How powerful is Bangladeshi passport?
A new ranking has revealed that Bangladeshi passports across the globe did not amount to much as it ranked 88th in 2016 Passport Index. The ranking is based on three tiers, the first being the Visa-Free Score (VFS), which includes visa-free and visa on arrival privileges. The higher the VFS score, the better global mobility its passport bearer enjoys. The second tier includes Visa on Arrival (VOA), the more inclusive a country’s immigration is on the amount of VOAs they issue to arriving passengers, the better the score. Lastly, the United Nations Development Programme Human Development Index (UNDP HDI) is used as a tie breaker. The UNDP HDI is a significant measure on the country’s perception abroad. Based on these three tiers, Bangladesh scored a 37, meaning that holders of Bangladeshi passport can visit 37 countries without the need to apply for a visa. According to the Passport Index, Iran and Libya have also secured no 88 position, scoring 37. Both Germany and Sweden rank as the most powerful passports in the world as they both have a Visa-Free Score of 158. Last year, the United States and the United Kingdom shared the top spot. The US has now slipped to fourth place. British passports have slipped to second place, where they enjoy the same status as France, Spain, Switzerland and Finland. India secured 76th position in the 2016 Passport Index. The people of Afghanistan can only visit 24 countries without applying for a visa. Pakistan fares little better, with just 31 countries offering visa-free travel. The passport of the world’s newest nation, strife-torn South Sudan, only allows visa-free access to 36 countries.
