Visa Requirements for Pakistani Citizens
Pakistan is one of those few countries that have progressed in the backward direction over the past few years instead of moving forward. A few years back, Pakistan was considered a developing country with a not very strong yet stable economy and peaceful nation.
However, in the past recent years, Pakistan has emerged as an extremist nation on the face of the earth because of terrorism and extremism on the rise in the country.

Today, a very restricted number of countries allow Pakistani national citizens to visit their countries visa-free. All other nations have very strict and rigid laws for the Pakistani nationals.
