During the pandemic, travel was restricted, which led to a slowdown in the economy, but also to a long period in which Romanians in the diaspora stayed away from loved ones and family. In this regard, the European Commission offered on 13 May 2020 recommendations on the gradual and safe resumption of travel. During all this pandemic period, both the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the Ministry of Health provided all Romanian citizens with up-to-date information on the situation of international transfers.
Given that the situation regarding the victims of the Covid-19 virus has improved and the authorities have allowed the resumption of activities, we thought to provide you with some useful information if you are abroad and want to return to Romania:1. Follow the Facebook page and the website of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, where the information related to the number of confirmed cases, the number of confirmed cases and the number of deaths in Romania and Romanians from other countries are constantly updated. You will also find important information about opening borders and the countries from which you can return without isolation.
On June 13, the Ministry of Internal Affairs posted on the official Facebook account the list of countries for which the elimination of quarantine / isolation measures is applied starting with June 15, 2020 and these are: Austria, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Cyprus, Croatia, Confederation Switzerland, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Malta, Norway, Slovakia, Slovenia, Hungary.
This list is updated weekly by the National Institute of Public Health.
