The Government adopted a measure on January 3rd, 2022, which will require travellers arriving in Romania to have been fully vaccinated within the past 9 months or have received the COVID-19 booster shot.
In addition to the changes announced recently, this new measure will mean that people arriving in Romania will need to have been vaccinated within the past 270 days, otherwise they will be expected to quarantine for 5 days.
This effectively means, that the vaccination certificate is valid for a maximum of 9 months upon completing the full vaccination schedule.
In the event that the person arriving in Romania after 9 months of completing their full vaccination, they will need to have received the COVID-19 booster vaccination and possess an updated version of their vaccination certificate or, either have had passed through the disease within the last 180 days or provide a negative RT-PCR test, completed within 72 hours of arriving in Romania.
These changes bring Romania in-line with other countries in the European Union, where 3-dose vaccination has been mandatory since February 1st, 2022.
