It has raced up the passport ranking - previous year it didn't even feature in the top ten.

The Passport Index ranks in real-time the passports of the United Nations' 193 member countries and six additional territories.

Passport Index bases its ranking on the cross-border access a holder has.

Financial advisory firm Arton Capital releases the study every year on the strength of the world's passports based on the number of countries citizens can travel to without having to apply for a visa.

In the second position in 2018 was a passport from Singapore and Germany, which provide entry without a visa in 166 countries.

The Emirati passport had witnessed unprecedented progress globally in the past few years, reflecting the worldwide stature of the country, he said. The country moved from third to first place after four more countries granted visa-free access to citizens of the emirate.

It's been a steep rise to the top of the list as past year the UAE didn't even feature in the top ten. These principles have been an integral part of the UAE since its establishment in 1971.
