As of November 1, 2010, Moldovan children being adopted to the US will no longer need to travel to Romania to obtain the travel visa to the US.
The press release from the US Embassy in Chisinau can be found here:
“U.S. Embassy in Chisinau Will Begin Processing Immigrant Visas for Moldovans
For the first time, the U.S. Embassy in Chisinau will begin processing U.S. immigrant visas for Moldovan residents. Until now, the U.S. Embassy in Bucharest has processed immigrant visas for Moldovans. This year, residents of Moldova will finally be able to apply in their own country, without having to apply for Romanian visas and travel to Bucharest. Embassy Chisinau will begin processing immigrant visas on November 1, 2010.”
“Any immigrant visa applicants whose cases are pending with the U.S. Embassy in Bucharest may email VisasBucharest@state.gov to request to transfer their cases to Chisinau to finish the process.”
