Pakistan has been ranked as 106th country in travel freedom – in a list of 109 countries – thus making it one of the worst passports in the world, said a report issued here.
The annual Henley & Partners Visa Restrictions Index, produced in collaboration with the International Air Transport Association, ranks countries according to the number of other countries that their citizens can travel to, without having to obtain a visa.
In 2014, Pakistan was ranked at 92, sharing the spot with Somalia. The last spot in the list at 109th rank is occupied by Afghanistan.
The index is produced in cooperation with the International Air Transport Association (IATA), which maintains the world’s largest database of travel information, and is published annually.
Germany and the UK, who have the joint highest score with visa-free access to 173 countries, rank in first place.
