Do you want to become a Romanian citizen? In this guide we explain what obtaining Romanian citizenship means, the conditions you must meet, and the documents your application file must contain for obtaining Romanian citizenship as foreign national.

An important aspect that you should know is that the Romanian citizenship law is founded on the basic principle of jus sanguinis (“right of blood”). In short, this means that the Romanian citizenship is determined by the condition of one’s ancestor’s citizenship, and not by one’s place of birth.

This is different from the principle of jus soli (“right of soil”) which is applied by other states. According to jus soli principle, citizenship is determined by one’s place of birth.
