Bureau of Migration and Asylum (BMA) Partnership

The Bureau of Migration and Asylum (BMA) is a subdivision of the Ministry of Internal Affairs in charge of promoting and implementing state policies related to immigration of foreigners in the Republic of Moldova, granting foreigners a form of protection in our country, ensuring and coordinating measures of social and cultural integration of foreigners.

The BMA is one of the main partners of the CDA in the country. CDA cooperates with BMA on the basis of two collaboration agreements: Memorandum of Understanding between CDA, BMA and NLAC and Memorandum of Understanding between CDA, GIBP, UNHCR and BMA.

Cooperation with the BMA has become more intense since February 24, 2022. CDA lawyers monitor the observance of human rights at border crossings points, help Border Police and the Bureau of Migration and Asylum identify asylum seekers who apply at the border crossing points, receiving asylum applications, providing legal assistance, advising asylum seekers at the border.
