Hello, I am an American who desires to come to Romania to live. I have friends there and I want to come and learn the language and about your culture. I know I can come there solely on my passport for a period of up to 90 days, but I really want to stay beyond the 90 period. I would like to reside there for at least one year. I might attend classes for language. I am also a nurse here and although retired I could possibly do volunteer work helping elderly people or sick people in their homes. This is something I would be very happy to do. I just need to know what I would need to do to get permission to stay beyond the initial 90 period. I know I have to apply for visa, but I am not sure if that alone will help me to stay. Please advise me. Thank you!
