Henley & Partners ranked Pakistan as 91st in its Visa Restriction Index 2013. The index ranks countries according to the travel freedom their citizens benefit from.


It was created by Henley & Partners to rank countries based on the visa-free entry their citizens have. They analysed visa regulations around the globe to determine the results.

Pakistan shared its ranking with Somalia, beating only Iraq which ranked 92nd and Afghanistan, which came in last place. India ranked higher than all three countries at 74.

The report said that Pakistanis had access to only 32 countries without a visa, while Afghanis could access just 28.

Finland, Sweden and the United Kingdom tied in first place as their citizens can travel to 173 countries, visa-free.
