Simplified transportation regime will be valid for the next two years.

Ukraine and Moldova extended transport visa-free regime till late 2025.

TTS writes, the Ministry of Development of Communities, Territories and Infrastructure of Ukraine reported on joint decision with the Ministry of Infrastructure and Regional Development of the Republic of Moldova to extend the Agreement on the Liberalization of Road Freight Transportation between the countries till late 2025.

This agreement provides the possibility of bilateral and transit transportation by road without special permits. The protocol jointly with decision to extend the effect of liberalization was signed following the results of the meeting of the Ukrainian-Moldovan Joint Commission on international road transport on September 13-14.

We remind that previously the protocol was signed with the Ministry of Transport of Norway on the possibility of cargo transportation without the need to obtain permits. Transport visa-free regime will apply to trucks of the Euro-5 standard and above.

Today, liberalization cargo transportations is valid in 35 countries.

Interlegal’s comment (Dmytro Ochkolyas, leading lawyer, attorney):

Now, it is possible to transport cargo across the continental Ukraine to Reni Sea Port solely by car. However, from the logistic aspect it is possible to transport cargo through Moldova. It is facilitated by geographic features of Bessarabia, as well as by logistic priorities in ex-USSR. Although independent Ukraine drafted several projects of railways to Reni Sea Port, non of them was implemented. Therefore, safe and cheap railway transportation through Moldova – that’s one of the ways to facilitate Ukrainian grain export in the wartime!
