If you do not have the Romanian citizenship or the citizenship of another member of the European Union or of the European Economic Area and you come to Romania for commercial purposes, you can obtain a long-stay visa in Romania for commercial activities. A Romanian citizenship and immigration lawyer can advice you on this matter and draft the necessary documents in order to obtain the visa, according to Pavel, Margarit & Associates Romanian Law Firm. Moreover, if the competent authorities refuse to grant you a visa, a specialized lawyer can help you appeal this decision.

A long stay visa for commercial activities is granted to third-country nationals who are or will become shareholders or associates, in management and administration positions, within companies which have legal personality in Romania, and on the grounds of the prior endorsement of the Romanian Center for the Promotion of Foreign Investments.

The visa application accompanied by the supporting documents will be submitted at the diplomatic missions or consular posts of Romania and they will be subsequently sent to the Romanian Immigration Office for an endorsement, in accordance with legal attributions, through the Directorate General for Consular Affairs within the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The visa application will be submitted accompanied by the following supporting documents:
– the endorsement of the Romanian Center for the Promotion of Foreign Investments;
– the criminal record or another document that bares the same legal value;
– travel medical insurance for the entire period of validity of the visa;
– proof regarding accommodation.
The long stay visa fee is 120 Euros and is paid in the state where you apply.

After you have entered Romania, you must obtain a residence permit. The document certifies your right of residence in Romania.
The long stay visa for commercial activities is granted for 90 days, with one or more trips allowed.
The right of temporary residence for commercial activities is prolonged successively for periods of one year. For foreigners who prove that they have made investments of at least EUR 500,000 or have created over 50 full-time jobs, the right of residence is extended for 3 years, remind the Romanian citizenship and immigration lawyers from Pavel, Margarit & Associates Romanian Law Firm.
