Bringing non-EU workers to Romania is a time-consuming process, and can take up to 4 months. There are 3 stages in the process:
- Work approval
- 1-year work visa (type D)
- Work permit & personal residence in Romania
Upon completion of the last step, a non-EU worker can work for the employer who initiated the procedure. The employment relationship can, of course, be resolved at any time. A new employer does not need to re-initiate the whole procedure, if the original sponsor of the visa releases a specific document to an employee. After one year, an employment visa can be renewed for about 100 euro incl. our service.
If you would like to hire a non-EU resident and go through the process on your own as a company, please find a list of documents you must collect in order to hire a non-EU citizen.
