REGISTRATION OF THE FOREIGN CITIZENS

Registration is needed to travelers who are entering Moldova from Ukraine via Transdneistr / Pridnestrovie. These foreign citizens have to register with the local Moldovan authorities within the 72 hours from the entry via Transdniestr/Pridnestrovie. You can either register at the territorial offices when crossing the Transnistrian - Moldovan borders, or at the Bureau of Migration and Asylum in Chisinau or at the subdivisions of the Centre for state information resources "REGISTRU". The registration is free and you need to come in person and bring your passport with you. When applying for our registration in summer 2017 we had to wait about an hour at the reception of the Department before our number was called out. After 15-20 minutes at one of the desks we have received a slip confirming the time and date of the registration. According to the lovely girl who's done our registration if we were to leave Moldova without the entry stamp or registration then the fine would of been around 300 MDL. Please, share your experience if it's any different.
