Staying in Moldova

The state identification number of a natural person (IDNP / IDNP) is the main official identifier of a person on the territory of the Republic of Moldova. IDNP / IDNP is required for interaction with government agencies in order to:

  • use government services
  • when applying for a job
  • enrollment of children in kindergarten or school
  • when opening a bank account
  • registering your own company, etc.

To obtain an IDNP / IDNP, enter personal data from an identity document of a citizen of Ukraine (this can be a foreign passport, internal identity card or birth certificate).
