    International restrictions:

    Non-Romanian citizens are prohibited from entering the country except as part of a well-defined transit itinerary, with some exceptions, including diplomats, residents, immediate family members, or for essential work reasons. Commercial flights remain limited under the 30 days of ‘state of alert’ which started on 15 May. Flights to and from countries in the “red zone” of epidemiological risk, currently including Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Iran, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey, the UK and the USA, will remain suspended until further notice. International bus travel to Italy, France, Germany, Spain and Turkey is suspended until 14 June. Travellers from any other country will have to undergo home self-isolation at a single address communicated to authorities upon entering the country. They will be escorted by security forces from point of entry to this location and checked upon on a daily basis. Violation of home self-confinement leads to automatic isolation in a state regulated accommodation for 14 days and billing of fees to the individual, atop the potential fines and jail time. The measure does not apply to cargo, mail and humanitarian flights, or to flights providing emergency medical services and to non-commercial technical landings. Exceptions also include passenger flights transporting agricultural workers depending on inter-state diplomatic agreements, including the United Kingdom, Germany and France.

Face masks are mandatory in commercial spaces, public transport, workplaces and other enclosed public spaces. The relaxation of measures will happen in phases which will likely be two weeks apart. Hotels and beauty salons can reopen with a set of rules. Churches will be allowed to perform services outdoors. Shops with a direct outdoor entrance will be allowed to reopen.
