Abu Dhabi named the safest city in the world again: 8 consecutive times

20 Feb 2024

It's no surprise. The expensive and exclusive capital of the UAE filters people, allowing only those deemed worthy to live here and excluding those who cannot afford it. Unlike Dubai, where residency visas are issued for 2 years, Abu Dhabi only offers a golden visa valid for 10 years with property investments starting from $545,000. Therefore, the criminal element thrives in other cities. Let's delve into the details.

At the top spot

The online portal Numbeo has named Abu Dhabi the safest city in the world. The UAE capital has held this title since 2017, making it 8 consecutive times that Abu Dhabi has earned this distinction. This directly reflects the UAE's internal policies: authorities are implementing new safety standards and enhancing the quality of life for citizens and expatriates.

Others in the ranking

Abu Dhabi leads with a score of 86.8. Following are:

• Taiwan – 84.4;

• Doha – 84.0;

• Ajman – 83.5;

• Dubai – 83.4;

• Ras Al Khaimah – 83.3.

Cutting-edge technologies

Much of the global leadership in safety is attributed to the coordinated efforts of the police force and the use of new technologies. To maintain order in the city, the police meticulously train their personnel, who utilize artificial intelligence alongside traditional methods.

Abu Dhabi has been the safest city in the world for 8 consecutive years. Families move here for a new life by the sea, entrepreneurs open branches, and investors profit from real estate and reinvest.
