About Romania

Romania is a country in Southeast Europe. Bucharest is the country’s capital. Romania was seized by Soviet soldiers in 1944, and in 1948 it became a satellite of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR). The Romanian environment is roughly one-third mountainous, one-third forested, and the rest hills and plains.

Romania has an abundance of natural resources, including fertile agricultural land, livestock pastures, forests with hard and soft woods, petroleum reserves, metals, including gold and silver in the Apuseni Mountains, numerous rivers that supply hydroelectricity, and a Black Sea coastline with ports and resorts.

The short-stay visa (marked C) allows entry and a short stay of aliens on the territory of Romania for no more than 90 days within an interval of maximum of 6 months from the date of entry (in the case of a multiple-entry visa, the duration of the stay will be taken into account from the date of the first entry).

The right of stay in this case is of 90 days; however, this type of visa allows for its prolongation following an official request addressed to the Romanian Office for Immigration which is part of the Romanian Ministry of Administration and Interior. The requests for the extension of the right of stay must be personally submitted by the applicants, at the local branch offices of the Romanian Office for Immigration closest to their place of residence, at least 30 days before the expiry of the stay right granted by the visa. Overstaying the visa entails cancellation of the visa and the obligation of leaving the territory of Romania.
