From a 27th rank in the same Passport Index rating carried by the tool in December 2016, UAE succeeded in achieving the 1st spot in just over the course of 2 years. Contrary to the initiative taken by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation termed as ‘UAE Passport Force’ to bring the UAE passport to number 1 position by 2021, the team achieved its target way earlier in 2018 and that is indeed a very honourable achievement for the authorities.
Thus, such exemplary achievements are continuously adding to UAE’s global withstanding making it not only a strong economy but also an equally strong developmental and humanitarian region. We, at zooma.ae, are proud and delighted of this achievement and are now certain that this will surely ascertain the investors’ trust in UAE’s real-estate market and its out-of-the-box developmental approach convincing them to make fruitful investments.
