Moving to Romania
Romania is rich in history both politically and geographically. Romania sits in southeastern Europe along the lower Danube River and borders the Black Sea. Modern Romania is made up of three merged countries: Transylvania, Moldavia and Wallachia. Its climate is between temperate to continental and has four distinct seasons. The average yearly temperature is 11°F or 52°F but the winters can be cold and often have snowfall that offer great conditions for the many ski resorts throughout Romania. The country generally receives around 750mm or 30 inches of rainfall a year. Summers are warm on average of 28°C or 82°F and hotter temperatures in August and September are not uncommon.
The name Romania comes from the Roman translation “people of Rome” which was used during the time of the Roman occupation. Around 440 BC to 81 BC, Rome made large efforts to educate and spread Roman culture throughout the occupied territories along the Black Sea. It is believed that the modern language used in the country today is mostly based off of historical influence from the former Roman Empire.
Romania is a picturesque country to visit for those that enjoy nature and exploration. The country is very mountainous with numerous natural parks, canyons, lakes and waterfalls. Many medieval style villages and castles can be found on hilltops or mountain sides which make great places for tourist to visit. The well known story of count Dracula in Transylvania was written by Irish author Bram Stoker after visiting the medieval country side of Romania. It does often look like a story book because most of its towns are extremely old and have colorful painted houses with cobble stone streets. The coast of Romania is a popular destination for resort hoping along the cites of for example Olimp, Saturn, Mangalia and Neptun and is often referred to as the Rivera of Romania.
About Moving to Romania
Anyone visiting Romania within the first 90 days of arrival does not have to apply for a permit. Those who intend to stay in Romania more than 90 days have to apply with the Romanian Immigration Office for a temporary residence permit.
Cost of Living in Romania
The cost of living in Romania is one of the lowest in Europe. As in most cases, your highest cost will be housing and the price you pay will be based on the neighborhood and condition in which you like to live. In Bucharest, living in the city center can cost you between €1500 and €2500 for an apartment in a good area. Outside of Bucharest you can expect to pay around €500 a month or less for a one bedroom apartment. Utility costs for water, gas and power for a one bedroom apartment can range around €75 per month. Most affordable high rise apartments are left over from the communist era; they don’t offer an attractive appearance but can reduce your living expenses. Food, clothing and most consumer goods are quite inexpensive compared to the rest of Europe, and can be as much as 20% less.
Visas for Romania
Visa for residence in Romania can be very bureaucratic in that if you apply for a residence visa you may get a lot of paperwork that may be difficult to understand and the rules for visas in Romania change regularly.
