I am now living in Romania. My wife is Romanian, went to officials to ask about long term visa, was told why bother they won't look for you.????? I will need a Romanian drivers license. Internet says I need to give up my Canadian permit,and have a long term visa. I do not want to lose my Canadian permit as I will be going back to Canada every now and then. If I get a long term residency card will I have to pay into Romanian health ins on top of my private ins? Very confused, no one seems to know anything, keep getting sent from one office to another one and at end of day still have not accomplished anything. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I;m in a similar situation. But to get a new driving licence in Romania is another challenge.... you need to know the language, to pass an exam, other papers more bureaucracy...

Hello guys.

The first topic, " Slipping money to someone" that can backfire really really nasty and i certainly advise you to NOT do anything like that, even as it seems obvious that it "might" work, it's not the best choice in a European country.

You don't need anyone to vow for you, if you are married to a Romanian, if you can show that you have a Canadian insurance which is valid in EU countries, and if you have a proof of wealth / income you are completely safe and legal to become a citizen on a EU country.

Now the drivers licence part: i Agree that you can "cheat" there.
And yeah the most easy way might be to take a Romanian licence.
since you live here you use the Romanian one more than your Canadian one.
You can apply for a IDP "International Driving Document." if you want to visit Canada.

If you are a visitor (tourist) in Canada, you can use your IDP for 90 days. if you wish to stay longer you can contact the Canadian Automobile Association (CAA) and ask for an extension of your IDP.
Have a look here: https://www.caa.ca/idp/


I hope this helps!!

regards J
