The Jordanian nationality was ranked 10th among Arab countries, according to the Henley & Partners Kochenov Quality of Nationality Index (QNI).

In the recently-released report, GCC nationalities were ranked best with the Emirati nationality ranked first, followed by Kuwait, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Oman.

Jordan was also preceded by the north African countries of Tunisia, Morocco and Algeria and occupied the 130 place out of the 168 countries ranked in the metric.

It is not a surprise that the last three spots in the Arabic ranking are taken by Yemen, Syria and Iraq as they their global rank is 161, 162 and 165 respectively.

Globally, the French nationality topped the rank, followed by the German, Icelandic, Danish, Dutch and the Norwegian in the fifth place.

Although the Channel Islands is a group of British dependency islands off the coast of France, passport-holders do not benefit from the UK’s 13th place, as their nationality was ranked as the world’s last.

The QNI is a global annual ranking of the quality of nationalities worldwide. It ranks nationalities according to internal factors, such as economic strength, human development, peace and stability, and external factors such as visa-free travel and the ability to settle and work abroad without cumbersome formalities which make a nationality better than another.
