Immigration is regulated on the basis of the National Strategy on Immigration 2007 – 2010.

Those who do not have legal papers to stay in Romania will be sent back to their country.

Migrants sex workers  without legal status are two time criminalized: as sex workers and as migrants.

After Romania joined the European Union, a large number of Romanian sex workers went to work in other European countries.

Persons from other EU countries working in legalised professions can easily work in Romania. This includes professions of ‘those offering services’,

which also means dancers and strippers. EU citizens can easily obtain a work permit based on EU-wide legislation.

Non-EU citizens must apply for a work permit from the Ministry of Labour and the company aiming to hire the applicant must prove that it was not able to find any Romanian citizen in the country fit for the job .
