== Border Crossing ==
Travelers from the [[US]], [[EU]], [[Norway]], [[Iceland]], [[Canada]], [[Russia]], [[Switzerland]] and [[Japan]] do not require [http://www.mfa.gov.md/consular-information/ visa] for entering Moldova. They are allowed to stay up to 90 days without visa and registration.
While entering '''Moldova''', you could face some problems when you entered from Ukraine via the autonomous [[Transnistria]] region. The Transnistrian border is not controlled by Moldovan authorities, which means you won't get an entry stamp when entering Moldova here. This can cause a lot of problems when leaving Moldova via other border checkpoint than Transnistrian. For more information see the Transnistria page.

* '''South-East''': If you are traveling e.g. from [[Odesa]] into [[Moldova]], best option is to take the Ukrainian M-15 motorway south-west and cross borders at the [[Palanca-Maiaky border crossing]]. From the border, you could already try to get rides directly to [[Chişinău]] or further. Walking over the border checkpoint is no problem, just keep in mind that you have to walk 3 km from the Ukrainian to the Moldovan side, so best is to hitch a ride just after the first checkpoint towards the next.* '''North-West''': When traveling from '''Moldova''' towards [[Ivano-Frankivsk]] or [[Lviv]], you have two border crossings to choose. The best option could be to hitchhike via [[Edineț]], [[Briceni]] towards [[Lipcani]] to take the [[Criva-Mamalyha border crossing]] and go on via [[Chernovtsy]]. Walking over by foot is no problem there, but you might have to wait for a lift some time.
