Payroll cycle.

In Romania, the payroll frequency is monthly. Work between the first and last day of the month is typically paid on the last working day of the month.

13th Salary

There is no statutory requirement for a 13th salary payment in Romania

According to Romania law, the work week is limited to no more than five eight-hour days and a maximum of 48 hours per week. Part-time workers must work a minimum of ten hours per week, two hours per day. For employees under 18, work is limited to six hours a day or 30 hours a week.

Employers must keep a record of the daily work hours performed by each employee, highlighting the start and end hours of the working program, and shall present such records to the labor inspection control when required.

Employees are allowed to work a maximum of 48 hours per week including overtime. After working a 12-hour day, employers must give a 24-hour rest period. Work performed outside the standard eight hours per day, 40 hours per week must be compensated with paid hours off during the 60 calendar days after the overtime has been performed.

If the compensation with paid time off is not possible, the overtime shall be paid to the employee by adding a benefit that must not be lower than 75% of the basic wage, pro-rated to the overtime performed.

Workers under 18 years of age, part-time employees, and pregnant employees who are unable to work normal working hours for health reasons are not permitted to work overtime.

Working Week


Paid Time Off

Employees are entitled to up to 20 days of paid annual leave by law per year pro-rated with the worked period. Employers are required to pay employees their allowance at least five working days before the leave starts.

If the employee cannot take all or part of the annual leave entitlement within the calendar year, the employer must carry over the outstanding annual leave to the first six months of the following calendar year, however, if the employee is still unable to take the leave entitled (e.g. due to long-term sickness), the employer must grant the unused leave with the employee’s consent within 18 months, starting with the year following the one when vacation has been accrued.

Public Holidays

Public holidays that fall on the weekend are usually lost.

Under the labor code, employees covered by the pension and social insurance system who have made required contributions are entitled to sick leave of up to 180 days within one year with a possible 90-day extension.

The first five calendar days are provided by the employer for working days only. From the 6th calendar day, the FUNASS (Unique National Fund of Health Insurances) fund supports the payment of sick leave.

Sick pay is equivalent to 75% to 100% of the average monthly income during the previous six months, depending on the category of illness. The employee is required to provide a medical certificate from the doctor.

Maternity Leave

A pregnant employee is entitled to 126 days of paid maternity leave.

Maternity leave consists of two periods, prenatal leave, which is the period where a woman must take a minimum of 63 days before the expected due date, and postnatal leave, where the employee must take the remaining 63 days after the birth of the child.

The actual days across the two periods are stipulated by the employee’s physician and reported in the official medical certificate of maternity. The maternity payment is paid by the FUNASS (Unique National Fund of Health Insurances) at a rate of 85% of the calculation based on the average of the employee’s monthly gross wages during the six months before the maternity leave started.

In addition, employees are entitled to take leave to protect their own and their child’s health and safety. The maternal risk-benefit is completely supported with funds from the Unique National Fund of Health Insurances. The amount of benefit is 75% of the average gross earnings over the last six months. Maternal risk leave is complementary to maternity leave.

In these cases, the employee is required to write a request to the employer and provide a medical certificate from the doctor for the child’s sickness.


Paternity Leave

The father/partner, who effectively participates in a child’s care is entitled to 10 days of paid leave, irrespective if the child is born of marriage, out of wedlock, or adopted; this leave increases to 15 days if the employee participates in an infant care course. The possibility to benefit from paternity leave is during the first eight weeks after the birth of the child, based on the written request addressed to the employer.

The employee is legally required to provide the birth certificate of the child.

The paternity leave allowance is paid from the employer’s salary fund and is included in the taxable income of the employee.

In the case of the death of the child’s mother during childbirth or during maternity leave, the child’s father is entitled to the following benefits, as the case may be:

a) an allowance equal to the maternity allowance due to the deceased mother if the father does not complete the insurance period to benefit from the right to medical leave.

b) a maternity-related allowance granted in accordance with the father’s income, for the case when he fulfills the insurance period to benefit from the right to medical leave.

This allowance is borne from the salary fund of the employer where the father works.

Parental Leave

After maternity leave, one of the parents is eligible for childcare leave (parental leave) until the child reaches two years of age (three years of age in the case of disabled children), provided that the employee has contributed to tax during the past year of employment.

The employee is entitled to receive a monthly allowance from the appropriate Romanian authorities amounting to 85% of the average regular salary received in the last 12 months before childbirth. The employee is legally required to provide the written request from the employee, the birth certificate of the child, and a declaration that the other parent is not on maternity leave.

Other Leave

Depending on the collective agreement/employment contract terms, an employee may be allowed additional leave types, which must be approved between the employer and employee.

Employees are entitled to up to three days of paid bereavement leave in the case of the death of a direct family member. In these cases, the employee is required to provide the death certificate and a request from the employer.

Employees are entitled to five days of paid wedding leave and two days of paid leave in case of the wedding of an employee’s child. In this case, the employee is required to request the employer to go on leave and after the wedding, provide the wedding certificate.

Termination Process

The termination process varies according to how the employment agreement and collective agreement are in place and is based on the type of contract and reason for termination. Individual employment contracts can be terminated by means of

  • By mutual consent of the parties
  • By either party of the employment contract within the terms and conditions provided by the law

Employers may terminate employment contracts by dismissal for reasons related to the employee (e.g., professional inadequacy as a disciplinary sanction) or not associated with the employee (e.g., job cancellation).

Notice Period

Notice period in the case of an employee dismissal is a minimum of 20 working days for all jobs regardless of the employment contract. Employees may also terminate their employment agreement by resignation with prior notice of a maximum of 20 business days for non-management positions and 45 business days for management positions.

Severance Pay

There is no statutory severance pay in Romania unless conditions have been set in a collective agreement.

Probation Period

The probationary period in Romania is dependent on the type of role and is stipulated within the employment agreement. In general, probation periods are 90 calendar days increasing to 120 calendar days for an employee in a managerial/supervisory position.

