Citizens from 27 countries of the European Union and other states will be able to work in Moldova without a work permit. Such an initiative was made by the Minister of Economic Development and Digitalization Dumitru Alaiba.
The minister believes that this will increase the potential for economic development and will stimulate the investment attractiveness of our country and employment.
In addition to the 18 categories of foreigners already mentioned in the legislation, citizens of the EU countries, as well as citizens of the USA, Great Britain, Japan, Norway, Switzerland, Ukraine, Turkey, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Balkan states, etc. will be able to work without a permit.
“For example, when an investor wants to start a business in Moldova, he does not need to start his way by requesting a work permit from the Bureau of Migration. And if this person wants to come with a team to launch the business as quickly as possible, he must be able to do it simply, easily, quickly, and without bureaucracy”, Dumitru Alaiba said.
The liberalization of work permits for citizens of the European Union is one of the measures that the Republic of Moldova must implement after obtaining the status of a candidate country for joining the European Union, the Ministry of Economy notes.
