Moldova – Update on measures to limit the spread of coronavirus

26 maj, 2020

The designated operator of Moldova, S.E. “Posta Moldovei”, asks us to inform other Union member countries and their designated operators that a public health emergency has been declared from 16 May to 30 June 2020.

Chisinau International Airport is still closed for regular commercial flights. However, charter flights are operating to various European destinations. Information on upcoming flights is announced on the website of the Moldovan Civil Aviation Authority at www.caa.md/eng/news.

As far as surface transport is concerned, two options for mail exchanges have been identified:

  1. Ukrposhta trucks on the Odessa – Chisinau – Odessa route, operating once a week on Wednesdays, for the following destinations: Austria, Belarus, Poland, the Russian Federation, Turkey and Ukraine;
  2. Poșta Română trucks on the Bucharest – Chisinau – Bucharest route (frequency depends on volume of mail accumulated), for Bulgaria (Rep.), Cyprus, Greece, Hungary, North Macedonia, Romania, Serbia and Turkey.

The list of destinations will be updated as and when other operators announce their availability.

Poșta Moldovei is therefore again able to accept international mail for Austria, Belarus, Bulgaria (Rep.), Greece, Hungary, North Macedonia, Poland, the Russian Federation, Romania, Serbia, Turkey and Ukraine. In addition, it will use charter flights to dispatch mail to France, Ireland and Israel.

Posta Moldovei is now able to process and deliver inbound mail, and it encourages member countries and their designated operators to send mail to Moldova using the existing options.

Postal customers in Moldova are being informed that delays are to be expected and proof of delivery will not be provided by countries that have suspended this service and declared a force majeure situation.

Posta Moldovei thanks all Union member countries and their designated operators for their understanding.
