Countries offer Visa on Arrival to Pakistanis

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has overtaken Singapore and Germany as the country with the world's most powerful passport.

UAE passport holders can enter 167 countries without obtaining a visa prior to arrival, according to Passport Index, a list created by a Montreal-based financial advisory firm Arton Capital.

Right at the top of the passport rankings is the United Arab Emirates.

A UAE passport holder can also obtain visas from 54 countries upon arrival, said the Passport Index in its December 2018 report. Taiwan's passport holders may visit up to 131 countries without having to obtain a visa, an increase of 10 from past year.

It beat last year's number one, the Singaporean passport, which is joint second with Germany, which was also in this spot in 2017.

The ranking is somewhat misleading, however, because ties in individual ranks not accounted for in the overall rankings (14 countries are ranked in the top three places, for example).

Dubai leader Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum welcomed the news, tweeting: 'Congratulations to the UAE and its people and big thanks to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation's teams'. As well as the U.S, they are Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Luxembourg, France, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, Norway and South Korea. Pakistan's western neighbor Iran has achieved 42nd spot on the list with its citizens able to travel visa-free to 12 countries.

While the United Kingdom tied for fourth place with Belgium, Austria, Japan, Greece, Portugal, Switzerland, Ireland and Canada on holders being able to travel to 164 countries. Iraq retained its ranking as second worst at 32, though it improved by eight countries from the previous report, while Pakistan remained third worst with 35, despite seeing an increase of 10 countries for its passport. A Pakistani passport holder will have to apply for visa and go through a long process to get visa in 163 countries.

As reported 5.UA Ukrainian passport took 24th place in the spectrum of opportunities offered by its owner, according to the Global Passport Power Rank 2018.
