The Pakistani passport has ranked as the fourth worst passport for international travel for the third consecutive year, according to the Henley Passport Index 2022.

South Korea and Germany tie in second place as they can travel to 190 nations while and Finland, Italy, Luxembourg, and Spain come in at third place and can travel to 189 nations.

Afghanistan's citizens rank at the bottom because they can travel to just 26 countries without requiring a visa in advance.

Social media users bemoaned Pakistan's inclusion in the worst ranked list.
