Flag of Moldova.png Moldova debuted in the second edition of the North Vision Song Contest and have been participating ever since with the exception of the fourteenth edition. Originally funded by MLTV, Teleradio Moldova (TRM) has been in charge for the country's participation since the fourth edition.

The broadcaster has hosted many different national and international selections. Șansa ta was hosted in the sixth, seventh and eight editions respectively. The current national selection format chosen is AVEM, taking place since the fifteenth edition.

Their entry for the second to fourth were selected internally due to low budget funds. Both entries for North Vision Song Contest 9 and North Vision Song Contest 10 were planned to be chosen via Șansa ta, but eventually cancelled. Hence, the eleventh to thirteenth edition saw a regular internal selection. The entry for the sixteenth edition was selected internally due to being in the pre-qualification round of the edition, delaying the new national selection AVEM.

Moldova has achieved three four tens and ten qualifications, being pre-qualified in the eleventh, seventeenth and twenty-first edition. They have participated in the pre-qualification round once. Popular entries from the country include "Uhodi", "Loc pentru dragoste" and "Visele". Moldova has been the first place of the betting odds thrice (#10, #16 and #24), second and third once respectively as well (#06 and #21), infamously under-performing in them better than the actual contest.

Moldova came second in North Vision Song Contest 16 with "Loc pentru dragoste" and has qualified ever since. Recently, the country scored its highest points in both semi-final and final with Irina Rimes in North Vision Song Contest 20 and the second-highest place, being third in North Vision Song Contest 24. On the other hand, it finished last two times while being an automatic qualifier in North Vision Song Contest 11 and North Vision Song Contest 23.

According to the Ranking of Nations it currently ranks as the 6th best performing country by the twenty-fourth edition.
