Iso 3166-2:md

ISO 3166-2:MD is the entry for codes for the names of the principal subdivisions (e.g., provinces or states) of all countries coded in ISO 3166-1.

Currently for Moldova, ISO 3166-2 codes are defined for 1 autonomous territorial unit, 3 cities, 32 districts, and 1 territorial unit. The three cities have special status equal to the districts.

Each code consists of two parts, separated by a hyphen. The first part is MD, the ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code of Moldova. The second part is two letters.

Due to limited international recognition, Transnistria is considered part of Moldova and does not have its own ISO 3166-1 code.
