TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS

Anyone considering travel to Romania should check the latest information from the local authorities regarding requirements for international passengers arriving in the country. Romania is currently applying a classification of risk based on country of origin. These can be either GREEN, YELLOW or RED.

Here you may find what are the countries on the RED, YELLOW and GREEN list: https://www.cnscbt.ro/index.php/liste-zone-afectate-covid-19/ (the list is updated regularly – each week).

  • Anyone arriving to Romania from GREEN COUNTRIES can enter Romania without any restrictions.
  • Participants arriving from YELLOW COUNTRIES must be vaccinated or show a PCR negative result taking within maximum 72 hours prior their arrival in Romania.
  • Anyone arriving to Romania from RED COUNTRIES, will be required to selfquarantine for 14 days, except if they are fully vaccinated (10 days and more after the second dose of the vaccine – if a second dose was required) or they have been infected with SARS-COV-2 in the last 90 days – with medical evidences: a positive RT-PCR test at the date they received the diagnosis & the hospital discharge ticket or a test proving the presence of IgG antibodies performed with a maximum of 14 days before coming the Romania. For RED COUNTRIES, PCR is not enough to avoid quarantine, vaccination proof is required.

COVID-19 VACCINATION is STRONGLY RECOMMENDED for selected participants, as guarantees a very easy travel process and PREDICTIBILITY in any of the 3 risk situations above. Additionally, it provides comfort and security to other participants from the group, while enjoying the project.

During your travel to Romania, people should have with them masks and disinfectant. During both mobilities, we will provide masks, disinfectants and fast COVID-19 antigen tests for all participants.

PCR test cost (arrival) can exceptionally be covered only for participants arriving from YELLOW countries (if applicable at mobility date), in case vaccination can’t be taken or is not available.

PCR test costs is not covered for the other 2 scenarios (GREEN and RED), since these are either (1) not needed for participants arriving from GREEN countries; or (2) they still require quarantine for the participants arriving from RED countries.

If on arrival, participants receive a QUARANTINE decision, they must know they cannot quarantine in the hotel where the project is held, as we cannot risk the entire group to go to quarantine and they need either (1) to go back to their country in maximum 72 hours, (2) cover their own quarantine costs or (3) quarantine in an institutionalized quarantine hotel provided by state.
