The Henley Passport Index for 2022 places the Pakistani passport as the fourth-worst in the world, unchanged from a year ago and offering access to only 32 locations.

The Henley Passport Index ranks each of the 199 passports issued in the world based on how many countries their owners can visit visa-free.
The International Air Transport Association, which manages the largest collection of travel information in the world, provided the data for the rating, which was then further improved by the substantial and continuous study by the Henley & Partners Research Department.
Pakistan is only ranked higher in the just released rating than Afghanistan, which is in last place, and the war-torn Syria, Iraq, and Iraq.

It is clear that Pakistan has participated in a number of terrorist activities, such as crossing neighbouring borders and detonating explosives in the process. A well-known American travel blogger was recently gang-raped in Pakistan by her host and his friends after accepting an invitation from internet Pakistani friends. Not only this, they filmed her and asked for ransom.

A Hindu woman’s unborn child was beheaded in Sindh last month, with the victim blaming inadequate medical attention. The incident caused a stir online and raised concerns about the treatment of minorities in Pakistan.

As the passport with the lowest score for visa-free travel, Afghan passport holders can travel to just 27 places. Passport holders from Iraq and Syria are only permitted admission into 29 and 30 of the world’s least developed nations, respectively.
India, Tajikistan, Mauritius, and other nations from Asia are placed 87th overall, with access granted by their passports to 67 countries. Japan has taken the top slot, with its citizens having access to 193 places with their passports. Following Germany and Spain, whose passports have a visa-free score of 190, come Singapore and South Korea, whose passports grant access to 192 nations.

Most of the top-ranked nations are from Europe, including the US and the UK.

China shares the 69th position with Bolivia, and both countries’ passports grant to travel to 80 different places.

With its passport holders having access to 41 nations, Bangladesh is ranked 104th, and five ranks better than Pakistan.
