Would you like to work in Romania? This is what you need to know

Authorities in Romania adhere to hiring practices for foreigners that are very comparable to those of the European Union. Foreigners must in advance find an employer who is willing to provide a work permit from the regional immigration office. And that is a prerequisite for lawful immigration to Romanian territory.

Terms and conditions to get a work permit in Romania:

  • Residents and EU citizens don’t need a work permit to legally work in Romania.
  • The workplace must not exceed the annual quotas adopted by the Romanian government for the employment of foreign workers.
  • Qualifications, experience, and education allow a foreign specialist to occupy an open position.
  • A certificate from a medical institution that confirms the employee’s ability to carry out professional activities.
  • No criminal record.

The employer must have a clean fiscal history, comply with the laws in the field of legal employment and be employed in the type of activity for which a work permit is issued for a foreigner.

Types of work permits:

The processing time for a work permit application in Romania can take up to 45 days, but usually the decision is made within a month. Initially, the document is issued for a maximum of one year with the right to renew.

  • Long-term: provides a regular employment contract.
  • Temporary: by transfer from a foreign company.
  • Seasonal: the contract is no longer than 6 months during the year.
  • Cross-border: for citizens of countries neighboring Romania, who work in the border area and who return to their country at least once a week.
  • For highly qualified workers: long-term contract of at least 1 year for a position that requires special skills and education.
  • Intern (for the purpose of professional education): temporary work to improve professional experience. Within no more than 2 months from the date of obtaining the work permit, the applicant applies to the Romanian Consulate in the country for a long-term visa for the purpose of employment.

Upon arrival in Romania, within 60 days at most, the employee submits a residence permit application to the Immigration Inspectorate at the place of registration. recrutare muncitori asia

The residence permit is renewed annually, provided that the employer remains the same. Otherwise, you will have to go through the whole procedure again. Family members of a labor migrant do not automatically receive the right to work in Romania; this also requires a permit. After 8 years of permanent residence on the territory of Romania, it will be possible to obtain Romanian citizenship.
