Romanian authorities have approved recently a series of derogations from the provisions of Romanian immigration legislation, with the purpose to allow Ukrainian citizens to work in Romania without the requirement to obtain a work permit and a Romanian long-stay visa.

More exactly, a new Emergency Ordinance (Ordinance no. 20/2022) was adopted on March 8, 2022, which provides for a specific exemption. The new exemption says that all Ukrainian citizens who agree on and sign an employment contract with a Romanian company can extend their right of stay in Romania by directly obtaining a residency permit for work purposes from the territory of Romania.
