KABUL (Pajhwok): Afghanistan is at rock-bottom in terms of travel freedoms, says the first 2022 report by Henley & Partners.

Released on Wednesday, the Henley Passport Index is based on exclusive data provided by the International Air Transport Association (IATA), CNN reported.

Holders of the Afghan passport can travel to only 26 countries without requiring a visa in advance. The Iraqi passport holders can visit 28 destinations.
