The UAE passport has once again strengthened its lead and ranked first in the world as the most powerful passport, with a new point added thanks to the visa exemption. The passport now grants access to 175 countries, including 119 without a prior visa and 56 with visas that can be obtained online or upon arrival, covering more than 88 percent of the world’s countries.
According to the most recent update of Arton Capital’s Passport Index, the UAE passport has also reduced the number of countries that require a visa to enter by 23 out of 198 countries accredited to the United Nations.
Despite the difficulty of obtaining a UAE passport, over 65,000 people have successfully secured a Golden Visa through the country’s renowned Residency-by-Investment (RBI) program and the launch of the Green Visa next month will see more investors benefit.
In the same context, Passport Legacy, a Switzerland-based investment migration firm announced its top three passports to invest in for Q4 2022. Based on the latest trends and developments this past year, Saint Kitts & Nevis, Dominica, and Grenada lead the way.
