Transnistria – Exercise Increased Caution

Transnistria is a breakaway region that is not under the control of the central government in Chisinau.  Visitors may encounter difficulties at checkpoints along roads leading into and out of Transnistria.  Taking photographs of military facilities and security forces is prohibited and may result in trouble with authorities.

The U.S. government has limited ability to provide emergency services to U.S. citizens traveling in Transnistria as U.S. government employees have restrictions on traveling to the area.
