Entry and stay in Romania

British citizens and also the citizens of the European Union or from the European Economic Area (EEA) can enter Romania at any border checkpoint where they must submit a valid identity document – passport or another identity document acknowledged by the Romanian State.

British citizens may enter and stay in the territory of Romania in keeping with the right of free movement and residence granted under the Romanian legislation, according to European provisions. For a stay in Romania longer than 90 days, a registration certificate has to be obtained from the Romanian Immigration Office.

Citizens of other states (states not in the EU/EEA) need an entry visa.

If you plan to visit Romania, you should carefully read and take note of the Requirements Procedures published on the Romanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs webpage:

If you are a British citizen, holder of a British passport valid for at least 6 months from the date you arrive at the Romanian border, you can enter Romania and stay visa free for a maximum of 90 days within six months from the date of entry. The 90 days limit may include one or more visits.

If you are intending to extend your visit in Romania for more than 3 months, you can apply for the Registration certificate issued by the Romanian Office for Immigration:
