Visa requirements for Moldovan citizens

Visa requirements for Moldovan citizens are administrative entry restrictions imposed on citizens of Moldova by the authorities of other states. As of 1 January 2018, Moldovan citizens had visa-free or visa on arrival access to 110 countries and territories, ranking the Moldovan passport 48th in terms of travel freedom (tied with Montenegrin and Russian Federation passports) according to the Henley Passport Index. On 28 April 2014 Moldovan citizens were granted visa-free entry to 26 Schengen Area countries as well as Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus and Romania, countries that are applying the Schengen policy and also Monaco, San Marino, Andorra and Vatican City, countries that have no immigration control. Visa waiver applies only to holders of biometric passports. Moldovan passports are recognized by all countries of the world. However, in some rare cases, Moldovan citizens may be refused entry.
