It is well-known that historically a great part of the Moldavian citizens have Romanian origin. It is not surprising that for many Moldavians who decide to settle down here obtaining the Romanian citizenship represents somehow regaining part of their identity. Neither that the majority of those who leave the Moldavian Republic for economic reasons, aiming to settle in another country, view Romania as the first choice because they accommodate faster given that we share not only the same language, but also innumerable cultural elements. After 1990, many more Moldavians therefore chose to settle in Romania. Bigger wages, university areas and even business opportunities, as well as the feeling of belonging determined many Moldavians to become Romanian citizens and to settle here.