  • Meal vouchers
  • Gifts, including gift vouchers and holiday gifts, cultural vouchers, and holiday vouchers
  • Transportation allowance
  • Private pension & private health
  • Developmental courses and training gym subscription
  • Life insurance

EU citizens wishing to work in Romania should apply for a registration certificate from the Romanian Office for Immigration for a stay of more than 90 days. Non-EU citizens need to obtain a residency permit if the stay is longer than 90 days

Foreign workers must obtain work authorization from the Romanian Office for Immigration via an application from the employer. Employers must prove that they are a legitimate business in Romania and that they have made every effort to recruit a Romanian national to fill the role. They must also ensure that the proposed employee is suitably qualified, having had suitable education and training, for the role.

There are several types of work permits that may be applied for and subsequently completed and submitted to the General Inspectorate of Immigration by the employer:

  • Work permit for permanent workers: For foreign employees who have an indefinite or fixed-term employment contract.
  • Cross-border worker: A foreign employee who is from a country that borders Romania and has an indefinite or fixed-term employment contract.
  • Highly qualified worker: A foreign employee that has obtained a highly skilled job in Romania. The term of employment must be for at least one year.

Most work permits are valid for one year, however, permits for highly skilled workers are valid for two years.

What happens if our employee works the standard 40 hours + 8 hours in overtime a week?

Emily Kuhnert

In Romania, a standard workweek is 40 hours, and an additional 8 can be worked in overtime. Above this, employers can be fined 3,000 RON when an employee works more than this. However, it is important to note that the employee is not entitled to overtime compensation when they chose to work overtime on their own, either the employer must request this or overtime must be carried out due to an emergency and work could not have been completed during normal working hours. In addition, the average work hours per week is taken over a period of 4 months, so this means that an employee could technically work more than 48 hours in one week.


Deduction of Social insurance contribution – 25% from the expact(non EU national) will that refund to employee when contact period over or what happen with it?

Erez Greenberg

Hi, Anju. It depends on the country where the ex-pat is from. Usually, the contribution is recognized in the resident country where retirement/pension funds will come from and with which Romania has an agreement.

In what cases can an employer unilaterally change the terms of an employment agreement?

Hi Nicholai, thank you for your question. In general, any changes to the employment agreement must be agreed upon by the employer and employee through an addendum to the original contract. There are only 2 things that an employer can change without the employee’s consent, which are relocation and secondment.

Employee benefits in Romania: All you need to know

Bruce Gilbert

If you’re looking to expand your team globally, you’ll soon discover that hiring employees in other countries can get complicated. Employers need to understand the statutory benefits required in a foreign country like Romania (as well as the in-market expectations for compensation) before developing a compliant employment contract.

Remote has been built for this exact purpose. Our team of global HR experts makes it easy to understand your obligations as an employer of Romanians or any other workers from around the world.

As an experienced employer of record with entities all over the world, Remote’s team can take the risk and the hassle out of managing a competitive and compliant benefits package across multiple countries (including Romania).

Which workers are entitled to benefits in Romania

Statutory employee benefits, supplemental benefits to consider for romanian employees, how to set up and manage benefits for international employees, when should you use an employer of record.

In this guide to benefits for Romanian employees, we’ll explain the mandatory benefits you must provide as well as additional perks you can offer to give your business an edge in attracting top talent. We’ll walk you through the following key elements of hiring in Romania:

Which workers are entitled to benefits in Romania?

What are the statutory benefits you must provide by law

Additional benefits to attract quality Romanian talent

(All ready to start hiring in Romania? Visit Remote’s Guide to hiring employees and contractors in Romania for more detailed information that will help you get started right away.)

Statutory benefits, also known as mandatory benefits, are entitlements that employers are obligated by law to provide to their employees. Common examples include benefits like paid annual leave, parental leave, worker's compensation insurance, and paid sick leave.

The Romanian government, like many others, requires employers to provide their workers with a minimum amount of employee benefits. Employees in Romania are entitled to standard employee benefits as required by the Romanian government. Employees are any people who work for an employer and get paid a wage.

You must minimize misclassification risk

Independent contractors in Romania are not entitled to any specific statutory benefits. Any benefits or remuneration are determined by the specific contractual agreement between your business and the contractor.

Employers need to understand the nuances involved in this determination, and when you’re attempting to classify employment relationships – your global hiring can start to get more complicated.

Regardless of whether you consider a worker to be an employee or a contractor, legislators will make the only determination that matters. If you’re found to have an employment relationship and you haven’t provided the required entitlements, your company will face the risks of misclassification and any subsequent fines or penalties.

For more detailed information about understanding this concept, be sure to read our dedicated guide to employee misclassification .

The government of Romania sets the standards for statutory employee benefits. These benefits are generally required for all employees, with a few exceptions. The most common benefits include maternity leave, sick leave, vacation, and social security.

There are several standard employee benefits mandated by the Romanian government, which employers are obligated to provide by law.

Annual leave in Romania

Employees are entitled to 20 days of paid annual leave per year, prorated according to the period worked. Employers are required to pay staff their salary at least five working days before the leave begins.

If an employee is unable to take all or part of their annual leave allowance in a year, the employer must carry it over to the first six months of the next year.

Employees who are covered by the pension and social insurance system and have made required payments are entitled to up to 180 days of sick leave within one year, with a potential 90-day extension, under the Labor Code.

The employer pays the employee a daily rate during the first five calendar days; from then on, the FUNASS (Unique National Fund of Health Insurances) covers the payment of sick leave.

Sick pay is 75% to 100% of an employee's average monthly earnings during the previous six months of work, depending on the type of illness.

Maternity and parental leave

Romanian legislation allows a standard of 126 days of maternity leave, with 63 days allowed before the expected date and 63 days after the expected date. The employee can get more than 63 days for each of the phases, but he or she must be able to take at least 42 days' worth of benefits after the due date.

Maternity leave is regarded as medical leave, with the employee's physician determining how many days are assigned to each part of the period. This benefit amounts to 85.00% of the average salary paid for the previous 12 months before childbirth.

In addition to maternity leave, parents may take advantage of a separate paid leave provision to raise a young child, up to age two, or if the child has a disability. During this time off, the parent is compensated at a rate proportionate to the income they had before taking leave. If a parent returns to work before the two-year period ends, he or she is eligible for incentives. The employer does not pay the indemnity.

