Hello, my name is Kristen. I am a US Citizen preparing to go abroad to teach English in August/September, with the goal to teach in Timisoara, Romania.
I interviewed with one company, but was informed that I would need to interview in person, and have a CPN before hiring. I am wondering then if it would be possible for me to get clearance to work in Romania as a US Citizen?
I have been looking into visas/permits but I am not sure if I understand what applies to my situation. It looks like I would need to apply for a class D long-stay visa, and then extend this into a residence permit after finding employment. Another source said that I do not need to apply for a visa, but rather apply for the residence permit within 60 days of arrival. Another source said that I should apply for a work permit, but the employer will have to pay the fee.
There do not seem to be many people who have done this, so I was wondering if anyone who has relocated to Romania and found/followed employment could provide any more clarity of what sort of permit I should be looking at?
