All EU citizens that envision an extended stay in Romania together with their family members, including children, have to obtain this document. Documentation has to be submitted after the assignment or local employment contract enters into force and within 90 days of entering Romania.
For all EU and non-EU citizens that are relocating with them, Romanian companies have to submit a notification to the Territorial Labour Inspectorate 5 days before or (at the latest) the day the assignment starts. Please note that the fine for not complying with this legal requirement is significant.
For all EU and non-EU citizens that are relocating with them, Romanian companies have to keep a file that includes, among others, the assignment letter and its legalized translation into Romanian.
Non-EU citizens as principal applicants have to obtain long-stay visa after obtaining the work authorization (for local employments and secondments).
Therefore, work visa or secondment visa needs to be obtained within 60 days of issuing the work authorization (type D/AM, respectively D/DT) as a requirement for obtaining the residence permit.
Family members also need to obtain a family reunification visa (D/VF) within 60 days of obtaining the reunification family approval.
Non-EU citizens and holders of Romanian residence permits may need to obtain a short-term visa in order to visit EU or non-EU countries for business purposes or personal pleasure.
This service is aimed at assisting non- EU citizens that envision an extended stay in Romania. This is applicable for any expatriate who obtained a work authorization of any type and his family members, including children.
Non-EU citizens are required to obtain a long-stay visa prior to obtaining Romanian residence permits. Please note that for family members, the long-stay visas can only be obtained after a favourable answer in this regard has been obtained from the Romanian Immigration Inspectorate (see family reunification process described below).
Non-EU citizens assigned by a foreign employer to a Romanian company have to register with the Romanian House Insurance System, prior to obtaining residence permits.

Non-EU citizens that wish to bring their families to Romania have to apply for family reunification. Through this process, Romanian authorities give non-EU foreigners that are temporarily residing in our country, their approval to bring their family with them.
One of the most important requirements for this procedure to be successfully accomplished is that the main applicant – the foreigner that works or is assigned to Romania – holds a residence permit with one year validity.
This process is very long: the legal deadline for obtaining the family reunification approval is within 90 days of request.
Non-EU citizens married with EU citizens that are assigned or locally employed in Romania and non-EU citizens married with Romanian citizens need to obtain the residence card within 90 days of entering Romanian territory.
This service is provided for expatriates who can’t attend local authorities appointments in order to collect documents and agree to give us notary power of attorney in order to represent them in front of authorities. This is also needed for family members in order to accomplish the reunification family file and secondments cases on their behalf.
In Romania, the notary does not come to the client’s office so the client has to go to the notary office and wait until the documents are signed. However, we have set up a special partnership with one notary office that exceptionally agreed to come to our client's office when necessary.
Blue cards are issued for third-country nationals that have obtained the work authorizations as highly skilled workers on Romanian territory. This encourages geographic mobility within the EU, between different member states for those who have been granted a blue card.

The tax for obtaining the apostille depends on the document type and the number of pages. The apostille can also be provided to Romanian citizens who live abroad and need official Romanian documents in order to get employed in another country.
Non-EU citizens with documents issued in countries that are not members of the Hague Convention need an over-legalization procedure that involves three stamps (two from home country and a third one from Romania's Ministry of Foreign Affairs).
