From Romania to Moldova

Maxitaxis to Chisinau leave from outside the Billa supermarket five times daily (25 lei, about four hours), while up to six daily buses (much slower) to Chisinau (30 lei) depart from the bus station. If you don’t acquire a Moldovan visa in advance, have a completed visa application (PDF format) ready at the border or risk being left behind by an impatient bus driver.

Trains throughout the day go to Ungheni, a border town just 21km away. Do not take this train unless you already have a visa for Moldova, as there are no visa processing facilities at this crossing.

One bus departs daily for Chisinau at the godawful hour of 6:30am (60 lei, seven to eight hours).

Sporadic bus service by Mirtrans (Tel. +40743420420), usually two per day, leaves at 8am and 4pm for Chisinau (8-10 hours) from Filaret bus station in Bucharest. Veralis (Tel. +40727208458) also sends buses to Chisinau from Filaret bus station that leave at 9am, 11am, 1pm and 3pm. These schedules change frequently, so it’s probably best to call ahead and confirm these schedules before making concrete plans. Reserving a seat is also a good idea.

One train per day goes to Chisinau from Bucharest (overnight; 14 hours).