Parents also have the legal right to paid leave if their children are under the age of 12 and are attending schools where classes were canceled owing to exceptional circumstances such as extreme weather or a medical emergency. However, this type of leave is only available to one parent and can only be utilized if both parents do not work from home.

Pension plans and retirement contributions

The retirement age for men is 65 and for women 63. To be insured, both employees and employers in Romania are required to pay into the social and health insurance system. Old-age pensions are given to Romanian individuals who have completed the required length of contribution in the public pension system and have reached the stipulated retirement age.

Individuals who have worked for at least 15 years and made a minimum number of contributions are eligible for pension benefits. For both genders, the period is calculated as 35 years.

If non-Romanian citizens have a residence permit, they are entitled to all benefits provided by Romanian law in the field of social security. The share of the employee's gross salary that is paid is set yearly, differentiated between employee and employer, and calculated on total salary.

For employees, the general amounts contributed are as follows:

social insurance is 25%

health insurance contribution is 10%

Employers must also make contributions of 2.25% for labor insurance for all workers and pension contributions of 4% or 8% for each employee depending on the circumstances. There are a small collection of other mandatory contributions:

Medical Leave Indemnity contribution is 0.47%

Work Accident or Professional Disease Indemnities contribution is 0.05%

Residual collection - work insurance contribution is 1.1%

There is no additional social insurance contribution paid by the employer for employees in ordinary working conditions. However, some exceptions apply in particular circumstances.

Along with this, employers are obligated to pay a labor insurance contribution of 2.25%. The law does contain certain exceptions in the case of the construction industry.

Overtime and minimum wage

From January 1, 2022, the Romanian minimum wage in the country is now RON 2,300 to RON 2,550 per month. Individuals with at least one year of seniority in higher education are eligible to receive RON 2,350.00 a month or RON 13.88 an hour.

Romania's labor law sets a maximum of five eight-hour days per week and no more than 48 hours weekly (including overtime). A part-time employee must work at least ten hours each week, two hours every day. Employees under the age of 18 are not permitted to work more than six hours a day or thirty hours per week.

Employers must keep track of each employee's daily work hours and submit records to the labor inspection control as needed.

Employers must provide a 24-hour rest period after completing a 12-hour day. Paid time off is required for work completed outside of the normal 8 hours per day, 40 hours per week. This paid time off must be given within 60 days of overtime work being performed.

If compensatory time off is not feasible, the employee must be compensated by adding a benefit that shall not be less than 75% of his or her base wage, prorated for any overtime worked.

Workers under the age of 18, part-time employees, and pregnant workers who are unable to work normal working hours for health reasons are not authorized to work overtime.

Health insurance

There are no mandated insurance provisions for employees under Romanian law. This means employers don’t need to provide health insurance.

However, Remote strongly advises all companies hiring Romanian employees to offer private health insurance as part of an equitable benefits plan. This communicates your genuine care and helps build a stronger connection with your globally distributed team.

Some global companies may opt out of offering private health insurance in this instance, but it is still relatively common for progressive local employers to offer health insurance to their employees.

Indeed, offering a health insurance benefit, or other additional insurance benefits (like dental insurance, vision insurance, and life insurance), can be such an effective way to build trust with new hires and separate your offer from that of a competitor.

Beyond what is government-mandated, we strongly encourage employers to offer extra incentives and provisions to all of their employees regardless of minimum statutory requirements.

Remote cares passionately about providing perks and benefits to enable your global team to enjoy security, stability, and work-life balance. Our team of internal HR specialists and global benefits experts are constantly working with our customers to create customized and competitive benefits packages to attract top talent .

Romania is one of Europe’s more competitive emerging labor markets, especially in the field of software engineering. Offering the bare minimum will reduce your chances of hiring the best local talent. Workers are starting to seek out certain perks now that remote work is readily available with businesses across the world (we explain in more detail in our values-based benefits guide ).

Additional perks can act as powerful motivators for star candidates to join and stay with a given company and we’ve gathered a short list below for you to consider:

personal learning and development budget

therapy or coaching allowances

mentorship programs

volunteering days

birthday leave

meal and travel expenses

gym or health club membership

The size of your business shouldn’t prevent you from sourcing international talent either. If you’re a smaller business looking to employ a Romanian (or any other international worker), your benefits plan can still be both attractive and affordable. This small business guide to affordable global benefits will help you find inexpensive perks that international employees will love.

Whether you’re hiring a software engineer from Romania , a CFO from India , or an SEO manager from Singapore , you need to understand how benefits work in each nation to maintain compliance and (and keep your offer competitive in the local market).

But how can you manage to stay compliant with all of the ever-changing local labor laws in each country you are hiring across the globe?

Instead of building a fully-owned local legal entity with a specialist HR function in each new market, an employer of record provides a cost-effective, fast, and secure alternative to help you grow your team across borders.

If you don’t have an established process to manage the complicated parts of scaling global hiring (in Romania or further afield), an employer of record like Remote will give you immediate relief.

Remote’s EOR service gives you the advantage of dedicated local employment experts that can offer the insight you need to create a strong benefits package, a compliant employment contract, and a competitive offer to your candidate.

We’ve previously dedicated an entire guide to when should you use an employer of record , but there are a few critical trigger areas where an EOR can dramatically minimize your risk:

Creating a competitive and compliant global benefits package

Managing the delivery of benefits in the safest, simplest, most efficient way

Setting up payroll for employees in multiple countries

Terminating an employee in compliance with local regulations, and

Protecting any IP & patents produced by your remote employees

An employer of record like Remote can manage the complicated parts of international employment so you don’t have to worry.

Market and Benchmark Insight Report for Romania – 2023

Romanians care about healthcare benefits the most because they are more comprehensive than what the state offers, and private clinics are preferred.

