Specific requirements[edit]

Passport validity[edit]

A Romanian identity card is valid for travel to most of the European countries

Many countries require the travel documents of visiting foreigners to be valid for a period beyond the date of entry into their territory.

at least 1 year[edit]

at least 9 months[edit]

at least 6 months[edit]

Many countries require passport validity of no less than 6 months and one or two blank pages.[212]

at least 4 months[edit]

at least 3 months[edit]

at least 45 days[edit]

at least 1 month[edit]

valid on exit[edit]

Other countries require a passport valid throughout the period of intended stay.

Vaccination[edit]

Many African countries, including:

require all incoming passengers to have a current International Certificate of Vaccination. Some other countries require vaccination only if the passenger is coming from an infected area.[214]

Fingerprinting[edit]

Several countries including Argentina, Cambodia, Japan, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, South Korea and the United States demand all passengers to be fingerprinted on arrival.[215][216][217][218][219][220][221]

Rejection of Romanian passports[edit]

Romanian passports are recognized by all countries of the world. However, in some rare cases, Romanian citizens may be refused entry.

Evidence of travel to Israel[edit]

Visitors with an Israeli passport stamp or visa will likely be refused entry to the following countries:[222][223][224][225][226][227][228][229][230][231]

Evidence of travel to Nagorno-Karabakh Republic[edit]

Visitors with a passport stamp or visa of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic are not allowed to enter the following country:

As a result of the Nagorno-Karabakh War between Azerbaijan and Armenia, Azerbaijan refuses entry to those whose passport shows evidence of entry into the self-proclaimed Nagorno-Karabakh Republic. Such persons are immediately declared permanent personae non gratae.[232]

Upon request, the Karabakh authorities may attach the visa to a separate piece of paper in order to avoid detection of travel to their country.

Armenian name or ancestry[edit]

Azerbaijan authorities refuse entry to passport-holders of Romania and any other country if they have an Armenian name or are of Armenian descent.

Persona non grata[edit]

The government of a country can declare a Romanian diplomat persona non grata, banning their access into the country. In non-diplomatic use, the authorities of a foreign country may declare a Romanian citizen persona non grata permanently or temporarily, usually because of unlawful activity. Attempts to enter the Gaza strip by sea may attract a 10-year ban on entering Israel.[233]

d. ^ The pre-arrival visa is a free Entry Permit Letter, obtained by e-mail request. The permit allows only the entrance. While in Abkhazia, visit the Consular Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Abkhazia, in Sukhumi, to obtain the actual visa which will serve as an exit permit document.
e. ^ If entering from Russia, do not exit to Georgia, because you will be subject to punishment and fines by Georgian customs. By Georgian law, crossing the Russian-Abkhazian border is considered a violation of the Georgian border regime (an illegal entry to Georgia), whereas Georgia doesn't recognize Abkhazia and considers it a part of its territory. From the Georgian law point of view, a legal travel into Abkhazia must be originated and ended in Georgia. Entering Abkhazia from Georgia and exiting by land to Russia (or by air or sea to another country) will be considered an illegal exit of Georgia. Try not to enter Georgia with a passport used to travel to Abkhazia by entering from Russia and then exiting back to Russia, or by entering from Georgia and then exiting to Russia.
f. Visas can be obtained only from Nagorno-Karabakh Republic's Permanent Mission in Armenia. Request consular or border officials to issue the visa or entry/exit stamps on a separate piece of paper, otherwise you won't be able to travel to Azerbaijan with that passport. Azerbaijan considers Nagorno-Karabakh Republic part of its territory and will revoke visa, turn away, deport or even arrest anyone who attempts to enter the country with a Karabakh visa and entry/exit stamp in his or her passport.
g. ^ Visitors intending to stay in Transnistria more than 24 hours must register with the local police (fee: USD2).
