Posted by Imogen Searra on 2 October 2019

The South African passport, affectionately known as the Borewors Book and Green Mamba has moved up a spot to the 53rd most powerful passport in the world. We can officially travel to these 100 countries visa-free.

1. The Bahamas, Caribbean

South Africans can swim with pigs and nurse sharks and dive in the Bahamian crystal clear water, visa-free.

2. Israel, Middle East

Israel is teeming with culture, history and incredible food. You can visit the Dead Sea, the Wailing Wall and so much more visa-free in this Middle Eastern country.
