Albanian passport ranks 43rd in the global ranking

UAE passport ranked most powerful globally

People who hold the passport of this country can travel to 167 countries without the need of a visa. In equal footing with holders of Icelandic and Maltese passports, travellers can enter 162 countries without a pre-arranged visa.

Taiwanese hold the world's 28 most powerful passport, an increase of two spots from its previous ranking on Arton Capital's Passport Index report a year ago. The Index is a global benchmark for classifying worldwide passports and reflects the world's view on the power and impact of passport.

The UAE, under the leadership of President Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, has surpassed all expectations after accomplishing this achievement, according to the UAE official news agency WAM.

In a new historic achievement, the UAE passport has become the strongest passport and now ranked first globally. As well as the U.S, they are Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Luxembourg, France, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, Norway and South Korea.

In the Middle East, the highest ranked aside from the UAE, was Turkey at No. 90. Belarus shared the 54th position with Saudi Arabia and Bolivia.

Other weak passports include those from Iraq (32 countries), Pakistan (35 countries), Syria (36 countries) and Somalia (38 countries).

"We continuously compare the passports of 193 countries and 6 territories of United Nations members and work to collect data directly and continuously, all through publicly available information, government sources and global bodies".

Meanwhile, Pakistan's neighbor India has been ranked 66 and its passport holders can travel to 25 countries visa-free.

Eleven countries tied for third place with their citizens able to access 165 destinations without a visa.

The positive impact of ease of travel not only makes it possible for UAE nationals to travel freely for tourism, but also has economic, developmental and even humanitarian benefits, by facilitating trade and economic investment for individuals and institutions.
