Citizens of St. Kitts & Nevis and Moldova can now move freely between each others’ countries thanks for a joint-visa waver that was signed on Friday, March 3, 2018. The agreement was signed in London, UK by his Excellency Dr. Kevin M. Isaac, St. Kitts & Nevis’ high commissioner to the UK and Vilen Murzac, Charge d’Affaires of the Republic of Moldova.
Once the agreement is in place, citizens of St. Kitts & Nevis and Moldova will be able to travel visa-free between the two countries and remain for an uninterrupted period of up to 90 days or for several stays of up to 90 days during any 180-day period.
Both St. Kitts & Nevis and Moldova are small countries which grants them a certain ability to be nimble and responsive in diplomatic matters such as this. In September of 2017 the two countries met to have diplomatic discussions, and the visa-waver agreement is a direct result of those talks.
This is just the latest partnership from St. Kitts & Nevis whose government has stated their commitment to strengthening relationships with friendly countries to allow citizens greater ease of travel—both for business and pleasure.
St. Kitts & Nevis recently signed an agreement allowing citizens of India to visit the island nation visa-free, and in September 2017, the Caribbean country signed a similar agreement to the one with Moldova with Russia. In addition, St. Kitts & Nevis has signed similar agreements with 11 other nations over the past year.
Currently, St. Kitts & Nevis passport holders can enjoy visa-free travel to more than 130 countries around the world including countries in the European Union, the United Kingdom, and more.
