There are 2 ways to obtain Romanian citizenship: naturalization or repatriation
The first is a long and difficult path, while the applicant must:
- Be over 18 years of age and have legally lived in Romania for at least 8 years;
- Have a good command of the Romanian language, have knowledge of the history and culture of the country;
- Be law abiding and have a reliable source of income.
If all the conditions are met, the person receives a residence permit, after that - a permanent residence, and then he can apply for Romanian citizenship.
An official marriage with a Romanian citizen gives the spouse the right to obtain a residence permit. It should be noted that the total period of naturalization in this case is reduced to 5 years.
Repatriation: Any person who proves that he or his direct relatives were born or lived on the territory of Romania before 1940 can apply for the citizenship without the need to invest hundreds of thousands of euros in the country's economy. You just need to meet 4 conditions:
- Reaching 18 years of age;
- No previous convictions;
- Declaration of loyalty to the country;
- Confirmation of Romanian origin.
The procedure is extremely simple. We will carry out archival work to find evidence of your Romanian "roots of origin". This will be a sufficient basis for the legal restoration of Romanian citizenship.
All stages of the paperwork checks and digitization, with the final result in the form of a citizenship order, takes approximatively 8 to 14 months.
