Iceland Ranks Fifth on Quality Index

Vala Hafstað

Iceland ranks fifth on a newly published Quality of Nationality Index (QNI), which objectively ranks the quality of nationalities worldwide. The country has never ranked this high since the QNI was first published in 2011.

The QNI explores internal factors (such as economic strength, human development, and peace and stability), as well as external ones (including visa-free travel and the ability to settle and work abroad without cumbersome formalities) that make one nationality better than another in terms of a legal status through which to develop your talents and business.

The index is the creation of Dr. Christian H. Kaelin, chairman of Henley & Partners, the global leader in residence and citizenship planning, and Dr. Dimitry Kochenov, professor of European constitutional law and citizenship at the University of Groningen, the Netherlands.

This year, France tops the list, followed by Germany, the Netherlands, Denmark, Norway and Sweden.
