1. Requirements for Foreign Employees to Work
In Romania, citizens of the EU or of the EEA do not need a work and residence permit. Foreign citizens (who are not EU or EEA citizens) must obtain a work permit in order to work in Romania.
The work permit is issued by the Romanian Office for Immigration. As a rule, the work permit is issued for a one-year period. The number of working permits issued every year is limited and is determined by a government decision.
