The best passports UF

Travel & Leisure has an article by Cailey Rizzo about the passport to have:

It’s not just the color of the outside or the number of pages inside, as each country negotiates with others, some passports become more powerful. Whether citizens are able to flash their passport and breeze past customs, or if it’s easy to get a visa upon arrival, every single country’s passport has its own unique set of regulations.
Passport Index, which ranks the world's passports each year to identify which are the most powerful, released their most recent rankings in January of 2017. Several countries tie each other in the global access they provide their passport holders so, to get into the top 25, a country must rank at least as the sixth most powerful. 
Here are the 25 most powerful passports in the world:
