On 25th of February 2011, a combined facility for documenting foreigners - One Stop Shop opened its doors at the Bureau of Migration and Asylum. The new facility is designed to facilitate the documenting of foreigners coming to Moldova for work, studies, family reunification etc. Creation of the One Stop Shop according to the established European standards was possible due to the support provided in the framework of the EU-funded project “Technical cooperation and capacity building for the Governments of Ukraine and Moldova for the implementation of readmission agreements with the European Union” (GUMIRA). The project which is implemented by the International Organization for Migration mission to Moldova (IOM) has provided furniture for the premises, five working stations, the access control system, a multifunction biometric data capture device and other necessary equipment with the total value of 22,000 Euros. read more...
