ETIAS permits Moldovans to travel to all Schengen member countries for up to 90 days for business.

Moldovan ETIAS holders who are unsure which Schengen nation they want to work in may visit all Schengen countries until they select the one that best meets their needs.

Once a Moldovan passport bearer has determined which Schengen country they wish to work in, they must apply for a work visa at an embassy or consulate. ETIAS cannot be utilised for employment in Europe.

Whilst the ETIAS grants entry into all Schengen nations, work visas for Schengen nations are country-specific and must be obtained in person at an embassy.

Working on an ETIAS with a Moldovan passport in Europe may result in penalties, expulsion, or the revocation of the ETIAS visa waiver. This violation of the ETIAS terms may also make it more difficult for the Moldovan passport bearer to get another ETIAS in the future.

ETIAS holders from Moldova will be allowed to travel to all Schengen countries and explore various educational alternatives in the EU, such as conferences, seminars, and short-term courses.

A Moldovan student may attend a summit or congress in any of the member countries for up to 90 days within a 180-day period without requiring a visa.

Moldovans who want to study at a university in a Schengen nation will need to apply for a student visa. The same is true for students participating in other academic programmes that continue longer than the ETIAS’s 90-day limit for Moldovans.

Student visas are country-specific and must be obtained by submitting the Moldovan citizen’s passport and academic credentials to the embassy or consulate of the country in which they desire to study.

The requirements for Moldovans wishing to study in the Schengen Area may differ from one nation to the next.
