Pakistani passport ranks 102nd in terms of travel freedom according to the Henley Visa Restrictions Index – something that causes us Pakistanis a lot of trouble and hassle when traveling with our “Green” passports.
I was looking for destinations that we, Pakistani Passport holders, can just get up and go to! You know the last minute plans when you don’t have enough time for visa processing and all. So, I looked up the list on Wikipedia, I saw countries that I had never ever heard of (except only a few)!
But while researching, I came across this unknown list of countries! It turned out that we can visit some beautiful destinations without going through the tedious visa processes!
Qatar recently introduced On-Arrival Visa for Pakistani citizens. And since I have been living in Qatar for the last 14 years, I will do a detailed post on why you should visit Qatar -very soon!(so watch out for that!)
In the meantime, I decided to compile a list of countries that Pakistani Passport holders can enter either without a Visa or get a Visa on Arrival.
This blog post is based on the information about visa requirements for Pakistani Passport Holders from WikiPedia as of Oct 1, 2017. The Visa requirements keep changing so please refer to the updated information before making your travel plans.
There are also certain specific document/cash requirements for visitors to be eligible for ‘Visa on Arrival’ for certain countries, so please read the details or check with their embassy before booking your tickets.
So, let’s begin!
