Import is the customs regime under which goods are released into free circulation on Moldova's customs territory provided that all customs fees are paid and measures of economic policy are applied.
The customs fees and duties which need to be paid in an import procedure include the following:
Measures of economic policy imply the observance of restrictions on the introduction or import of goods and vehicles into Moldova established for the purpose of economic policy, which provide for licensing, quotas, taxation, price ceilings and thresholds. The customs clearance, as a rule, takes place at the regional customs office which is nearest to the importer's legal address. Once the stamp "Liber de vama" ("Free from customs") is applied, the imported goods may be released into free circulation.
The main regulatory documents on imports are the Customs Code and the Government Decision nr. 1140 on Regulations for Customs Destinations.
