What Is a Business Visa?

Business visas are long-term visas that allow you to enter Romania and engage in various types of commercial activities.

How Many Categories of Business Visas Are There?

We generally refer to the following as business visas:

  • Economic Activities Visa (D/AE) – for professionals qualified to set up a Sole Proprietorship (PFA) in accordance with Romanian law.

  • Professional Activities Visa (D/AP) – for professionals looking to work in Romania but not falling under the PFA category (e.g., lawyers, doctors).
  • Commercial Activities Visa (D/AC) – for associates in Romanian companies with management or administrative powers who intend to invest in Romania.

Are There Specific Requirements?

To obtain an Economic Activities Visa (D/AE), you must prove that you are registered as a PFA in Romania. This registration can also be done remotely with the assistance of a Romanian lawyer.

For Professional Activities Visas (D/AP), you must be accepted or authorized as a professional in Romania, depending on the case. The procedure can vary among professional organizations, and a lawyer can help with the necessary documentation.

In the case of Commercial Activities Visas (D/AC), the procedure is more complex. You must develop a business plan that receives prior approval from public authorities. The minimum investment starts at €150,000 or 25 employees per shareholder.

Who Can Apply for a Business Visa?

All business visas are applicable to non-EU professionals or investors.

How Can I Apply for a Business Visa?

You can apply for a business visa at the Romanian embassy or consulate in your home country. The visa application package must include several documents, with the most important being proof that you intend to conduct commercial activities in Romania.

How Long Can I Stay in Romania with This Visa?

All business visas are long-term visas, allowing you to stay in Romania for a maximum of 90 days.

If you wish to reside in Romania for a longer period, you will need to apply for a Romanian residence permit at least 30 days before your visa expires, typically within the first 60 days of legal stay.

Exceeding the visa duration may result in fines, deportation, or, in some cases, being banned from future travel to Romania.

Is a Visa Different from a Residence Permit?

Yes. A visa typically grants you the right to enter Romania and stay for a limited time, in this case, up to 3 months. However, if you wish to reside in Romania for an extended period, you’ll need a valid residence permit.

Therefore, the first step is to apply for a visa in your home country, allowing you to enter Romania legally. Then, if you intend to continue residing here, the second mandatory step is to apply for a Romanian residence permit through the Inspectorate General for Immigration (IGI) after your arrival.

In all cases, we recommend consulting with an immigration lawyer to ensure your visa application is smoothly accepted by the authorities.”