Mandatory Employee Benefits in Romania

For the time being, there are three pension schemes in place in Romania:

  • Pillar 1 = mandatory contributions to the Public Pensions System (21,25% for employees, as of 1/1/18). For normal working conditions, the employer contribution is 0%. The employer would be required to contribute 4% or 8% for difficult working conditions, depending on the conditions.
  • Pillar 2 = mandatory contribution to Private Pension Funds (3,75% for Employees, as of Jan 1st,2018)
  • Pillar 3 = concerns the contribution to Voluntary Private Pension Funds. Contribution is optional (more details under supplementary employee benefits below).

Pillar 1 and 2 pension contributions are paid by employers to the state and are not something Romanian citizens usually contribute directly. Instead, employers deduct these contributions from salary and pay them monthly. Income tax is calculated after deducting social contributions from gross salary.

Pension income can start as early as age 60. Individuals who have completed a minimum contribution period of at least 15 years are eligible for pension benefits. The complete period is 35 years for men and women.

The normal retirement age is 65 for men and 62 for women.

For Pillar 1 pensions, the current pension point value is 1.785 RON. The benefit results from multiplying the average lifetime-accumulated number of pension points (average rating) by the pension point value.

The Pillar 2 private fund option belongs to the employee, and the employer still makes the payment. Participation in the Pillar 2 pension is compulsory for all employees below age 35 who are insured for the first time or are contributing to the public fund. It is optional for employees up to age 45 to contribute to the public retirement fund.

Death and long-term disability benefits apply as part of social security for all contributing employees. In the case of death, the benefit is payable to the surviving spouse, tutor, or child. The contribution is in the retirement contribution.

Public System Healthcare

According to Law 95/2006, all citizens with residence in Romania, and all foreign citizens and stateless persons with residence in Romania, must participate in, and contribute to, the public health system.  Exceptions apply for the following:

  • Children under age 18 and persons under age 26 attending school and do not have income from work
  • Disabled people without employment income
  • People persecuted by the former communist regime, deported persons, war veterans, and also those who have special rights established by law
  • Retired insured persons who have revenues under the income tax limit
  • Pregnant women and women after childbirth who do not have income from work or have an income lower than the minimum gross national salary
  • Members of a family entitled to social help
  • Individuals receiving unemployment indemnity
  • Individuals on medical leave for temporary disability due to a work accident or a professional disease
  • Parents on leave, raising a child to age 2 or age 3 for children with a handicap

All insured individuals have rights to ambulatory medical services, hospital care, intensive care, dental services, urgent medical services, prescription drugs, preventative, rehabilitation, prenatal and postnatal assistance, treatment in balneary resorts, plastic and reparatory surgery, and physiotherapy services.

Husbands, wives, and parents without their income and in the care of the insured person are eligible to be added as dependents.

The contribution is 10% of the gross salary for employees.

Paid Time Off

  • Annual Leave – 20 days is the minimum holiday guaranteed by law per year, pro-rated with the worked period.
  • Public Holidays – there are 15 public holidays .

Sick Days/ Short-Term Disability Benefit

Sick leave is only paid if the employee has a minimum contributory period to the Health House for the prior six months, based on a medical certificate issued by a physician.

The employer pays the first 5 calendar days. From the 6th day, the National Health Fund supports the medical allowance. In practice, the employer is also paying the amount supported by the National Health Fund and then requests reimbursement from the Health House.

The payment percentage in case of the sick leave allowance ranges between 75% and 100% of the calculation base (average of the employee’s monthly gross wages during the last 6 months before the month the medical leave is granted).

The benefit is payable up to 180 days; if the disability is prolonged, a long-term disability pension is proposed.

The contribution to social security is 2.25% of gross salary, with no ceiling.

Maternity Leave

Maternity leave is 126 calendar days (usually 63 days before + 63 days after the child’s birth). It represents 85% of the calculation base (the average of the employee’s monthly gross wages during her last 6 months before the month the maternity leave started). The maternity leave is granted based on the medical certificate issued by the physician.

Insured individuals can also take medical leave days each year as follows:

  • 45 days to care for their sick children up to age 7 or disabled children up to age 18.
  • Up to 90 days to care for children with contagious diseases or paralysis.

The National Health Fund grants the maternity allowance (in practice, the employer pays the maternity leave, and afterward, he requests reimbursement from the Health House).

Paternity Leave

Fathers are entitled to 10 days of paid paternity leave which can be used until the child reaches the age of 8 weeks. If the father chooses to participate in childcare courses, leave can be extended for 5 days for each child.

Parental Leave

Parental leave entitlement last until the child is 2 years old. In the case of a disabled child, leave is until the child is 3 years of age. The state institution makes the payment directly and represents 85% of the employee’s average revenues during his last 12 months of activity. During this period, the employment contract is suspended.

During this period, the company can hire another employee for the same position, but only on a temporary contract, and cannot terminate the parent employee.

Other Leaves

  • Bereavement Leave­ – 2 days of unpaid leave are granted to an employee who has had a death within their immediate family.
  • Marriage leaves – 5 days for an employee’s marriage and 2 days for the marriage of a child.
  • Blood donation leave — 1 day of paid leave is granted.
  • Caregiver’s leave – 5 working days within a calendar year to provide personal care or support to a relative or a person living in the same household as the employee who needs significant care or support due to a serious medical condition. This leave is granted in addition to the classic care leave (sick childcare and adult cancer care leave – the latter being recently introduced).
  • The right to be absent from work in case of family emergencies for a maximum of 10 working days/year, subject to prior notification to the employer and with the recovery of the period of absence. The employer and the employee establish by mutual agreement how to recover the absence period.

Workers’ Compensation/Work Accidents/Professional Diseases

In Romania, the state still handles the whole system through funds collected monthly from employers and employees. According to Law 346 / 2002, the Public System grants the following compensations in case of work accidents and/or professional diseases:

  • Indemnity for temporary or permanent disability
  • Death following a work accident
  • Indemnity for loss of body integrity
  • Indemnity for a temporary change of the current job due to work accidents/ professional disease

For personal accidents and professional diseases, facultative insurance products are available in addition to the benefits offered by the state system.

No workmen’s compensation facultative insurance product is in place due to the lack of legislation in this field.

