Duties when importing household belongings
You’re allowed to bring used household items into Moldova without paying duty, if you purchased them at least six months ago. You’re also required to have personally used them during this time, and to have resided outside of the country for a minimum of the last 12 months.
Failure to take all duty-exempted items with you upon leaving Moldova, will result in a VAT of roughly 20% being charged. You’re also not permitted to sell, lend out to others or get rid of these goods while in the country. Finally, in order to be eligible for duty exemption, your shipment must enter port no later than six months after you move to Moldova (1).
Documents when importing household belongings
You must submit the documents that customs requires to process your shipment. This includes a pro-forma invoice, a valid passport and a comprehensive inventory. If you’re relocating to Moldova permanently, then you’ll need to show your Moldovan Resident Permit. If your stay will be more temporary in nature, then customs will ask to see your Temporary Resident Permit and/or Work Permit.
Shipments being brought in temporarily also require a Letter of Employment in the packet of documentation you provide (2). A separate packing list and a Power of Attorney should also be submitted. Finally, you must have the Original Bill of Lading or Air Waybill for the shipment (3).
Duties when importing vehicles
If you wish to avoid paying duties when bringing your vehicle into Moldova, then you should opt for temporary importation. This allows you to keep the vehicle in the country for up to one year - though this term can be renewed for another year. There seems to be no limit set on renewals, though it appears you must have a valid Resident Permit to continue doing so. This process is not to be taken lightly, as failure to renew your temporary import permission, will result in your file being forwarded to the smuggling department of customs (4).
Keep in mind that while duty is waived for temporary vehicle imports, a small fee of roughly 95 Euros is still charged. In addition, you aren’t permitted to import vehicles manufactured more than 10 years ago (though some sources say only 7 years). If you choose to import your vehicle permanently instead, then duty exemption won’t be available (5). The exact rate you’ll pay is based upon the specifics for your vehicle - such as its value, the size of its engine, the model and year it was made (6).
Documents when importing vehicles
Customs must receive the vehicle’s title and registration, which were issued in the origin country. The Original Bill of Lading for the shipment should be submitted as well (7). You’ll also need the purchase receipt, your driver’s license and proof of insurance coverage (which is valid internationally) (8). The import policies, filing requirements and fees enforced by customs are subject to change. There are also additional regulations not covered above. Therefore, you’re strongly encouraged to discuss the details of your shipments with customs, before shipping your goods to Moldova.
