Messages for U.S. Citizens

We strongly recommend U.S. citizens traveling to or residing in Moldova to enroll in the Department of State's Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP).  STEP enrollment gives you the latest security updates, and makes it easier for the U.S. embassy or nearest U.S. consulate to contact you in an emergency.  If you don't have Internet access, enroll directly with the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate.

The American Citizens Services unit will no longer issue messages regarding routine demonstrations taking place in Moldova. Instead, information about routine demonstrations will be posted on U.S. Embassy Moldova’s website, under the “Demonstrations Messages.” Please monitor our website regularly for information about demonstration activities in the country.

Please note that the Embassy will continue to issue messages not relating to demonstrations through the regular method.
