Romania: Immigration Bulletin – No More Work Permits Available for Seconded Workers in 2011
Non-EU foreigners locally hired may only obtain work permit in Romania
On November 8, 2011, the Romanian immigration authority announced that the quota for work permits available for seconded employees has reached its predetermined limit for the year 2011. As a result, foreign employees who were to be seconded to work in Romania in the remainder of the calendar year, will be denied the issuance of a work permit.
All applications which were under consideration when the announcement was made, have been rejected, and submission of new applications is not possible until the government reveals new quota numbers for 2012. This is expected at the end of December 2011.
Each year Romanian government determines the number of work permits available for non-EU foreigners. The quota for 2011 was announced on December 30 of the previous year and allowed the issuance of 600 work permits to seconded employees.
It is still possible to obtain work permits for locally employed foreigners, although unofficially we have been informed that quota for this type of permit has almost been reached as well.
Move One is closely monitoring the changes and will provide updates as necessary.
