Our Romania Visa Guide will teach you everything you need to know about Romania’s visa policy for people from all over the world, including different types of visas, particular requirements, visa sponsorships, visa fees, and more. It is critical to have a scheduled flight ticket in hand before applying for a visa to Romania.
The Schengen Areas visa policy is defined by the European Union and applies to all countries in the Schengen Area as well as other EU member states with the exception of Ireland. Nationals of specified countries are permitted to visit the Schengen Area by air, land, or sea without a visa for stays of up to 90 days during a 180-day period under the visa liberalisation policy. When entering or transiting through the United States, citizens of some foreign nations are needed to hold a visa.
Despite the fact that Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, and Romania are all EU members, they are not yet members of the Schengen Area. However, they have a visa policy that is based in part on the Schengen acquis.

What To Do If Your Romania Visa is Refused?
Individuals routinely inquire us how we can “guarantee” the issuance of a visa. Because all final decisions are made by embassies, there is no way to obtain a 100 percent guarantee. All you can do is ensure that your application is as strong as possible. Please get in contact with us if your visa application was denied. Your visa request may be denied without compensation for a variety of reasons, such as inappropriate insurance, insufficient proof of financial support, false information, or lack of proof of residence. If your application is declined, you may submit a request for reconsideration or reapply.
At the time of beginning the online visa application process via the external portal E-VIZA www.evisa.ro, you must acknowledge and agree to the terms and conditions surrounding the provision of your personal data for the purposes of processing and granting visas for entry into Romania.
The Romania tourist visa is valid for no more than 90 days every six months.
In accordance with embassy regulations for the visitor permit, you must have at least 50 Euros every day of your stay. In addition, the total balance in your bank account must exceed 500 Euros.
