If you have been tested or vaccinated in other European countries, you must download the EU COVID digital certificate from that country's platform.
Crossing borders is possible even without the existence of these certificates, but in compliance with the national quarantine rules of each state. These provisions are stipulated in EU Regulation 953/2021 and are applicable only for the crossing of the state border, not for the activities carried out inside the national territory of Romania.
