factors weigh on the power of one’s passport, making the list of least and most welcoming countries globally highly dependent on your citizenship. For example, a German passport holder gains access to more countries than travelers on Chinese or Senegalese passports. However, that same German passport holder cannot visit Equatorial Guinea without a visa while a Chinese passport holder may enter.

  • No matter your nationality, 14 countries will welcome you without a visa, making these countries the “most welcoming”, according to the Arton Capital's Passport Index.
  • The list of most welcoming countries is dominated by African nations. Despite visa-free access, only four—Cote d'Ivoire, Maldives, Mozambique, and Uganda—are relatively frequently visited by tourists. Each has more than 1 million international tourist arrivals per year, which ranks them among the top 100 destinations in the world.
  • On the flip side, think twice before booking tickets to Afghanistan, North Korea, Somalia, Syria, or Turkmenistan without a visa or other special documents (such as a diplomatic mission). You could add Angola to this club as well; only citizens of Namibia may enter without a visa or other official permission.

US Imports of Steel and Aluminium: Tariffs Perspective

The import value of steel articles has declined twofold in the last two years, yet remains 32 percent greater than in 2009...

Global Entrepreneurship Index 2018

Ecuador has the world's highest share of nascent entrepreneurs per capita at about 30 percent of the population. This measure is known as total early-stage entrepreneurial activity (TEA). But, does this mean that Ecuador is more entrepreneurial than the United States, which has a TEA of only 14 percent? The answer depends on how we define “entrepreneur”.  One key global economic growth driver is the ability of an entrepreneur to bring a concept to market, adding to national income, providing new goods and services, and creating jobs. In doing so, innovative entrepreneurship contributes to the foundation of a stable and civil society. By...

Top Vehicle Manufacturers in the US Market, 1961-2016

Over the last three years, car sales in the US market have set new all-time records and included a collection of manufacturers that extends well beyond the American classics. In 2015, vehicle sales in the US reached nearly 17.5 million units, a growth of 5.7 percent from 2014 and 25,000 more vehicles than the record setting sales in 2005. The year 2000 marked a turning point in the US auto industry: it was the last year that General Motors and Ford Motor Company combined made up at least 50 percent of the US market share. GM’s share of the US market has decreased almost 3 times since its peak of 50.7 percent in 1962, falling to 17 percent in...
