What do I need to know before retiring in Moldova?

Answer this Question

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Moldova, they said...

"To retire in Moldova it is advised to research the local laws from the Migration and Asylum Bureau at www.mup.gov.md. It is also important to find out about the cost of living, healthcare and entertainment options in Moldova. It is vital to secure a valid residence permit in order to stay permanently in the country, and to register with the Immigration Service to have access to all public services. Additionally, you should find a good local doctor and arrange for sufficient medical insurance. Additionally, it is important to consider visa requirements for travelling in and out of the country, and any additional visa requirements for non-residents. Finally, you should become familiar with the Moldovan culture and lifestyle in order to ensure a smooth transition into the country," said a member in Moldova.
