On 5 November Moldova Citizenship-by-Investment (MCBI) programme has been officially launched at the 12th Global Residence and Citizenship Conference in Dubai. Hosted by Henley & Partners, this annual event is the largest conference focused on investment migration.
Earlier this year, Henley & Partners in partnership with its consortium partner, the Moldovan Investment Company won the public tender to assist the Government of the Moldova in designing, implementing, and promoting the much-anticipated MCBI program, which is now officially accepting applications.
The MCBI program requires applicants to make a defined economic contribution to the country through its Public Investment Fund. In exchange, and subject to a stringent vetting and due diligence process, applicants and their families are granted full citizenship rights that are transferrable without restrictions to future generations. They also gain a passport that facilitates travel access to 122 destinations around the world, including Russia, Turkey, and the countries in Europes Schengen Area. The Moldovan passport is in fact one of the highest historical climbers on the Henley Passport Index, having ascended an impressive 20 places since 2008.
