Citizenship and Investment

Launched in the second half of 2018 the Moldova Citizenship-by-Investment (MCBI) program is the latest European citizenship-by-investment opportunity. It provides access to 122 destinations, including the countries in Europe’s Schengen Area as well as Turkey and Russia.

The MCBI program requires applicants to make a defined economic contribution to the country through the Public Investment Fund. In exchange, and subject to a stringent vetting and due diligence process, including thorough background checks, applicants and their families are granted citizenship.

To qualify for citizenship, the main applicant must be over 18 years of age, meet the application requirements, and make the qualifying contribution to the Public Investment Fund (PIF):

• EUR 100,000 for a single applicant
• EUR 115,000 for a couple
• EUR 145,000 for a family of four
• EUR 155,000 for a family of five or more
