Student Visas in Romania

Student Visas in Romania

Depending on your citizenship, you may or may not need a visa to enter Romania and study. If you’re from an EU country or the USA, Canada, South Korea, Japan, most of Latin America, Malaysia, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Hong Kong, Serbia, United Arab Emirates, Moldavia, Norway or Switzerland, you do not need a visa to enter Romania. Students from other countries, however, will need to apply for a student visa after they have been accepted by a Romanian institution. These can taken up to two months to process, so apply the moment you have been accepted and know you will study in Romania.

Note that when you enter passport control in Romania at the airport, you will need a passport, a copy of the admissions letter, and at least 2,000 Euro cash or travelers checks showing that you have sufficient funds to live in the country.

If you want to stay more than three months in Romanian and are from the EU/EEA/Swiss Confederation, you must register with the General Inspectorate for Immigration for your county. To obtain a residence card, you will need to prepare a file with the following: an application, entry visa if you’re from a country that needs it, letter from the university to the Director of the Immigration Police, the rental agreement or lease, financial guarantees for one year (minimum 2,000 Euros), medical certificate, insurance payment proof if you’re over 26, and a proof of payment of the residence card tax.
