Due to the increase number of coronavirus infections in Romania, more and more countries have introduces restrictions for citizens who are traveling from Romania. The 20 European states that prohibit Romanians’ access or impose restrictions on the entry into their territory are Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Cyprus, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Greece, Ireland, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Montenegro, Norway, Great Britain, The Netherlands, the Republic of Moldova, Slovakia, Slovenia and Hungary.

However, some of the countries will permit the staying or transit without quarantine if the person presents a negative COVID test, with specifications. Hungary, for example, needs two negative tests made within 5 days, while Austria wants the same test made no longer than 4 days up until the arrival. Greece, one of the holiday destinations that Romanians enjoy the most, created an online form, but restrictions will change from July 15, when the Greek authorities will need a negative COVID-test to let you in.

Last week, the Romanian authorities have updated the “green list” of countries for which travel restrictions due to COVID-19 don’t apply anymore so travelers arriving in Romania from these countries are no longer recommended to stay under quarantine or home isolation for 14 days. The list includes 32 states, member countries of the European Union and the European Economic Area and among them, the UK, Belgium, Denmark, The Netherlands, and Spain. The full list is available here.
