The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is the nation with the strongest passport as we begin a new year, according to the most recent passport index released by global citizenship financial consultancy firm Arton Capital for the first trimester of 2024.
The United Arab Emirates continues to lead the list of most powerful travel documents with a mobility score of 180.
Passport holders from the United Arab Emirates are able to enter 130 countries visa-free and 50 countries where a visa is needed upon arrival.
According to Gulf Today, Arton Capital stated that the UAE’s favorable diplomacy has made a substantial contribution to the strengthening of its passport.
Several nations, including the Netherlands, Germany, Spain, France, and Italy, hold the second spot on the list with a mobility score of 178, meaning they may enter 178 countries.
In the interim, Sweden, Finland, Luxembourg, Austria, and Switzerland have access to 177 nations.
Conversely, Pakistan has cemented its position as one of the nations at the bottom of this ranking.
The Pakistani passport is the fifth least powerful travel document in the world, with a mobility score of 47. Of all the nations in the world, only eleven allow visa-free entry to holders of a Pakistani passport.
