A Romania work visa, also known as a Romanian Employment Visa (D/AM), is issued to foreign nationals who will travel to Romania to take up paid employment in a Romanian company. To get a Romania work visa, you must have a work permit from the Romanian Inspectorate General for Immigration.

Every foreign national who wants to stay in Romania for longer than 90 days has to apply for a Romania long-stay visa, except EU/EEA and Swiss nationals. This also includes foreign nationals from countries exempt from holding short-stay visas.
