ISLAMABAD: Despite Pakistan’s lower ranking in the Henley & Partners Passport Index, Pakistani citizens still have access to travel to more than 40 countries without the need for a visa, under certain conditions.
According to a document from the interior ministry, Pakistan has visa abolition/exemption agreements with as many as 48 countries as of December 12, 2023. This information was shared by journalist Zahid Gishkori on social media platform X (formerly Twitter) on Sunday.
The document specifies that a three-month visa period applies to short-term or official business visits, while members of diplomatic/consular missions and their families are eligible for visas for the entire period of their assignment.

Although the Pakistani passport was ranked 101st in the Henley & Partners Passport Index, this agreement allows Pakistani citizens to enjoy visa-free travel to numerous destinations. Comparatively, the Indian passport was ranked 80th in the same index.
This visa exemption agreement provides Pakistani citizens with more opportunities for international travel and facilitates diplomatic and business relations between Pakistan and the countries involved.

Visa-Free entries!
