ROMANIA: Further Increase in Work Permit Quotas for 2020

The Romanian government has increased to 30,000 the total number of work permits that can be issued in 2020 to non-EU nationals, up by 50% from 20,000 in 2019.

As last year, this year’s quota has not been allocated by category of work permit.

Romania’s work permit quotas run from 1 January every year and are decided annually by the government, based on proposals from the Ministry of Labour.
