EU project provides Moldovan border and migration authorities with necessary equipment

On 4 November, the Bureau for Migration and Asylum of the Moldovan Ministry of Interior received 2 minibuses and 21 identity document readers for a total of €125,000, funded by the European Union. 

The equipment will help improve document checks of foreign citizens across the country, whose flow has seriously increased since Russia launched its war against Ukraine. The 21 ID card readers will enable instant and real-time analysis of the quality of facial images, fingerprints and signatures.

The equipment and vehicles, as well as operational expertise for the Migration and Asylum Office, were provided as part of the ‘Support for the Protection, Transit, Voluntary and Documented Return and Reintegration of Citizens from Eastern Partnership Countries and Third Country Nationals Affected by the Conflict in Ukraine’ project. 

The total budget of the project is €15 million. It is funded by the European Union and implemented by the International Organization for Migration (IOM) in Moldova.
