The Republic of Moldova is part of the Eastern Partnership since its creation in 2009. Signing of the Association Agreement between the Republic of Moldova and the European Union, in 2014, stimulated the process of bringing the parties closer together in the political, economic and democratic fields. In the same year, the visa regime for short-term travel in the Schengen area was liberalized for the citizens of the Republic of Moldova. Within this exercise, the Republic of Moldova committed to comply with certain data security standards, starting with the documentation, border control, combating the illicit trafficking of goods and persons etc.
Following the signing of several international agreements, the citizenship of the Republic of Moldova offers the right of visa-free movement in over 120 countries of the world. As a result, the citizenship of the Republic of Moldova has also become attractive for dubious persons from outside the country who would like to take advantage of obtaining the right to citizenship.
