Marime Font

The number of Moldovans choosing to emigrate from Moldova has been dropping for several years, and reached a historical low in 2017 – 1,702 citizens notified the authorities on their intention to leave. 

According to data from the Public Services Agency (ASP), 2017 was the first year after 1995, when fewer than 2,000 citizens left Moldova for good.

In the first six months of 2018, 843 applications came in from the ones deciding to move in to other states.

The largest number of departures was recorded in 2000 – 9,128 citizens informed the authorities about emigrating and filled in all the procedures required under law.

The figures kept falling in the following years, but started to rise again in 2005. In 2007, the number of the ones resolved to leave almost reached the record of the year 2000 – 9,005 people.

From 2009 through 2015, over two thousand Moldovans were yearly leaving the country, as 2,634 applications were registered in 2016. Later, the number of departures dropped.

Since 1995, almost 130,000 Moldovans chose to leave Moldova for good.
