Increase Your Chances to Get a Work Permit in Romania with a Global PEO

When considering a move to Romania, many international companies are attracted by the country’s low costs and its high level of English fluency.

If you’re an employer looking to do business in Romania, you may have heard about the strict visa regulations for foreign employees.

Most employers are unfamiliar with the hiring process in Romania, but it’s worth noting that your company must obtain a work permit for each expatriate employee. This can be hard on its own, but it can become even more complicated for highly skilled professionals.
