If you are planning a trip to Moldova, then you'll have to do some research on its visa policy. After all, you may need to obtain a visa before departure. What is important to know here is that there are two categories of travelers, and what you have to do next depends on which category you fall into.
What if I am a passport holder of one of the visa-free countries?
According to the visa policy of Moldova, there are 103 countries and territories whose citizens are exempt from getting a visa as long as their stay in Moldova does not exceed 90 days. Basically, if you are among them and you travel for short stays (business, tourism, visiting relatives, etc.), you are not required to apply for a Moldova visa . So what is necessary to enter Moldova if you are a passport holder of one of the visa-free countries? A passport that remains valid for at least another 3 months beyond your intended period of stay. At the same time, if you are a European Union citizen or a citizen of Liechtenstein, Monaco, San Marino, Switzerland, or Turkey, all you need to have on you when you cross the border is a machine-readable ID card.
