Pakistani Passport Ranked Among the Worst in the World in Henley Index 2021

The Henley Passport Index has ranked the passports of 110 countries on the basis of the number of destinations their holders can visit without obtaining a visa prior to travel, with information from the International Air Transport Association (IATA).

The Pakistani passport has been ranked at 107th out of 110 countries, offering its holders visa-free access to 32 countries.

The ranking has placed Japan in the number one spot on the index without taking into consideration the temporary and constantly changing COVID-19 travel restrictions. Theoretically, Japanese passport holders have access to 193 destinations around the world without a visa.

Singapore has been ranked second, followed by Germany and South Korea sharing third place.

Henley & Partners, the UK-based citizenship consultancy behind the index, said in a statement,

With extensive travel restrictions still in place globally, any level of international travel freedom remains theoretical.

  • When Imran Khan claims that he is leading a successful foreign policy and then these result.
    I wonder whether Imran Khan is in denial mode or the entire nation.