Premium related to Personal Accidents Insurance is not tax-free from a fiscal point of view. Still, the indemnities received following Personal Accidents claims are tax-free and independent from any other compensation given by the state.

Child Allowance

Parents have a right to a child allowance, payable until age 18. If a child is disabled or continues to attend school in a state-recognized education program, benefits can be payable to age 26. The state child allowance is not taxable. Its monthly value as of Feb 1 st , 2022, is:

  • RON 277 for children ages 2 to 18
  • RON 683 for each child up to age 2 (or up to age 18, if disabled).

State budget allocations fund these child allowances.

Supplementary Employee Benefits in Romania

Pillar 3 concerns the contribution to Voluntary Private Pension Funds. Contribution is optional (minimum €10/person/month, maximum 15% of gross). The plan is defined contribution (DC).

Once the contribution plan is set up with the pension fund, with the employer, the pension fund opens a personal account for every employee so that the individual can have full access to their net asset balance and the evolution of its funds over the years. As soon as the enrollment is done, the financial flow runs automatically, and the monthly contributions are accumulated into the employee’s personal account.

For private pension plans, which are still not widely implemented, the contributions are split between the employee and the company, with the company usually paying 50% to 100% of the contribution.

The right to voluntary pension opens at the request of the participant, subject to the following cumulative conditions:

  • The participant has reached the age of 60.
  • At least 90 monthly contributions have been paid.
  • The personal asset is at least equal to the amount required to obtain the minimum voluntary pension provided by the rules adopted by the commission.

As of 2020, there are 10 pension funds available on the local market applicable for Pillar 3 pensions. The plan structure is strictly regulated by law.

For Pillar 3 Pensions, the contribution is considered tax-free for the employer up to the limit of €400 per year/ per person and for the employee up to the limit of €400 per year/per person.

Private Medical Insurance

This is highly recommended and is one of the most popular benefits for employees, mainly due to the inadequacy of the public system. Employers usually cover all employees and have the option to extend to family members (spouse/children; for larger groups, they can also be extended for partners or parents/siblings). The employee usually funds family extensions, with exceptions in highly competitive industries such as IT.

This coverage can include outpatient coverage (consults with GP or specialists, lab tests or investigations, high tech imaging), inpatient coverage (room & board, medication/treatment during stay in hospital, surgery + consumables and accessories used in the surgery room), road ambulance/emergency room, medical recovery, maternity (pregnancy monitoring, birth), dental, vision, cancer, and critical illness extensions.

Direct subscription to clinics is also a popular complementary or even alternate option to a medical insurance plan, with more focus on prevention services, but usually without access to hospitalization or surgical interventions. By comparison, medical insurance usually offers more comprehensive coverage, such as complex investigations, hospitalization, and birth. Additionally, medical insurance offers access to any private medical facility in Romania with direct settlement or reimbursement for out-of-network services.

The contribution for medical insurance is considered tax-free for the employer up to the limit of €400 per year per person and the employee up to the limit of €400 per year per person.

Business Travel Insurance

The employer usually funds this insurance only for employee business travel. Coverage usually includes medical expenses incurred during trips abroad following accidents, sudden illness and emergencies, and dental care subject to certain sub-limits (emergency). Coverage also extends to additional costs with relatives who assist the victim, repatriation, luggage insurance, and personal liability.

Group Life and Disability Insurance

This is usually fully funded by the employer for all employees. The primary coverage available is death by any cause (illness, accidents), and it is customary to cover 1-2x annual salary or a lump sum insured for the entire group.

Customary riders:

  • Permanent total or partial disability (illness, accidents) – customary to cover % of the same sum insured as death coverage.

Other available riders:

  • Indemnity for critical illness
  • Daily cash benefit for temporary disability (days of hospitalization and/or ambulatory plus days of
  • convalescence)
  • Daily cash benefits for medical expenses up to different sub-limits
  • Indemnity for surgical intervention expenses up to different sub-limits
  • Indemnity for broken bones (following accidents)
  • Indemnity for burns (following accidents)

The insurance premium bears the tax on income and social contribution as on any other type of employee benefit. Insurance indemnities are tax-free.

Employee Perks in Romania

Other benefits available for employees can include the following:

  • Meal vouchers
  • Gift vouchers (for Christmas, Easter, Mother’s Day, and Children’s Day)
  • Performance bonus, holiday bonus
  • Gym membership
  • Work-from-home or Flexible hours programs
  • Transportation benefits – company bus, public transport allowances, bike allowances, fuel allowance, parking space, etc.
  • Workplace canteens

  • Company car – typically for sales positions, management positions, executives

Compensation & Benefits in Romania .

Country capital, romanian leu (ron).

Two critical aspects of any employment contract are compensation and benefits. When you expand operations to a new country, it can be challenging to identify what guaranteed benefits you need to give employees and what supplemental benefits they expect from their employer.

G-P can help you through the confusion. We are experts in Romanian compensation laws with an established PEO in the country. We will hire employees on your behalf, add them to our compliant payroll, and put them on our benefits plan to make sure you stay covered every step of the way.

Romania Compensation Laws

Romania’s minimum wage rose to 3,000 RON per month in January 2023. Romania’s labor code stipulates that an employee can only be paid the minimum wage for a two-year period, after which they must receive a raise.

Employees who work more than eight hours a day or 40 hours a week are also subject to overtime compensation. Employers can either pay employees overtime at 75% above the employee’s base salary or provide additional time off within 30 days of when the overtime work occurred.

Since some industries have collective bargaining agreements (CBAs), the Romania compensation laws you’ll need to follow could change. Make sure you check any applicable CBAs since you will need to adhere to those requirements as a minimum.

Guaranteed Benefits in Romania

Romania celebrates 11 public holidays during which employees get the day off. As part of your Romania benefit management plan, you’ll need to give employees at least 20 days off per year. They are also entitled to additional days off for personal reasons, including five days for marriage and two days for the marriage of an employee’s child.

Another guaranteed benefit is the country’s universal free health care system. However, some services must be paid for up front and then reimbursed. Many employees may try to purchase private health insurance since public care is not often up to the standards of other countries.

