  1. It is not the passport, but moral and ethical values of a nation that boost country’s credibility. E-passport will do nothing while the whole world is well aware of the mess our governments have created by following corruption since early days of Pakistan. They are not only corrupt themselves but they also made a large population of this country corrupt as well. Immigration around the world respects a country who is standing among progressive nations not the passports.
