d. ^ The pre-arrival visa is a free Entry Permit Letter, obtained by e-mail request. The permit allows only the entrance. While in Abkhazia, visit the Consular Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Abkhazia, in Sukhumi, to obtain the actual visa which will serve as an exit permit document.
e. ^ If entering from Russia, do not exit to Georgia, because you will be subject to punishment and fines by Georgian customs. By Georgian law, crossing the Russian-Abkhazian border is considered a violation of the Georgian border regime (an illegal entry to Georgia), whereas Georgia doesn't recognize Abkhazia and considers it a part of its territory. From the Georgian law point of view, a legal travel into Abkhazia must be originated and ended in Georgia. Entering Abkhazia from Georgia and exiting by land to Russia (or by air or sea to another country) will be considered an illegal exit of Georgia. Try not to enter Georgia with a passport used to travel to Abkhazia by entering from Russia and then exiting back to Russia, or by entering from Georgia and then exiting to Russia.
f. Visas can be obtained only from Nagorno-Karabakh Republic's Permanent Mission in Armenia. Request consular or border officials to issue the visa or entry/exit stamps on a separate piece of paper, otherwise you won't be able to travel to Azerbaijan with that passport. Azerbaijan considers Nagorno-Karabakh Republic part of its territory and will revoke visa, turn away, deport or even arrest anyone who attempts to enter the country with a Karabakh visa and entry/exit stamp in his passport.
g. ^ Visitors intending to stay in Transnistria more than 24 hous must register with the local police (fee: 2 US Dollars).

Specific requirements[edit]

Passport validity[edit]

at least 1 year[edit]

In this particular case, some sources say 1 year, some sources say 6 months. To avoid complications, it is best to use a pssport with the longer time mentioned.

at least 9 months[edit]

The country requiring passport validity of at least 9 months on arrival is:

at least 6 months[edit]

Many countries require passport validity of no less than 6 months and one or two blank pages.[29]

at least 4 months[edit]

Countries requiring passport validity of at least 4 months on arrival are:

at least 3 months[edit]

Countries requiring passport validity of at least 3 months on arrival are:

at least 1 month[edit]

Countries requiring passport validity of at least 1 month on arrival are:

valid on exit[edit]

Other countries require either a passport valid throughout the period of intended stay.

Vaccination[edit]

Many African countries, including Angola, Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chad, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Republic of the Congo, Côte d'Ivoire, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, Ghana, Guinea, Liberia, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Rwanda, São Tomé and Príncipe, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Uganda, Zambia require all incoming passengers to have a current International Certificate of Vaccination. Some other countries require vaccination only if the passenger is coming from an infected area.[31]

Fingerprinting[edit]

Several countries including Argentina, Cambodia, Japan, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, South Korea and the United States demand all passengers to be fingerprinted on arrival.[32][33][34][35][36][37][38]

Rejection of Romanian passports[edit]

Romanian passport is recognized by all the countries in the world. Albeit, in some rare cases, Romanian citizens might be refused entry. Most common situations are:

Failure of meeting the criteria required on entrance by a specific country/territory is not an act of rejection of the Romanian passport as a document issued by the Romanian authorities.

Evidence of travel to Israel[edit]

Visitors with passport stamp or visa of Israel are not allowed to enter the following countries:[39][40][41][42][43][44][45][46][47][48]

Entering Israel by air seems the best option to avoid evidence of travel to Israel in the passport. The border guards from Ben Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv no longer stamp the passport, instead they issue a small pieces of blue paper that stand for the stay permit and entry stamp and a similar piece or pink paper that stands for exit permit and exit stamp. Entering and leaving Israel by air leaves no evidence of travel there in the passport.

Some border guards of the above countries might take the time to search the passport for evidence of travel to Israel such as entry stamps of Egypt or Jordan from land crossing points on their border with Israel or Palestine. The Egyptian or Jordanian entry stamp from the Egyptian-Israeli border or the Jordanian-Israeli border will be considered evidence of travel to Israel and access will be denied with that specific passport.

Evidence of travel to Nagorno-Karabakh Republic[edit]

Visitors with passport stamp and visa of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic are not allowed to enter the following country:

As a result of the Nagorno-Karabakh War between Azerbaijan and Armenia, Azerbaijan refuses entry to foreigners in general whose passport shows evidence of entry into the self-proclaimed Nagorno-Karabakh Republic, immediately declaring them permanent personae non gratae.[617]

At request, the Karabakh authorities may attach the visa to a separate piece of paper in order to avoid detetion of travel to their country.

Armenian name or ancestry[edit]

Azerbaijan authorities refuse entry to passport-holders of Romania and any other country if they have Armenian name or are of Armenian descent.

Persona non grata[edit]

The government of a country can declare a Romanian diplomat persona non grata, banning their access into the country. In non-diplomatic use, the authorities of a foreign country may declare a Romanian citizen persona non grata permanently or temporarily, usually because of unlawful activity. Attempts to enter the Gaza strip by sea may attract a 10 year-ban on entering Israel.[618]

Non-ordinary passports[edit]

Holders of various categories of official Romanian passports have additional visa-free access to the following countries - Algeria (diplomatic or service passports), Azerbaijan (diplomatic or service passports), Belarus (diplomatic or service passports), China (diplomatic or service passports), Ghana (diplomatic, official or service passports), India (diplomatic passports), Iran (diplomatic passports), Kazakhstan (diplomatic or service passports), Mongolia (diplomatic or official passports), Pakistan (diplomatic or official passports), Russia (diplomatic and service passports), South Africa (diplomatic, official or service passports), Tajikistan (diplomatic or service passports), Thailand (diplomatic or official passports), Turkmenistan (diplomatic or service passports), Uzbekistan (diplomatic, official or service passports) and Vietnam (diplomatic or service passports). Holders of diplomatic or service passports of any country have visa-free access to Cape Verde, Ethiopia, Mali and Zimbabwe.
