Pakistan claims to be a great country but passport ranking snubs claim

CHITRAL: People of Pakistan have always been fed with the pep talk that their country is a great country, which has an atom bomb and it is defender of the Muslim world, etc etc. However situation on ground and the world passport ranking belies these claims. Pakistani passport is fourth from the bottom even worse than war torn Somalia and Yemen, and this position itself blatantly rebukes the claim of it being a respectable country let alone a great country.

Pakistani passport’s ranking remains unchanged as the Green Passport has once again been ranked as the fourth worst passport in the world.

Henley and Partners, a London-based passport guidance organization, has revealed this in its latest Henley Passport Index, which is based on the number of destinations passport holders can access without a prior visa.

According to the Henley Passport Index for Q3 2023, the Pakistani passport ranks 100th as its holders enjoy visa-free access to 33 countries.

As has been the case for the past several years. Only Syrian, Iraqi, and Afghan passports are worse than Pakistan’s passport. Meanwhile, the passports of Yemen, Somalia, Palestine, Nepal, North Korea, Libya, Kosovo, Sri Lanka, and Bangladesh have been ranked higher.

At the other end of the spectrum, Singapore sits at the top. Germany, Italy, and Spain follow Singapore at second place. Austria, Finland, France, Japan, Luxembourg, South Korea, and Sweden are ranked third. Let’s have a look at the 10 best and worst passports in the world.