Romania Benefits Management

A strong Romania benefit management plan also includes additional benefits that may not be required by law but can attract candidates to your open positions. In Romania, employers do not typically provide private health insurance, although employees may look for a plan themselves. However, employers commonly offer meal vouchers to employees, which are a tax-free benefit.

Putting together the perfect benefit management solution on your own takes time and money. Alternatively, G-P can simplify the process. Our Employer of Record platform enables us to hire employees who work on your behalf. We also take on matters of compliance, so you only have to worry about running your company instead of paying employees.

Restrictions for Benefits and Compensation

Any benefits and compensation restrictions typically come from a CBA. Employers should look over any applicable CBAs before drafting an employment contract. Otherwise, you risk outlining the wrong minimum requirements in your contract.

Romania Competitive Benefits Planning

Growing your enterprise in a new country comes with several tasks, including benefits planning. You’ll need to learn about a new labor market and how you can make your benefits packages appealing to nationals. With a strategic approach to planning, you can support your success abroad with employee benefits in Romania.

Romania Employee Benefits Plans

Creating a competitive benefits plan can make your business stand out from other companies in the labor market. Applicants tend to show more interest in jobs with developed benefits plans. The benefits you offer your employees can also help you improve retention.

Potential perks can include:

  • Supplemental insurance or pensions
  • Holiday bonuses
  • Meal allowances
  • Housing stipends
  • Travel allowances
  • Professional training
  • Telecommuting opportunities

Legal Obligations for Benefits

While your supplemental provisions and perks will make your company competitive, you need to consider your legal obligations first. As an employer, you must provide:

  • Social security contributions
  • Paid public holidays
  • Paid annual leave
  • Maternity leave

Designing Romania Employee Benefit Plans

As you design your benefits plan, you’ll want to balance your company’s available resources with your employees’ needs. While every country has different laws and expectations, you can follow a few basic steps to create a competitive plan anywhere.

1. Understand Your Company’s Revenue and Goals

Benefit costs can add up, so it’s essential to understand your revenue and how much you’re willing to spend. Consider your other expenses and create a budget. Keep in mind that you can adjust your budget later as your business grows and you have more resources available.

You should also assess your goals in this stage. You may be able to use your benefits plan as a way to achieve them. For example, if you want to build a large team, you can opt for smaller benefits packages and hire more employees. If you want to improve retention, you might scale back on hiring and recruiting and offer more supplemental benefits.

2. Learn About the Market and Employee Expectations

To make your company competitive in the labor market, you need to learn about other companies’ benefits. Research businesses in the area with similar size and industry to yours. When you know what other companies provide for their employees, you’ll have an idea of what workers expect.

You can also learn about employee needs and expectations by talking to workers directly. Distribute surveys or conduct interviews to hear from employees and learn which benefits they’re most interested in.

3. Use the Information You’ve Gathered to Create a Plan

After you’ve conducted some research, you can create a plan that balances your resources with employees’ needs. Start by allocating funds to the required benefits. Once you’ve met the threshold for compliance, you can choose supplemental provisions.

Average Cost of Benefits

Every company offers different benefits at various scales, so an average cost wouldn’t be a fair reflection of what you can expect to spend. Creating a budget for your benefits can help you set spending expectations and prevent you from going over your allotted funds.

How to Calculate Benefits

Calculations will vary based on the benefits you offer. In Romania’s labor laws, you can find guidance for calculating required provisions like maternity leave and social insurance contributions. For example, employers must contribute 35 percent of employee paychecks for social and health insurance. Employees must contribute 6.25 to 10.25 percent depending on their sectors.

How Are Employee Benefits Taxed in Romania?

Benefits in cash and in-kind are generally taxable income in the country. However, there are some exceptions. Nontaxable benefits include:

  • Expenses paid for business-related travel
  • Reimbursable loans provided without interest or at a low rate
  • Contributions to a voluntary pension fund up to 400 Euros a year
  • Private health insurance paid by employers up to 400 Euros a year

Company vehicles are also partially tax-exempt. Vehicle-related expenses are 50 percent deductible according to corporate tax legislation.

Employee Health Benefits

The country has a public healthcare system paid for by a portion of social insurance contributions. Employers are not required to provide private health insurance schemes for this reason. However, supplemental insurance is available, and some companies offer it as a fringe benefit.

Benefits in cash and in kind are generally taxable income in the country. However, there are some exceptions. Nontaxable benefits include:

  • Medical assistance that cannot postponed
  • Scheduled travel by train or plane

The full text of Decision 91 in Romanian can be found  here .

Effective October 22, 2021, a European Union Digital COVID Certificate or Romanian-issued “Digital Green Certificate/Green Pass” is necessary to access many public locations and to participate in certain activities such as: indoor or outdoor seated dining at restaurants, access to shopping malls, museums, exhibitions, cultural sites, non-essential stores, swimming pools, gyms and other venues. The Green Pass is not required for locations that provide essential services, such as food stores, pharmacies with direct access, or religious services.

The Digital Green Certificate/Green Pass may be obtained by individuals who were vaccinated in Romania, and by Romanian citizens and their foreign spouses who were vaccinated abroad or in Romania. U.S. citizen visitors cannot obtain a Green Pass in Romania. Additional information is available  here .

Please note that while Romanian authorities will accept a CDC vaccination card as proof of vaccination upon entry into Romania to avoid quarantine, it may not be accepted by all the venues within the country. The Government of Romania has not issued an explicit policy for acceptance of vaccine documentation issued outside of the European Union, so the decision has been left to individual venues to verify the vaccination status to avoid a fine. If you are told that you cannot enter the venue, consider asking if there is another staff member who might recognize and accept your vaccination card.

The U.S. Embassy cannot help you obtain a Green Pass.

Entry requirements

This advice reflects the UK government’s understanding of current rules for people travelling on a full ‘British citizen’ passport from the UK, for the most common types of travel.

The authorities in Romania set and enforce entry rules. If you’re not sure how these requirements apply to you, contact Romania’s Embassy in the UK .

COVID-19 rules

There are no COVID-19 testing or vaccination requirements for travellers entering Romania.

