Strength of its passports
As an entrepreneur or businessperson from the Middle East, it’s likely that you have experienced the challenges that come with conducting business internationally.
Running a company from your home country leaves you contending with multiple time zones, variable exchange rates, worldwide political and economic uncertainty – but sometimes these hurdles can be less difficult than tasks such as attending meetings that have been arranged at short notice, capitalising on speaking opportunities, or making the most of face-to-face meetings. This is particularly the case when your citizenship does not afford you certain freedoms – including travel benefits. In practice, you could think of this as the strength of your passport: the document that confirms your citizenship and nationality.
