Romania has updated the list of epidemiological risk: Turkey on red, Malta and the Netherlands on yellow, Luxembourg on green! (August 12)
On August 12, Romania updated the red list, along with the yellow and green lists. Turkey climbs the red list; while Malta and the Netherlands fall on the red list in the red zone; and Finland climbs the yellow from the green zone! Under the new law, Romania no longer requires the mandatory presentation of a negative PCR test on board, but it helps you get rid of quarantine if you travel in the yellow zone. All those traveling in the red zone will be quarantined if they are not completely vaccinated.
List with the classification of countries / territories according to the cumulative incidence rate, according to Decision no. 59 of 12.08.2021 of the National Committee for Emergency Situations.
The new list shall enter into force on 15 August 2021 at 00:00.
- If you are traveling in the red zone (eg Spain, Great Britain, etc.) to Romania, you will be quarantined for 14 days, having the possibility to shorten the quarantine if you test on the 8th day. The PCR test does not help you avoid quarantine. However, if you are vaccinated, you can be exempted from quarantine.
- If you are traveling in the yellow zone (eg the Netherlands, Malta, etc.) to Romania, you must present to the carrier the proof of performing a PCR test, with a negative result, performed at most 72 hours before boarding, in order to avoid quarantine. If you are vaccinated, testing and quarantine are no longer required.
- You can travel in the green area (eg Germany, Italy, Bulgaria, etc.) to Romania without restrictions and without tests, so you do not need to present any documents (other than travel) before boarding.
Children under the age of 6 or older do not need to be tested for PCR if they return from a yellow or red area!
Passengers with the European digital certificate COVID I no longer go through the DSP control from Henri Coandă - Otopeni airport!
The EU COVID-19 digital certificate will be the only proof of vaccination / testing recognized at the border crossing, from 13 August
The classification of countries / territories of epidemiological risk, according to the cumulative incidence rate at 14 days, is performed in 3 categories as follows:
- Green area - where the cumulative incidence rate of new cases of illness in the last 14 days per 1.000 inhabitants is less than or equal to 1,5;
- Yellow Zone - where the cumulative incidence rate of new cases of illness in the last 14 days per 1.000 inhabitants is between 1,5 and 3 per 1.000 inhabitants;
- The Red Zone - where the cumulative incidence rate of new cases of illness in the last 14 days in relation to 1.000 inhabitants is greater than or equal to 3 per 1000 inhabitants.
