Chisinau, 25 January /MOLDPRES/ - The Moldovan citizens settled in Romania, Austria, Sweden and Hungary will be able to order passports through the diplomatic missions from these countries and the documents are to be delivered to the address requested by them. A decision to this effect was approved at a today’s cabinet meeting, the government’s communication and protocol department has reported.    

The new way of documenting the citizens became possible due to a pilot project implemented by the Public Services Agency (ASP) and the Foreign Affairs and European Integration Ministry (MAEIE). At the initial phase, the MAEIE’s missions with headquarters in Bucharest, Vienna, Stockholm and Budapest were included in the project. Subsequently, all MAEIE’s diplomatic missions and consular offices will be able to benefit from this option.     

Moldova’s citizens with residence or who are temporarily abroad, who request the issuance of the passport through diplomatic missions or consular offices, will be able to pay the services provided right away with a banking card held.   

Given that the integration of the services provided through MDOC will be ensured gradually, with the concomitant enforcement of two ways of making payments, applicants will have possibility to choose the option of payment in foreign currency or Moldovan lei. In case of payment in the national currency, the payments will be processed through MPay.   

At the same time, citizens who ask for the processing of a passport through the diplomatic missions and consular offices of Moldova will be able to receive the document at the home address or at the place of stay abroad. This is possible through the MDelivery governmental service of delivery. 

The procedure of requesting the MDelivery service is made at the headquarters of the diplomatic mission or consular office. At the reception of the application for the issuance of the passport of Moldova’s citizen, the applicant will be informed about the possibility of the document’s delivery through MDelivery and the list of providers of postal services, the terms of delivery and tariffs established will be communicated to him/her.     

For his/her part, the citizen is to communicate to the consular employee the phone number, email and the address of delivery, to pay the tariff of the document requested and of the delivery service. Following the submission of the electronic order by the consular employee, the applicant will receive on the email indicated a notification of confirmation with the MDelivery order’s number.   

The order of the delivery service can be visualized on the official portal of the MDelivery governmental service –   

The draft Government Decision is to enter into force with its publication in Moldova’s Official Journal (Monitorul Oficial).
