Asian and European countries took the top positions while African countries took up a chunk of the bottom positions.

The newly released show an overall decline in the value of African passports over the past 10 years.

The report, which ranks passports based on their total visa-free score and data from the International Air Transport Association (IATA), blames this decline on political instability and conflict.

A Seychelles passport is the most powerful in Africa, for the third year in a row. It is followed by Mauritius and South Africa.
