Pakistani passport holders face challenges when it comes to traveling internationally, according to the Henley Passport Index. Among 104 countries, Pakistan ranks 101st, allowing its citizens visa-free entry to only 34 out of 227 destinations. This is much lower compared to countries like France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and Singapore, whose passports offer more travel opportunities.
In South Asia, Pakistan is behind its neighbors. India is in a better position at 80th place, while Bangladesh is at 97th, Sri Lanka at 96th, and Nepal at 98th. This difference shows that people in the region have varying levels of freedom to travel internationally. The limitations of the Pakistani passport could pose challenges for its citizens in terms of travel, business, and global opportunities. To address these issues, diplomatic efforts may be needed to improve international relations, negotiate better visa agreements, and encourage economic and cultural collaboration. The Henley Passport Index highlights the importance of countries working together diplomatically, showing that nations with stronger passports benefit from more global opportunities and freedom for their citizens to travel.
