The Global Passport Index released by Arton Capital ranked UAE Passport as first globally for achieving the highest mobility score, with the passport allowing entry to 152 countries.

As many as 98 countries offer visa-free entry, 54 countries offer visas on arrival and 46 countries require a visa before entering the country.

New Zealand’s passport is the second strongest after the UAE, offering entry to 146 countries. Passport holders of Germany, Finland, Austria, Luxembourg, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, South Korea and Australia can enter 144 countries.

Ranked 47th in global power ranking, Qatar’s passport is the third strongest in the region. Qatari passport holders are allowed visa-free entry to 52 countries and visa on arrival in 39 countries; prior visa is required in 107 countries.

The UAE passport was ranked strongest for the first time in December 2018, when the country marked the “Year of Zayed”. It maintained its top ranking in 2019 but slipped to 14th in 2020. However, the passport regained its glory yet again in 2021, emerging the strongest globally.