Passport validity requirements

To enter Romania your passport must:

  • have a ‘date of issue’ less than 10 years before the date you arrive. Passports issued after 1 October 2018 are now valid for only 10 years, but for passports issued before 1 October 2018, extra months may have been added if you renewed a passport early
  • have an ‘expiry date’ at least 3 months after the day you plan to leave

Check the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for the latest guidance on passport validity.

Contact the Romanian embassy in the UK if you think that your passport does not meet both these requirements. Renew your passport if you need to.

Passport stamping

At the Romanian border your passport may be stamped when you enter and exit Romania. Border guards will use passport stamps to check you have not overstayed the 90-day visa-free limit for short stays in Romania.

You can show tickets or boarding passes as evidence of when and where you entered or exited Romania. Ask the border guards to add this date and location in your passport.

If you have a Withdrawal Agreement residency document for another country, your passport might still be stamped if you are a visitor to Romania.

You may also need to:

  • show a return or onward ticket
  • show you have enough money for your stay

Read about passport stamping if you live in Romania .

Visa requirements

You can visit Romania for up to 90 days in any 180-day period without a visa. This applies if you travel:

  • as a tourist
  • to visit for family or friends
  • to attend business meetings, cultural or sports events
  • for short-term studies or training

To stay longer (to work or study, for business travel or for other reasons) you will need to meet the Romanian government’s entry requirements. Check with the Romanian Embassy in the UK what type of visa and/or work permit you may need.

Your passport must be valid for at least 6 months after the end date of the visa.

If you stay in Romania with a Romanian residence permit or long-stay visa, this time does not count towards your 90-day visa-free limit for Romania.

Vaccination requirements

At least 8 weeks before your trip, check the vaccinations and certificates you need in TravelHealthPro’s Romania guide .

Customs rules

There are strict rules about goods that you can take into or out of Romania (in Romanian). You must declare anything that may be prohibited or subject to tax or duty.

Leaving Romania with children aged 17 and under

If you’re travelling with a child who holds Romanian citizenship, and you are not the child’s parent, or you are a parent but the other parent is not travelling with you, you may need to show notarised parental consent.

A list of the public notaries can be found on the website of the National Union of Public Notaries of Romania.

Although Romania is not part of the Schengen agreement, some airlines (i.e. Lufthansa) may refuse boarding at your point of origin or while transferring planes if your passport is not valid for at least three months beyond your intended date of departure; or your entry into the Schengen Area could be denied. For this reason, the U.S. Department of State – Bureau of Consular Affairs recommends that your passport has at least six months' validity remaining whenever you travel abroad.

Your pet may not travel to Europe until at least 21 days after the primary rabies vaccine.

2. Pet's Health Certificate The health certificate must prove that your pet has had all its shots and is healthy enough to travel. Although this certificate is technically valid for 4 months, it is recommended to be completed and endorsed by the USDA within 10 days of travel to avoid any customs issues upon arrival.

Romania Covid-19 Travel Restrictions & Entry Rules

Last updated: 11.04.2022

Romania covid-19 travel restrictions & entry rules.

If you’re looking for up to date info on Romania's Covid-19 travel restrictions and entry requirements due to the pandemic - this article is for you. Find out about entry rules for tourists, vaccination, quarantine and test requirements, public safety measures and all things Covid-related to help you plan your visit in 2022.

Also - should you visit Romania during Covid-19? YES! What's are the best things to do or visit in these conditions? Read on! Important: in 2021 we had a VERY busy season during June - Sept when everyone decided to travel and infection numbers were low. Since all our tours are private and we received a lot of requests many short-notice bookings got declined due to guides and their colleagues being unavailable.

  • we know travel during Covid-19 can be unpredictable but if you're planning to visit Romania in 2022 please consider booking your tours at least 7-10 days in advance or more to secure our guides' availability and give them time to prepare. If you need to cancel for 90% of our tours we only need 1-3 days advance notice to get a full refund

After the huge wave of Covid infections with the Omicron variant in Jan-Feb all over Europe, it seems the Coronavirus has become endemic and no longer as serious since everyone is either vaccinated or has developed immunity. Many countries all over Europe have lifted restrictions and no longer have travel requirements or checks in place.

The same is true for Romania: since 8.03 the state of alert has been lifted which means there are NO RESTRICTIONS that apply to foreign travellers wanting to visit Romania no matter where they come from. In fact, since 21.01 the colour-coded list of countries and travel restrictions that apply have been discontinued.

So travel and tourism in Romania is once again normal - hurray! Nevertheless, all our tours run with safety measures in place (cars are disinfected, guides weak masks in the car, etc.) as we want to protect everyone's health and continue welcoming tourists the safest conditions for everyone.

The pandemic hasn’t changed the beauty of our country. On the contrary, spending time outdoors going hiking, seeing the beautiful countryside of Transylvania and generally having an active holiday is the best – and safest – thing to do for our body and mind after so much time spent indoors!

Since 2017 when Romanian Friend was created our intention has always been to support small businesses and communities through responsible tourism. The past 2 years have been very challenging for everyone in the industry, with lots of people going out of business. So please consider booking tours with locals if you want to give back to the local economy, people and places you'll visit in Romania. We make sure all our tours use local products and services!

  • Last update: 11.04.2022 - we’re going to keep this article updated so please check it regularly. And if you have any questions contact us – we’re happy to help!

2. covid-19 public safety measures, 4. what to visit in romania during covid-19.

As of 8 March 2022 ALL foreign citizens are allowed to enter Romania for tourism and general purposes as the state of alert was lifted. No restrictions or checks apply.

Providing proof of vaccination, a certificate of recovery from COVID-19 or negative test results is no longer necessary, and travellers are not subject to quarantine anymore. No need to fill in a passenger locator form.

Put simply - Romania is open for tourism - so come visit!

