World's most Powerful Passports in 2024 revealed: Check Pakistan's ranking here

Pakistani passport remains in dire straits in global rankings, standing as fourth weakest in the world, according to latest data shared by residence advisory firm Henley & Partners.

According to the Henley Passport Index 2024, the country of 240 million is placed at 106th position on the list - the fourth-worst in the index, with visa-free access to 34 destinations across the globe.

Since 2006, when the index was established, Pakistan's ranking has fallen from 79th to 101 — due to a lack of holistic policy-making to attract visitors and investors from abroad.

The other three passports that rank lower than Pakistan’s are war-torn nations Iraq, Syria, and Afghanistan.

In previous years, Pakistani passport holders got visa-free access to 31 nations but in the newly unveiled index, the Pakistani passport has added 3 more places.

Experts attributed the poor ranking to strained ties with several countries, deteriorating economic situation, and brittle sign agreements for free movement. Some of the war-ravaged countries including Yemen, Somalia, Palestine, Nepal, North Korea, and Libya have all been placed above Pakistan on the list.
