  1. I’d be curious to know what is the best 2-passport combo to get the most countries visa-free. My initial guess would be USA/Singapore? Or USA/Malaysia?

  2. This passport ranking index doesn’t align perfectly with the Henley passport index, and I am curious why the difference. Different time periods?

    Well, under this passport ranking index, the UK is going to pass up the U.S. before the end of this year.

  3. Hey Gary. Thanks for all the great content you put out. I’m a daily reader.

    With the website redesign you also changed the amount of content in the emails you send out. As one reading most of your emails from my phone, it sure was nice when the entire article was included within the email. The new format of just showing a preview in the email, forcing a click through to your site, is a bit of an annoyance. Any chance of going back to the old format?

  4. @Antonio,

    That would be US and US. Everyone wants to go to the US. Obama wants to leave the US.

    Canada is allowed in US lines, but that doesn’t change anything. It is Australia’s e-visa that is a pain in the butt.
