Pakistani passport among worst for travel: Survey

ISLAMABAD (TIP): A Pakistani passport is among the worst to travel on as the country’s citizens can only enter 32 countries without a visa, according to a survey. Pakistan shared its ranking with Somalia in the list of some 200 countries surveyed by Henley & Partners, beating only Iraq which ranked 92nd and Afghanistan, which came in last. India ranked higher than all three countries at 74. Many intervening positions were shared by several countries, showing India ranked much higher than other nations. The report said Pakistanis had access to only 32 countries without a visa, while Afghans could access just 28. The Visa Restriction Index 2013 was released by Henley & Partners to rank countries based on the visafree entry enjoyed by their citizens. The firm analysed visa regulations around the globe to determine the results. “Pakistan, Somalia, Iraq and Afghanistan remain in the bottom four places of the ranking, which means that citizens of these countries enjoy the least freedom of travel,” the firm said in a statement.
