COVID-19, Romania. Update to information on restrictions for travellers arriving in Romania and restrictions within the country

Romania secures its borders and takes strong measures against COVID-19. There are currently a relatively low number of cases of coronavirus (COVID-19) in Romania. The Romanian Government has implemented a broad range of restrictive measures, including on entry from certain countries in response to the global outbreak, and has restricted aspects of daily life within Romania. Restrictions for travellers arriving in Romania include:

Mandatory quarantine in an institution such as a hospital if you have travelled from Italy, Hubei Province in China, Madrid, Iran, or Daegu City or Chendongo County in South Korea.

All flights, bus, and rail routes from Italy are suspended, and airlines have been asked to deny boarding to travellers coming from the above countries and areas. 

Travellers arriving from other parts of China, South Korea, all of Iran, and Heinsberg District in North-Rhine Westphilia in Germany will be asked to self-isolate for 14 days on arrival.Travellers arriving from the UK are required to fill in a form to self-certify that they are infection-free. Infringements on these procedures are being pursued with fines of up to €4000.

The Romanian Government has indicated that travel restrictions are likely to expanded in the coming days. There are some indications that travel from the UK may be more tightly managed.
Within Romania the Government has:

Announced the closure of national museums and other tourist attractions such as the Palace of the Parliament.
Banned confined space events with more than 100 participants, and all events with more than 1000 participants.
Closed all schools in the country until at least 22 March, which may be extended.

Recommended all universities suspend courses until March 31. Asked private companies based in cities and with over 99 employees to vary working hours to reduce overcrowding on public transport. Government ministries have been mandated to work with much lower staffing levels.

Advised against non-essential use of public transport. The public health system is already under significant strain.

Most visits to Romania are trouble-free.

If you need to contact the emergency services in Romania call 112.

If you’re abroad and you need emergency help from the UK government, contact the nearest British embassy, consulate or high commission.

The Overseas Business Risk service offers information and advice for British companies operating overseas on how to manage political, economic, and business security-related risks.

You should take out comprehensive travel and medical insurance before you travel. For information on the European Health Insurance Card see Health.