Most restrictions have been lifted and all safety measures have now a "recommended" status

  • wearing a mask is NOT mandatory anymore (indoors or outdoors) but is recommended, especially indoors
  • all businesses and public institutions can set their own rules regarding wearing masks - so check for those
  • pubs, cafes and restaurants can work normally at maximum capacity
  • Covid checks are NOT required to access public facilities
  • tourist attractions such as castles and museums are open normally

Getting tested for Covid-19 in Romania is easy and simple. In every city there are private laboratories who do PCR tests (throat and/or nose swabs) and quick antigen tests (and issue a document for travel purposes). In most cases no appointment is required to get tested, you can just walk in. You can get the results over email or in a SMS in Romanian and/or English.

To find a Covid-19 test center use Google when in Romania (search for 'test Covid [city name]') or ask someone who speaks Romanian for help with finding the nearest testing centre. Call in advance to make sure they can take you and give you results within the time limit you need. You'll get results within as little as 12h and costs range from 20 - 50 Euro depending on how fast you need them.

At A Glance

  • Romania's large size and somewhat difficult infrastructure make it inefficient and difficult for travelers to get around. Although the transportation system continues to improve, roads are still inefficient. Train travel has improved dramatically due to some recent upgrades to the system, but ongoing projects on certain tracks continue to slow trains down. It is best to research the current situation before you begin planning your trip.
  • The Orthodox Church plays a significant role in Romania's culture. It is one of the most religious countries in Europe, and your visit will likely include some churchs and monasteries. Another unique experience is to visit an Orthodox Mass. It is not uncommon to show up for only a portion of the service. Make sure you are dressed appropriately and show respect to the worshippers. Do note that you can not participate in communion unless you are baptized Orthodox. By attending mass you can truly experience a part of the Romanian culture and have a unique experience away from the tourist attractions.
  • If you're interested in doing some local shopping a great way to do this is to visit a weekly fair (referred to as a targ, balci or obor). They are usually held on a Sunday and are a great way to see an authentic part of Romania. Almost anything is available for sale including live animals, clothes, vegetables, and perhaps even farm equipment such as tractors. There is often music, dancing and food stalls as well.
  • Wine making in Romania dates back more than 2000 years. The best wineries in the country are Murfatlar, Cotnari, Dragasani, Bohotin and Bucium among others. The quality is generally high but the prices are low so it's a great place to sample a few wines or purchase some to bring home.
  • Brewing beer is also popular in Romania. It remains cheap compared to the rest of Europe but the best options are those in the glass bottles or cans. Imported beers are much more expensive than Romanian beers and many international brands are brewed in Romania under a license so they taste very different than elsewhere in Western Europe.

Winter fuel payment: Who is eligible, how much is it and when is it paid?

Millions of pensioners will receive a winter fuel payment to help towards higher heating bills - here's what you need to know about how and when it will be paid, who is eligible and what to do if you don't get paid.

The winter fuel payment is aimed at helping pensioners pay for higher fuel bills during the colder months. 

About 11.5 million pensioners will receive up to £600 - this amount includes a £300 per household pensioner cost of living payment.

Here is everything you need to know about when and how the payment will be made, who is eligible, and what to do if you don't receive your payment.

Who is eligible for the winter fuel payment?

You can get a winter fuel payment if you were born before 25 September 1957.

You usually need to live in the UK to qualify for the payment.

But if you moved to an eligible country before 1 January 2021, and have a "genuine and sufficient link to the UK" - such as living and working here previously - you will qualify.

The eligible countries are Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Sweden, and Switzerland.

There are some cases where you will not be eligible, including if you have been in hospital for all of the last year, if you were in prison for the whole of the week of 18 to 24 September 2023, and if you lived in a care home for the whole time from 26 June to 24 September 2023.

How much is the winter fuel payment?

The winter fuel payment is between £250 and £600.

If you live alone or no one you live with is eligible for the winter fuel payment, you will get either:

• £500 if you were born between 25 September 1943 and 24 September 1957 • £600 if you were born before 25 September 1943

If you live with someone else who is eligible for the winter fuel payment, the payment may be split between the two of you.

Exactly how that is done depends on when you were born and what benefits you receive.

Your payment may be different if you receive one of these benefits: pension credit, income-based jobseeker's allowance (JSA), income-related employment and support allowance (ESA), and income support.

If you and your partner jointly claim any of these benefits, one of you will get a payment of £500 if both of you were born between 25 September 1943 and 24 September 1957, or £600 if one or both of you were born before 25 September 1943.

If you do not claim the benefits jointly, you will get an individual payment: again, £500 if you were born between 25 September 1943 and 24 September 1957 or £600 if you were born before 25 September 1943.

If you do not get any of the benefits, you will get a payment of either:

• £250 if you and the person you live with were both born between 25 September 1943 and 24 September 1957 • £250 if you were born between 25 September 1943 and 24 September 1957 but the person you live with was born before 25 September 1943 • £350 if you were born before 25 September 1943 but the person you live with was born between 25 September 1943 and 24 September 1957 • £300 if you and the person you live with were both born before 25 September 1943.

Care home residents can still get the payment, but it is less.

Eligible care home residents will get £250 if they were born between 25 September 1943 and 24 September 1957 and £300 if they were born before 25 September 1943.

How do you get the winter fuel payment?

Most people get the winter fuel payment automatically.

If you're eligible, you should have received a letter in October or November saying how much you'll get.

You will get the payment automatically if you receive the state pension or another benefit, including pension credit, attendance allowance, personal independence payment (PIP), carers allowance, disability living allowance (DLA), income support, income-related employment and support allowance (ESA), income-based jobseeker's allowance (JSA), awards from the war pensions scheme, industrial injuries disablement benefit, incapacity benefit, and industrial death benefit.

If you do not get any of these, you will need to claim - but only if you've not got the payment before.

You'll also need to make a claim if you have deferred your state pension since your last winter fuel payment. Details on how to claim by post or phone are on the government website .

When is the winter fuel payment paid?

The winter fuel payment will be paid directly into your bank account in November or December.

It will appear in bank statements with the payment reference starting with the customer's National Insurance number followed by 'DWP WFP' for people in Great Britain, or 'DFC WFP' for people in Northern Ireland.

What should you do if the payment doesn't come through?

If you do not get a letter or the money has not been paid into your account by 26 January 2024, contact the winter fuel payment centre .
