According to one representative of the Moldovan mission to the United Nations in New York, it will be at least one more year before the Moldovan government is in a position to issue its own regular passports (4 Nov. 1993). The Moldovan mission did not provide any information on when the Moldovan authorities began putting their stamp in Soviet passports currently used as Moldovan travel documents.
This response was prepared after researching publicly accessible information currently available to the DIRB within time constraints. This response is not, and does not purport to be, conclusive as to the merit of any particular claim to refugee status or asylum.
