These countries offer visa-free travel, visa on arrival for Pakistanis – News

Singapore and Japan have topped the list.

The Henley Passport Index recently released its quarterly report of the world’s most powerful passports, with Singapore and Japan topping the list.

The list was based on data from the International Air Transport Association (IATA), which analyses how many countries a passport holder can enter visa-free or on a visa-on-arrival basis. The index includes 199 passports and 227 travel destinations – including micro-states and territories.

Japan and Singapore have held on to their joint top spot, with each country offering visa-free access to 189 destinations.

UAE tops the list in terms of the biggest climber in the past 10 years. The UAE passport has jumped from 61 in 2009 to 20 in 2019 – making it one of the most powerful passports in the world, and the most powerful passport in the region.

According to another index, Passport Index, the UAE passport is the world’s strongest with 175 points, followed by Finland, Luxembourg, and Spain sharing the second spot jointly with 168 points. Denmark, US, South Korea, Japan, Italy, Germany and Switzerland are among the 11 countries listed jointly as third on the Passport Index.

The Passport Index, created by the Arton Capital, ranks passports based on the number of countries the holder can visit without first obtaining a visa or applying for one on entry.

Passports from the subcontinent

Looking only at the subcontinent countries, we find the Indian passport to be ranked at the 86th position, with a score of 58 points, followed by Bhutan at the 92nd spot with 52 points. Sri Lanka comes next on the 99th spot with 42 points. Pakistan stands at the 106th spot with 30 points. At the bottom of the list is Afghanistan, ranked 109th, with 25 points.
