Republic of Moldova

In 2020, 86 asylum-seekers were registered by the authorities in Moldova, a moderate decrease compared to the previous year. Most people of concern were coming from Turkey, Uzbekistan and Ukraine. Moldova also hosts 3,405 stateless persons.  

UNHCR's operations in Moldova are part of the Multi-Country Office in Budapest. We follow and comment on developments in policy, legislation, and the daily practice of refugee protection. We are working with the Moldovan government and partner organizations. We are committed to creating public support for asylum-seekers, refugees and stateless persons.
