after a good night sleep, when I woke up and on the internet, I saw this news first thing in the morning, ohhh damn it hurts 🙁
- Pakistan is placed on 108th position on the Henley Passport Index, right above Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq
- Pakistanis have visa-free access to only 31 destinations across the world
Pakistan’s passport has been ranked the fourth worst in the world by a global index that grades travel documents from different countries on the basis of international mobility enjoyed by their holders.
The Henley Passport Index has exclusive access to data from the International Air Transport Authority (IATA). It compares the visa-free access of 199 different passports to 227 different travel destinations.
The index is updated quarterly and is considered the standard reference tool for global citizens and sovereign states when assessing where a passport ranks on the global mobility spectrum.
Pakistan is placed on the 108th position on the list, the fourth worst in the index, with visa-free access to only 31 destinations across the world. Only three other countries’ passports rank lower than Pakistan’s in the world which include Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan.
A Pakistani passport holder, as per the index, requires visas for 196 travel destinations across the globe.
Pakistan’s eastern neighbor India ranks 84th on the list, with visa-free access to 59 destinations across the globe.
Pakistan acquired its best rank in 2006, when it was placed on number 76 on the index.
Last year, it was placed on number 113.
I hope & pray, Pakistani passport improves in ranking sooner or at least during our lifetime, so that we can be proud of our green passport while holding it in our hand at the airport. InshAllah
