The draft of the National Digital Nomad Visa plan was accepted by the Romanian government in October. Romania completed its national policy to welcome digital nomads in the country after joining the EU countries that have launched remote work permits.
In comparison to the United States or other EU neighbors, Romania’s cost of living is extremely low. The country is one of the best places for a longer stay as a digital nomad, with outdoor activities, coworking spaces, and various IT clusters.
How To Obtain A Visa For A Digital Nomad In Romania
- Application at the Romanian Embassy.
- Valid proof of employment.
- Medical insurance.
- Proof of address.
- Minimum annual income (€1,150/month).
Romanian conditions for digital nomads are advantageous not just because of the country’s low cost of living. Croatia, for example, requires a minimum income of €2,200, whereas Estonia only allows a minimum wage of €3,500.
Most countries throughout the world established similar programmes to attract remote employees and vacationers during the pandemic. Romania offers a simple and convenient digital nomad visa program to boost the local economy and attract tech talent to the country’s hubs.
