  • Romania Latest News: Romania authorities update list of countries with high epidemiological risk, lift ban for flights to and from U.K. (Romania Insider, 04.01.2021). Romania announced that from 24:00 (CET) December 20 all arrivals from the UK, regardless of nationality, are required to self-isolate for 14 days and from 19:00 (CET) 21 December all passenger flights to and from the UK will be banned for 14 days (Gov.UK, 20.12.2020)

    International Restrictions:
    Commercial flights to and from Romania remain very limited.
    *From within the EU:

    Romania adopts its own national classification of risk areas, hence travel restrictions for Romania are not based on the common “EU Traffic Lights” map.

    Is a quarantine required? 

    Entry from EU Member States and Schengen Associated countries is allowed without restrictions, with the exception of countries or areas that are considered at high epidemiological risk.

    A 14-days quarantine applies to all persons arriving from countries and areas with high epidemiological risk, and who have the right to enter the national territory, respectively: Romanian citizens, citizens of European Union Member States, European Economic Area or the Swiss Confederation, and persons who fall under one of the exceptions provided by Decree no. 553 of 15.07.2020, Annex 3, art. 2, paragraph 2, letters a) – l).

    The quarantine must take place at the person’s home, at a declared location or, if needed, at a dedicated location designated by the authorities.

    Is a coronavirus test required? 

    Travellers who will remain in Romania for less than 3 days (72 hours) and present a negative test for SARS-CoV-2, conducted no more than 48 hours before entering the national territory, are exempted from the obligation to quarantine. 

    The quarantine may be reduced to 10 days if a test for SARS-CoV-2, performed on day 8 of the quarantine provides a negative result, and the person has no symptoms.

  • Romania Latest News: Romania authorities update list of countries with high epidemiological risk, lift ban for flights to and from U.K. (Romania Insider, 04.01.2021). Romania announced that from 24:00 (CET) December 20 all arrivals from the UK, regardless of nationality, are required to self-isolate for 14 days and from 19:00 (CET) 21 December all passenger flights to and from the UK will be banned for 14 days (Gov.UK, 20.12.2020)

    International Restrictions:
    Commercial flights to and from Romania remain very limited.
    *From within the EU:

    Note: Romania adopts its own national classification of risk areas, hence travel restrictions for Romania are not based on the common “EU Traffic Lights” map.

    Entry from EU Member States and Schengen Associated countries is allowed without restrictions, with the exception of countries or areas that are considered at high epidemiological risk.

    A 14-days quarantine applies to all persons arriving from countries and areas with high epidemiological risk, and who have the right to enter the national territory, respectively: Romanian citizens, citizens of European Union Member States, European Economic Area or the Swiss Confederation, and persons who fall under one of the exceptions provided by Decree no. 553 of 15.07.2020, Annex 3, art. 2, paragraph 2, letters a) – l).

    The quarantine must take place at the person’s home, at a declared location or, if needed, at a dedicated location designated by the authorities.

    Travellers who will remain in Romania for less than 3 days (72 hours) and present a negative test for SARS-CoV-2, conducted no more than 48 hours before entering the national territory, are exempted from the obligation to quarantine. 

    The quarantine may be reduced to 10 days if a test for SARS-CoV-2, performed on day 8 of the quarantine, provides a negative result.
