American citizen need visa, temporary residency

New Topic Newest First

Hi everyone! I am new to the forum- I joined because I have been dating my boyfriend (who is Romanian and lives in Bucharest) for almost 2 years while I live in Boston (I am an American citizen). We go back and forth for visits every few months without issue, but I want to move to RO long term (minimum 1 year, maybe more). I have spent a few months in Romania and am ready for change, but I can't figure out how to obtain a visa or temporary residency there.

I am TEFL certified and plan to teach remotely online and/or be a virtual assistant, so I don't intend to get a job in Bucharest. I have been learning Romanian for a little while and hope to pick it up quickly once I am there to practice.

Anyone have any experience as a non-EU national moving to Romania for longer than the 90 tourist visa allows?

Thanks for the reply! That is very helpful. How did you go about finding a school to volunteer at? That sounds like something that would work nicely for me.

If you don't mind me asking- about how much are you paying for private insurance? Did you purchase it from an international provider or in Romania?

I believe that the easiest way is the route I took. Find a certified NGO that will accept you as a contracted volunteer. I am a volunteer English-language tutor for three days a week in a local high school. -
It costs the school nothing and allows me to contribute something and leaves me significant free time. I also needed to buy private health insurance. With this I have gotten a one-year permit that is renewable.
