An Eastern-European nation steeped in rich culture and history, Moldova is among the most breathtakingly beautiful nations in Europe. Its landscapes feature varied terrains that span forests, rocky hills and vineyards, all of which offer spectacular experiences to nature lovers, while its cities offer a combination of Soviet, Ottoman and rustic architecture that lend the country a character uniquely its own.

While Moldova is still actively pursing EU membership, it has a long-term agreement with the EU that provides many of the economic and trade benefits of membership. In the Moldova Citizenship by Investment program, an applicant may benefit from visa free travel to over 120 countries including Russia and Turkey. Its economy is continually growing, with one of the most active service sectors in the continent and with a progressive legislative environment that is conducive to foreign investments. This makes Moldova one of the more convenient and promising choices for a second citizenship.    

Moldova citizenship by investment requirements include the investment and contribution to the Public Investment Fund (PIF).
