Romania Visa Types

The following are the four primary categories of visas that may be obtained from Romania:

  • With this visa, visitors may wait at the international terminal of a Romanian airport for their next trip. Those who want to transit via the Romanian airport may apply for the Romania Airport Transit Visa (A Type).
  • Holders of this visa are permitted to transit through Romania for a period of up to 5 days while on way to another country. The Romania Transit Visa (B Type) may be obtained at the Romanian Embassy or Consulate in your home country.
  • Romania Short Stay Visa (Type C): This visa, which is granted for a variety of reasons including tourism, private visits, business engagements, participation in sports, cultural, scientific, or academic events, official government missions, and transportation, is designed for stays of no more than 90 days within a timeframe of six months.
  • This visa has a maximum validity of 90 days, but its aim is to offer entrance into Romania for individuals who are looking to secure a longer stay via a Romanian residence permit. Although this visa has a maximum validity of 90 days, its purpose is to provide admission into Romania. Individuals who have been given a residency visa are able to stay in the nation for extended periods of time for reasons include work, furthering their education, or reuniting with their families. It is essential to be aware that if you visit Romania with a visa valid for a stay of less than 90 days (type C), you will not be eligible to apply for a Romanian residence permit.

    Romania Visa Policy

    The Romania Visa Policy consists of the laws and regulations that citizens of other countries must abide by in order to enter Romania. A person's ability to enter the nation is contingent on their compliance with all mandatory restrictions. A valid visa is required for admission into Romania for all visitors.

    To enter any country, citizens of other nations are required to first get a visa, which is an official document. A valid visa is required for entry, residence, and exit from the nation. A visa is attached to a traveler's passport via adhesive or a stamp.

    Individuals of different nationalities are subject to different requirements under the Romania Visa Policy. A valid visa may only be obtained by adhering to all the requirements outlined in the Romania Visa Policy. The restrictions change based on variables such as the length of a visitor's stay, the nature of their trip, etc.

    There are just a few different types of visas that may be used to enter Romania, but the tourist visa and the business visa are the most common. Visa requirements for entering Romania vary on the reason for the trip.

    Romania's Visa Policy states that all foreign nationals need a visa to enter the country. Citizens of nearly 110 nations, territories, and regions may visit Romania visa-free. Argentina, Brazil, Fiji, South Korea, Chile etc. are only a few examples.

    Soon, Romania would be one of the 27 EU members. To enter Romania, citizens of countries now free from requiring a visa will need to apply for an Electronic Travel Information Authorization System (ETIAS) prior to their trip. Europe's electronic travel authorization and information system, or ETIAS for short. This visa waiver system will prescreen all foreign visitors to Romania to ensure that they do not pose a health or security danger to the country, as nationalists from the visa-exempt countries may enter Romania and stay for up to 90 days.

    Romania's Visa Policy guarantees all citizens of European Union member states the right to enter and remain in the country for an unlimited period of time. They should just provide a legitimate form of identification with their picture on it.

    According to the Romania Visa Policy, citizens of more than 35 nations and areas of the globe need a visa to enter Romania. There is no way for them to get a visa upon arrival or via an online application. Visitors from certain countries (including North Korea, China, Iraq, Chad, Cameroon, etc.) may be refused admission if they haven't secured a visa in advance of their trip.

    Exemptions from Romania Visa Requirements

    In addition, if you fall into any of the following categories, you won't need to submit an application for a Romanian visa valid for short visits (for stays of up to 90 days) since you won't be required to do so.

    • Possess either a valid visa for a short visit, a visa for a long stay, or a resident permit that was granted by a Schengen member state.
    • Possess either a valid visa for a short visit, a visa for a long stay, or a resident permit granted by Bulgaria or Cyprus.
    • A legitimate European Union (EU) residence permit for long-term residents that was granted by a nation that is a member of the European Union (EU).
    • You must be in possession of a permanent residence visa that has been granted by either the United Kingdom or Ireland and must have a validity period of at least five years.
    • If you are a non-European Union (EU) family member of a citizen of Romania, the European Union (EU), the European Economic Area (EEA), or Switzerland. Only couples, children younger than 21, and parents who are financially dependent on the EU, EEA, or Swiss citizen are eligible for this benefit.

    Please be aware that the length of time you are permitted to remain in Romania is determined by the number of days left on the validity stamp on your valid Schengen, Bulgaria, or Cyprus visa. To give you an example, if your visa was valid for 20 days but you only spent 10 of those days in another country, you are only permitted to stay in Romania for the remaining 10 days of your visa.
