      However, visitors who are from somewhere other than these countries must get a visa from a Moldovan foreign mission or an online e-visa before they can enter Moldova.

       The only passports accepted by the government are machine-readable or, in some cases, biometric national ID cards issued by EU countries, Monegasque, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Turkey, and Suriname. ID cards and passports must be valid for at least 3 months beyond the visitor's intended stay in the country.
