Pakistani passport listed world’s fourth weakest

Pakistan has been ranked as having the fourth weakest passport globally, according to Henley & Partners. The ranking is based on the number of destinations Pakistani residents can visit without a visa. Pakistan stands at the 100th position out of 227 countries assessed, with access to 33 visa-free countries. Singapore leads the index with the most powerful passport, followed by Japan (now sharing the third spot with South Korea, Austria, Finland, France, Luxembourg, and Sweden). Europe is making a comeback, with Germany, Italy, and Spain rising to the second spot with visa-free access to 190 destinations. The USA and the UK have experienced a drop in rankings. The Henley Passport Index, regularly updated based on visa policies, shows a trend of increasing travel freedom over the years. Nationals of conflict-ridden countries like Afghanistan, Iraq, and Syria have the least travel privileges.
