Currently, the U.S. has visa-free access or visa on arrival to 185 countries. The U.S. passport is the 6th best passport (tied with Austria, The Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Switzerland, and the UK).
As an American, it’s really a great opportunity to see what’s out there in the rest of the world. Unfortunately, I read a recent study that surveyed the population of international travelers from Australia, England, and the USA.
They found that 75% of Aussies travel outside the country. 67% of Britians travel outside of their country. But only 40% of Americans travel outside the country.
The U.S. has the 6th best passport, but only 40% of its citizens have traveled outside of their country. Do most Americans forgo having a passport because they live in the best country in the world?
First and foremost, the U.S. isn’t the world’s best country, especially if you’re a minority. Furthermore, the U.S. does not rank in the top 20 in the following categories: best to visit, open for business, social mobility, best place to travel alone, comfortable retirement, starting a career, and best place to study.
What’s Stopping Them From Getting an Amazing Passport?
Maybe most Americans don’t want to travel abroad because they trust President Trump’s opinion. For example, his gross stereotypical belief about Mexicans.
After living two years in Mexico, I can confidently say that it’s as safe as the United States. I’m not suggesting that crime can’t happen because it can. But it can also happen in any metropolitan area in the United States too.
There’s so many beautiful countries but Mexico is my favorite country abroad.
With a passport, you can experience this and more. It’s my intention for you to reach the finish line. So, get started with my 3 step process to achieve any goal in record speed.
I definitely want you to reach the finish line, but remember it starts step by step. So, until next time, I hope you’re reaching your finish line.
