THE MOLDOVA CITIZENSHIP PROGRAMME

PROGRAMME ON HOLD

Moldova is one of the lesser known Baltic countries, and officially known as the Republic of Moldova, is named after the Moldova River.

Moldova’s Citizenship By Investment (MBCI) Programme was launched in 2018, but is not yet open to investors. We have had many clients asking about the programme, as well as that of Montenegro, and as such are including the information.

Acquiring CITIZENSHIP in MOLDOVA

International relations between Moldova and the EU are currently shaped by the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP), an EU foreign policy instrument dealing with countries bordering its member states. Moldova is not yet an EU member, however, the EU is developing an increasingly close relationship with the country, which goes beyond cooperation, and aims at gradual economic integration and a deepening of political cooperation. The EU has opened an office in Chişinău (the Moldovan capital). On 24 January 2011 Moldova officially received an “action plan” toward the establishment of a visa-free regime for short-stay travel from the EU’s Internal Affairs Commissioner (for source click here). Moldova gained independence in 1991 and became a member of the UN in 1992.
