When it comes to the power ranking of passports around the world, a Turks & Caicos passport might not break the top 10, but we thought it would be worth taking a look to see which ones were deemed the best to have.

However, according to Passport Index, holding a UK passport makes you the the owner of the forth most powerful passport when it comes to travelling for 2018. That's unill Brexit next year though, so your guess is as good as any how the new list will appear.

The index was developed by international residence and citizenship advisory firm, Arton Capital and ranks all of the world's passports in terms of cross-border access, their 'visa-free score' and what countries you can get access to.

The top spot this year is Singapore with Germany in second, and Sweden alongside South Korea in third.

These are the top 10 passports in terms of power ranking:

  1. Singapore
  2. Germany
  3. Sweden, South Korea
  4. Denmark, Finland, Italy, France, Spain, Norway, Japan, United Kingdom
  5. Luxemburg, Switzerland, Netherlands, Belgium, Austria, Portugal
  6. Malaysia, Ireland, Canada, United States of America
  7. Austria, Greece, New Zealand
  8. Malta, Czech Republic, Iceland
  9. Hungary
  10. Slovenia, Slovakia, Poland, Lithuania, Latvia.

Well, on the bright side of things if you're fortunate enough to have a TCI passport you get to stand in the returning residents line on the left hand side of immigration which, let's be honest, is worth a spot on the list if you can collect your bags and get home a bit quicker.

And we all know the feeling when we see a visitor in the returning resident line.
