Nomad Capitalist, a passport rating agency, has released this year’s list in which the honor of the world’s most powerful passport has gone to the Gulf Muslim country of the United Arab Emirates.
Nomad Capitalist does not rate passports solely based on visa-free facilities. As do other institutions. Nomad Capitalist makes this classification based on five factors.
First, how many countries have visa-free services for a country’s passport? Its numbers are kept up to 50 percent. Secondly, what is the income of the citizens, which has 20 percent marks? At the same time, the impression of this country is the third world, the fourth is dual citizenship, and the fifth is personal freedom in this country, whose marks are 10 percent.
