President and founder of Arton Capital, Armand Arton said that “The UAE is the fastest-growing passport in the history of passports.”

In an email statement, Arton continued that “for such a young country this is an exceptional achievement and all Emiratis should be proud of that. Rather than the need to look for second citizenships, UAE citizens already have the strongest passport in the Arab world and their mobility is rising. They should all be extremely pleased with that.”
