From the 28th of April, 2014 Moldovan citizens with biometric passports can travel to the Schengen area without visa, and stay for 90 days within a 180-day period.
Moldovan citizens with older passport (non-biometric) should contact the EU Common Visa Application Centre, administered by the Embassy of Hungary in Moldova. The Center issues visas for citizens of Moldova wishing to travel to Sweden or to Denmark, Norway, Austria, Slovenia, Sweden, Luxemburg, Estonia, Finland, Belgium, Greece, Slovakia, Switzerland, Netherlands, Latvia, and Hungary.
Issues related to residence and work permits should be addressed to the Swedish Embassy in Bucharest.

General information about passports here (in English).
The Embassy legalises Swedish documents that are requested by or are to be presented to a foreign authority. A legalisation certificate is a stamp confirming that a signature on a document is genuine. A legalisation can be done in Swedish or English.

The Swedish Government has supported the Republic of Moldova in its national development and reform agenda for the past twenty years. The newly adopted Strategy for Sweden’s reform cooperation with Eastern Europe for 2021–2027 outlines the areas where Sweden will assist the countries in the region to forge closer links with the EU through reforms.
The reform cooperation is well aligned with the priorities identified in the National Development Strategy, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and in EU’s Eastern Partnership policy beyond 2020.
