An Introduction to Moldova Citizenship-by-Investment

Launched in 2018, the Moldova Citizenship-by-Investment (MCBI) program was developed by the Government of Moldova in partnership with its service provider Henley & Partners and the Moldovan Investment Company (MIC). 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.
