Short stay visa in ROMANIA
A short stay visa is a visa that allows foreigners to request the entry on the Romanian territory for reasons other than immigration, for an uninterrupted stay or for more than one stay, for a period not exceeding 90 days, within 6 months as of the time of the first entry. This type of visa can be issued with one or several entries.
In the case of foreigners who travel frequently to Romania for business relations, at the request of the central administrative authorities or of the companies with high economic and financial capacity, the short-stay visa with multiple entries can be granted for a period of one year and, exceptionally, for up to 5 years. In these situations, too, the length of stay may not exceed 90 days within 6 months.
The short stay visa is granted for the following purposes:
a) Mission - to foreigners who, for reasons of their political, administrative or public utility position, must travel to Romania. This type of visa is issued to foreigners holding positions in governments, public administrations or international organizations, as well as to those who, for the purpose of their stay in Romania, have an interest in the relations between the Romanian State and their state of affiliation. This type of visa can also be issued for accompanying family members.
