Romania Visa Requirements
Once you get your letter of acceptance from the Ministry of education, youth and sport, you have to apply for Romanian student visa to your closest Romanian Diplomatic Missions (embassy or consulate). Students arriving from the EU countries, the European Economic Area, as well as from Canada, Croatia, Japan, Moldova, South Korea, Switzerland, USA and Serbia do not need visa to enter in Romania.
All other international students are required to apply for a Romanian student visa prior to arrival. Student visas may take from two days to 2 months to process and one can only apply for a student visa once the Ministry of Education in Romania has issued the letter of acceptance to study. It's best to apply early for the letter of acceptance and RocApply will do half of the job for you by unveiling the application form here on our website.
