Pakistani passports are ranked as fourth worst in the world

According to the Henley Passport Index for 2022, the Pakistani passport is the fourth-worst in the world, maintaining its position from last year and allowing access to only 32 locations without a visa.

The index assesses 199 passports from across the world based on the number of visa-free places the holder can visit.

The International Air Transport Association, which maintains the world’s largest database of travel information, was used to compile the rating. The information was supplemented by continuous study by the Henley & Partners Research Department.

Pakistan was ranked fourth last in the 2022 rating, higher than the war-torn countries of Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan.

Afghanistan was ranked last on the list, with nationals having access to only 27 countries and the lowest visa-free score. Syrian and Iraqi passport holders could enter 30 and 29 countries, respectively.
