General conditions governing the entrance of foreign nationals to Romania
A valid passport is required for all overseas/ non-EU visitors.
Your passport must be valid for the entire duration of your visit (it will not expire sooner than your intended date of departure).
However, please check the expiration date on your passport carefully before traveling to Europe. Although Romania is not part of the Schengen agreement, some airlines (i.e. Lufthansa) may refuse boarding at your point of origin or while transferring planes if your passport is not valid for at least three months beyond your intended date of departure; or your entry into the Schengen Area could be denied.
For this reason, the U.S. Department of State - Bureau of Consular Affairs recommends that your passport has at least six months' validity remaining whenever you travel abroad.
Citizens of the European Union countries can enter Romania with a valid passport or with their National Identity Card.
If you need a visa to enter Romania, we will be glad to send you a formal invitation letter.
Please note that, in the letter, we should indicate the exact period of stay in Romania and where you will be accommodated. We kindly ask you to provide us with this information.
