Tiraspol - the capital of Transdniestr /PMR

 

BUSES TO TIRASPOL AND BENDER
depart from the Central Bus station in Chisinau every 30-45 minutes. Cost of the ticket one way is about 2 USD. The trip to Tiraspol takes 1 hour and a half stopping at the border after 1 hour of journey.

Warning about the Cuciurgani border crossing
For those travelers who intend to go to Odessa from Chisinau we recommend to avoid transiting Transdniestr. The Transdniestrian customs officers will defenetly ask you for a stamp of exit of Moldova (which you obviously can't have because there is no customs between Moldova and Transdniestr and no one will even check your passport on the Moldovan side) and won't be willing to hear any explanations about the impossibility to get one. Go through Palanca instead. Or pay an enourmouse bribes (it gets up to 150-200 Euro for some travelers) and feel a fool at Cuciurgani (the Transdniestrian side).

"I did not find Trans-Dneistr to be backward as described in many places - eg Lonely Planet. It's very clean and transport etc seems to be very efficient. There's a brand new sports stadium and the train station in Tiraspol has just been refurbished! I was pleasantly surprised. I would compare the feeling of being there with it being in Minsk (if that helps anyone!) Who said communism doesnt work???!" by Kevin

Entry regulations on the Transdniestr border

No visa is required. No invitation letter is required to transit or stay in Transdniestr. Entry requirement has been simplified recently and foreign citizens are not required to register with the Migration office any longer. You will get a slip from the immigration desk when entering the country (the main point of entry with such facilities are at the border in Cuciurgani and Bender if travelling by car or bus and in Tiraspol / Bender if travelling by train from Odessa or Ukraine/Russia). It will indicate the lengh of your stay and the address of your residence in Transdniestr. Make sure you keep it safe on you as you will have to show it to the border guards when exiting the country. Failure to present the slip at your exit will result in a fine.
