Passports and visa
regulations for travelling to Romania
Visa regulations are dropping now, after
Romania's joining to European Union.
For most of the travelers to Romania (coming from EU countries,
US, Canada, etc), having visa is not longer required. They simply
need a passport not set to expire for at least six month after
their visit and that's it.
Among those who still need a visa to enter are Australians and
New Zealanders and they have to arrange it in advance.
Romania issues two types of tourist visas: single-entry and
Regular single-entry visas - valid for 90 days from the
day of arrival. Depending on the working program at the consulate,
single-entry visas are usually issued within a week, but an
extra fee (US$6) can reduce it to 48 hours. Transit visas are for stays of no longer than three days,
and cannot be bought at the border. Transit visas can be either
single-entry (US$15) - valid for three days - or double-entry
(US$25), allowing you to enter the country twice and stay for
three days on each pass-through.
