Moldova Visa Policy

The government of Moldova Republic has an active immigration law that regulates the entry and exit of foreign nationals who visit for tourism, Business, pleasure, study, or any other purpose. 

Under this law, certain nationalities can visit Eastern European countries for tourism and business without visas due to bilateral agreements signed with their countries. 

However, visitors who are from somewhere other than these countries must get a visa from a Moldovan foreign mission or an online e-visa before they can enter Moldova.

 The only passports accepted by the government are machine-readable or, in some cases, biometric national ID cards issued by EU countries, Monegasque, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Turkey, and Suriname. ID cards and passports must be valid for at least 3 months beyond the visitor's intended stay in the country.

Key Information About The Moldovan e Visa

Not For Transit: The first thing you should know about this online Visa is that it cannot be used for transit, unlike the ones issued by other countries. If you will travel to a third country through Moldova and plan to wait a few days in the country before continuing your trip, you must apply for a transit visa separately. There are two types of transit visas; one for 24 hours and the other for 5 days.

Present A Copy At The Port of Entry: When making the trip to Moldova, you should endeavor to go with a copy of the e-visa, as the border control officers will request it at the entry port.

Use The Same Passport: It is very important that you travel with the same passport you used for the visa application, not a different one. If you use a different passport, you will be denied entry.

Apply Early: It is in your best interest to submit your application at least 72 hours or even more before your trip to Moldova. Early application will protect you from the risk of changing your itinerary or canceling your plans altogether.

Special Documentation For Minors: If you are traveling with a minor, you need special documents like a birth certificate to prove your relationship if the child is yours or Parental proof of consent if the child is not. These checks were put in place to stop child trafficking.
