Settlement - Romania

After completion study students settlement route In the Romania

In Romania, international students who have completed their studies have several options for obtaining a work permit, permanent residency, and eventually citizenship. Here are some common paths:


  1. Work Permit: If you find a job offer in Romania after completing your studies, you can apply for a work permit. Your prospective employer must demonstrate that there are no suitable candidates available from within Romania or the European Union (EU) for the position. The job offer should also meet certain wage and employment conditions. The work permit allows you to work and reside in Romania.


  1. European Blue Card: If you have a higher education degree and a job offer in Romania that meets certain criteria (such as minimum salary requirements), you may be eligible for the European Blue Card. This permit is designed for highly skilled professionals and allows them to work and reside in Romania. It also offers a path to long-term residency and eventual citizenship.


  1. Long-Term Residence Permit: If you have resided in Romania continuously for a specific period (usually five years) and can demonstrate stable income and accommodation, you may be eligible to apply for a long-term residence permit. This permit allows you to live and work in Romania without any time restrictions.


  1. Family Reunification: If you have a spouse or partner who is a Romanian citizen or holds a permanent residence permit in Romania, you may be eligible to apply for a residence permit based on family reunification. This option allows you to join your family member in Romania and potentially obtain a work permit.


  1. Romanian Citizenship: Obtaining Romanian citizenship generally requires residing in Romania for a specific period (usually eight years), meeting language proficiency and integration requirements, renouncing your previous citizenship (unless you are eligible for dual citizenship), and fulfilling other criteria set by the Romanian government.
