Ranking of Pakistani passport has improved significantly on Global Passport Index 2018.
Previously, it was ranked at 102 position out of 105 total reviewed passports by Henly Passport Index (Henley and Partners is a global citizenship and residence advisory firm based in Jersey).
Pakistan was the fourth worst, and only ranked better than Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria – although all three of them are war-torn countries. However the things seem to slightly improve now.
The factors that affect the ranking of passport are primarily socio-economic condition and political landscape of the country. Countries that are doing better on these fronts are usually preferred for visit while these who rank low on these parameters, often have people moving to other countries in search of better livelihood.
