Travel to Romania

If we are citizens of Poland, the Czech Republic and the Slovak Republic, we will be able to enter Romania without doing paperwork, only with a passport, but for a maximum stay of thirty days.

If we will be in the country by transit we will only have to have the one-way plane ticket and we will not be able to leave the airport facilities; with the exception of the citizens of Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Congo Eritrea, Ethiopia, Ghana, India, Iran, Iraq, Nigeria, Pakistan, Somalia and Sri Lanka, since they must process a transit visa in their country.

Special cases

Citizens of African countries, China, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Korea and Peru, may travel to Romania if they have an official invitation from a company that can be authenticated or from an individual who has residence (the invitation must be sent to the general passport administration of Romania for review having an average duration of twenty business days).

To process the visa we must present: passport valid at least six months prior to its expiration date; request form; two passport-sized photos; proof of consular payment; travel medical insurance; economic solvency tests with a minimum of US $ 100 per day and per person and a letter from a certified travel agent indicating accommodation and tour reservations.

Business visa

If we travel for business we will have to attach the invitation letter from the company in Romania or from the employer that invites us, while if we travel for studies we will have to attach documents proving that we have enrolled in a course in the country. The procedure lasts a maximum of fifteen to twenty business days, so it is recommended to complete the process three months in advance.
