THE INTERNATIONAL CLUJ COMMITTEE
For the attention of Mr. Antonio PATANE, president
Regarding your request for information on the vaccination procedure among the foreign civilian population established in Cluj, I hereby inform you that the same procedure that applied to Romanian citizens will also apply in their case. The difference is that foreign citizens who request to be vaccinated against the SARS-Cov2 virus must possess a foreign citizen CNP (personal identification code) and a residence permit registered in the National Electronic Vaccination Registry (RENV).
By accessing the national platform using the link https://vaccinare-covid.gov.ro/ and clicking on the section SCHEDULE (PROGRAMEAZA-TE), you will be able to enroll individually or as a collective, as a legal person, in which case, you will have to register the employees in different categories for stages II or III, depending on the situation.
I must remind you that the second stage includes the population at risk and the workers who carry out activities in essential domains. You can find out more details about this classification and other essential information only by accessing the link above.

The institutions and organizations that have subordinated structures or departments with a large number of employees may grant them access through the function – Register with a legal person(Inregistreaza-te la o persoana juridica) found in the Legal person management menu (Gestionare persoane juridice).
