Moldova Procedures and Time Frame
Applications to the program must be made through the prescribed forms and must be accompanied by the appropriate fees and specific documents. In addition to the usual personal documentation, such as passport copies and birth certificates, the requisite documentation includes, for example, a police certificate confirming that the applicants have no criminal record.
The issuance of a certificate of naturalization under the MCBI program shall take a maximum of three to four months from the date on which the complete application is submitted, provided that the due diligence processes are carried out without difficulties.
Before an application is submitted to the government, all the relevant information provided (including the background of the applicant and any dependents) will be verified by one or more specialized due diligence service providers. Furthermore, the specific fees must have been received, and the source of all funds must have been verified.
Once all the above requirements have been satisfied and the final payments have been made, biometric data is collected, and an oath of allegiance is pledged. Citizenship will then be granted and the passport issued thereafter.
