The UAE has been named as one of the safest countries in the world! According to the World Economic Forum (WEF), the UAE is the third safest country, behind Qatar and Finland, which took the top spot in the latest Travel and Tourism report.

The report said, “The UAE benefited from redirected demand as it was regarded as a “safe” destination; occupancy for the year increased 8 per cent. This is supported by its world-renowned air transport infrastructure (3rd) and positioning as a gateway for Europeans to Africa, the Middle East and Asia. It has created extremely effective branding campaigns (1st) and an enabling business environment for the industry's development, with strides in travel facilitation and the liberalisation of its visa regime (30th).”

Furthermore, the report added, “While the UAE does not have rich natural resources (95th), it has built a unique environment to attract both business and leisure travellers. From Expo 2020 Dubai to the construction of the Louvre and Guggenheim, the UAE is investing in and giving significant importance to the development of the T&T [Travel and Tourism] industry."
