Pakistani passport ranks worst once again

The Pakistani passport once again ranked the fourth-worst, one place below Yemen and three steps above Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan, in the world, according to the most recent Henley Passport Index. Pakistan’s travel document stands at 109 on the index and grants free access to 32 countries only.

As the world recovers from COVID-19, Japan, Singapore, and South Korea have the most powerful passports, reversing pre-pandemic rankings dominated by European nations.

A Japanese passport, which stands at the top, grants free entry to 193 countries, one more than Singapore and South Korea passports. Russian travel documents rank 50th, allowing easy access to 119 countries. China ranked 69th with access to 80 countries, India ranked 87th, and Afghanistan’s passport is the least useful, granting access to only 27 countries.
