Can't say that all of the boarder guards on the Transdniestr side are the most honest folks.
A visa at this quasi country should cost about 10 Euro. I ended up being locked in a room with a boarder guard while he patted me down and took a my wallet apart and asked me about my visa stamps. I had a Syrian visa stamp in there that he confused for an Israel stamp and gave me a hard time for some reason??? I had 2 $20 bills in a pocket of my wallet that he found and demanded 1 of them along with the 10 Euro note if I wanted in.
I kinda laugh about it and will assume that his fellow countrymen/women are probably a little more honest than this fool but this is part of traveling. The country is similar to the American south...average wage is low and the cities are not the most well kept but it is worth seeing.Related to:

This is very important: if you get to Trans-Dnjestr from Moldavia you have to pay 1$ per person to enter. You have to sit in a small office and answer question from an armymen. He writes a lot on forms, I don't know what exactly. Anway, you will receive a receipt which you have to keep until you leave Trans-Dnjestr. You are only allowed to stay there for 3 hours, so be sure you can leave this area early enough. I don't know what happens if you leave too late, but I also don't want to know. Remember you are in the soviet union and you might be a western spion, so don't risk anything.
