Frequently-asked questions

Where can you submit the Romanian citizenship dossier?

The dossier of regaining citizenship can be submitted at the National Citizenship Authority in Bucharest, Iasi, Suceava or Galati as well as at the Romanian Consulates in the Republic of Moldova.

Can the citizenship dossier be filed without prior registration?

No. The dossier can only be filed on a pre-scheduled basis.

If I have minor children, is it necessary to include them in my dossier?

Yes. This is obligatory.

Is it necessary to include also the papers of the ancestors in the dossier of regaining citizenship?

It will not be necessary to include the ancestors’ papers if at least one of the grandparents was born until June 28, 1940.

How long does it take the dossier of Romanian citizenship to be examined?

Act No. 21/1991 on Romanian citizenship provides for a single term for the examination of the file. It is set at 5 months after its submission. However, in view of the numerous dossiers submitted and the reduced number of staff within the National Citizenship Authority as well as the additional checks made on the dossiers submitted, the deadline is not respected.

What do I have to do after taking the oath?

It is necessary to execute your Romanian birth and marriage certificate. Act No. 119/1996 on Civil Status establishes that the re-registration of certificates must be made within 90 days after taking the oath.

How long can it take to obtain the Romanian identity card?

The only legal term for issuing the identity card is 45 days. That term cannot be reduced. As a rule, this is sometimes exceeded due to the fact that additional checks are made for those who first establish their residence in Romania

How long can it take to obtain the Romanian passport?

The temporary passport is completed within 3-4 days, and the simple electronic passport is completed within 14 days.
