Romanian immigration to Argentina began in the late nineteenth century and early twentieth century. It started along with the massive wave of European immigrants who arrived in the country during that period. Numerically, this current was significantly lower than that of other peoples of Central and Eastern Europe such as Czechs, Bulgarians and Hungarians.
Romanian immigration to Argentina can be divided into three waves:
The first wave ranges from the late nineteenth century until after World War II. Immigrants came mainly from occupied lands by Austria-Hungary (Transylvania and Bukovina) and the Russian Empire (Bessarabia).

As part of the first wave of Romanian immigrants who arrived to Argentina, Jewish settlers founded numerous towns in Santa Fe and Entre Ríos, including those of Moisés Ville, Palacios, Las Palmeras and Monigotes. Many families of Romanian-Jewish background joined these groups of pioneers.
