    Dubai: If you’re British, Finish or Swedish, congratulations — your passport is ranked best in the world and means you can travel to more countries visa-free than of the holders of any of the other 215 passports globally.
    But if you’re from Iraq or Afghanistan, your passport means you’re stuck with travel documents that are the least accepted globally.
    The rankings are produced annually by Henley and Partners, a global consulting firm with offices around the world, and in conjunction with IATA, the International Air Transport Association. There are 218 different passports issued by political entities globally, and it’s theoretically possible that any nationality can travel to each of the 217 passport-issuing places. But visa restrictions mean having to apply in advance before you travel. The survey ranks how different passports stack up when it comes to ease of travel — without having to apply in advance — and getting visa on arrivals.


    According to the survey, UK, Sweden and Finland passport-holders can travel to 173 countries easily.

    Next comes the US, Denmark , Germany and Luxembourg, equally with 172 countries allowing easy access. Belgium, Italy and the Netherlands are joint third, while Ireland, Canada, France, Japan, Norway, Portugal and Spain are joint fourth.
    Citizens of the UAE have a passport that is ranked joint 56th, along with Palau and Suriname. Saudi Arabia is ranked 64th.

    India is ranked joint 74th, on par with Uzbekistan and the Dominican Republic, with 52 countries allowing for ease of access. Bangladesh is ranked 85th, equal to Burundi, Ethiopia and North korea. And Pakistan? It is ranked joint 91st, on par with Somalia, just ahead of Iraq and Afghanistan.:lol::lol::rofl::rofl::rofl:

    Your IT challan is your passport. If it reflects a taxable income of over 15 lakhs/annum, you'll easily get visa to any country.

    Also, so much for China being Pakistan's "all-weather friend." Indians enjoy visa-free entry into HK/Macau, whereas Pakis don't. From HK, to get a visit visa to Guangdong (to visit factories, etc.,) is piece of cake. Getting a Singapore 30-day visa is piece of cake for Indian passport holders (no interview, agency can handle the application, and you get an e-Visa). It's as tough as getting US visa for Pakis (who need to visit embassy for visa sticker). Getting Iran visit visa is equally piece of cake if you're an Indian Hindu/Sikh. There's a consulate right here in Hyderabad. My cousin has been to Moscow, and it was quite easy for him. EU Schengen tourist visa is piece of cake if you show your IT returns of over 10 lakhs taxable income (which most Indian urban middle-class families have). Most Asian countries have VOA for Indians.

    Of course khushi hoti hai, :happy: But Pakistan is nowhere near India in any sectors and because of them India's reputation is going down in western media. And i hate terrorists as much as you do.

    I'm a little sad cause UAE and Saudi Arabia are ahead of India. India has a lot of potential bhai

    I absolutely agree with @Glint on this one, BW. Khushi ki baat nahi hai. We can do much better than 74th place.
