Moldova now joins the ranks of countries offering investment citizenship programs to international investors. Now with only a contribution of EUR 146,300 you can get Moldovan citizenship, and enjoy the benefits of local infrastructure and visa-free travel in Europe.
Get investment citizenship in Moldova
You can become a full citizen of Moldova within just 3 months after the full application package is submitted to the Moldovan authorities. The two main elements of the requirements are a non-refundable contribution to the Public Investment Fund of Moldova, and a strict due diligence. In your application, you can include your spouse, dependent children under 29 years, and dependent parents above 55 years. The due diligence is compulsory for everyone older than 16 years included in the application, and the inclusion of each family member also raises the amount of the required contribution and the other fees.
Enjoy the benefits of Moldovan citizenship
The Moldovan passport grants you visa-free access to the member states of the Schengen zone in Europe, Russia, Turkey, and a number of other countries around the world, making 121 countries in total. Moldova is also a member of various international organizations, and intends to soon become a candidate for membership of the European Union.
Apart from that, Moldova offers a continental climate, stable environment, a growing economy, and an impressive digital infrastructure (including mobile services and internet speed). The local language is Romanian (termed Moldovan), but locals usually speak English as well.
