Romania: Timeline Changes for Employer Document Submissions

Key Points  

  • Romania introduced document requirement timeline changes for employers of foreign national workers on 20 September 2023 


The government of Romania introduced changes to its document requirement timeline for employers of foreign national workers on 20 September 2023. These changes include removing the following document requirements as part of the online application process for hiring foreign nationals: 

  • Certificate regarding the available workforce for the job vacancy; 
  • Proof of the publication by means of mass information in Romania demonstrating occupation of the vacant job; 
  • The copy of the minutes drawn up by the employer that provides proof that the selection of an applicant was carried out to fill the vacant job; 
  • The fiscal attestation certificate issued by the public finance administration in whose territorial range the employer is domiciled. 

Instead, employers must submit these documents at the counter during the application process. 

What are the Changes? 

Romania updated the timeline for when employers submit certain documents related to the hiring of a foreign national employee. According to the government announcement, these changes aim to simplify certain immigration procedures and reduce the administrative burden on employers.
