Let's clarify Romania's traffic light: those traveling with a PCR test in the yellow zone (Italy, Greece, Austria, Germany) are no longer in quarantine.

12 37.305

After many months on the yellow list, the authorities decided to reclassify the countries in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. Thus, the epidemiological index announced by ECDC is no longer taken into account, but the cumulative incidence rate at 14 days per 1000 inhabitants. Thus, from May 15, we have the red list, the yellow list, the green list.

Art.2 - (1) The classification of countries / territories of epidemiological risk, according to the cumulative incidence rate at 14 days, is performed in 3 categories as follows:

  1. 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;
  2. 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;
  3. 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.
  • The classification from the yellow or green zone to the red zone, as well as the classification from the green zone to the yellow zone, enters into force within 24 hours from the approval of the List of countries / territories of epidemiological risk by decision of the National Committee for Emergency Situations.
  • The classification from the red zone to the green or yellow zone, as well as the classification from the yellow zone to the green zone, enters into force on the date of approval of the List of countries / territories of epidemiological risk by decision of the National Committee for Emergency Situations.

Travel with a negative PCR test in the yellow zone and do not stay in quarantine at the entrance to Romania

And now let's clarify the situation a bit. Those traveling in the green area are not quarantined, do not need a test and no other restrictive measures apply. Those traveling in the yellow and red areas can be quarantined at their home / location for up to 14 days. But for both lists there are a number of exceptions.

Those traveling from the yellow zone, countries such as Italy, Greece, Austria, Germany, Spain, etc., can come with a negative PCR test and then no longer enter quarantine. People who have been completely vaccinated (with both doses for two-dose vaccines) against the new coronavirus are also exempted from the quarantine measure. Please note that 10 days must elapse after the booster dose (second dose).

Those traveling in the red zone are not exempt from quarantine if they travel with a negative PCR test. People who have been completely vaccinated (with both doses for two-dose vaccines) against the new coronavirus are excluded from the quarantine measure. Please note that 10 days must elapse after the booster dose (second dose).

But there are many other categories that are exceptions to these restrictive measures. Analyze Decision 28 and the traffic light list of Romania! * Those traveling from India to Romania do not benefit from the exceptions mentioned above.

Those in quarantine can obtain a temporary or total exemption from isolation in order to be able to participate in various family events (such as birth, marriage, death); medical treatments and interventions; for exchanging identity documents and even leaving the country. At the same time, those who are in quarantine and want to go to get vaccinated, can get a temporary derogation from the quarantine measure. All these exemptions can be obtained on the basis of supporting documents.

    Hello. But nothing is specified about the children. For example, I have tourists who left for Turkey today, they are vaccinated, but they have a child of 3, in September they are 4 years old. Does the baby have to be quarantined?

    1. Sorin Rusi says

      Yes, children and those who went through the disease were not included in the new update. We hope for an update of the information from the authorities.

      But check the exception area. If there are pupils / students they are exempted from quarantine.

    Hi! If a 12-year-old child comes from the yellow zone (Italy), with both parents vaccinated, where does he fit in? Do we have to test him there?

    1. Sorin Rusi says

      The child can take a PCR test and can be relieved of quarantine if the result is negative

  3. Silvana says

    Good evening! Does the 3-year-old need a PCR test?
    Since when do the new rules come into force? Thank you!

    1. Sorin Rusi says

      The new rules have already entered into force. We do not yet have clear information about children. Contact DSP for clarification.

    Hello.
    I have next weekend Friday - Monday Netherlands Romania tickets and return. The total duration of the stay in Romania is less than 72 hours. I'm coming to the booster appointment.
    What do you advise me to do the rappelling and come back before I go through quarantine? Do you think it is possible to obtain a waiver for the entire period of your stay in Romania?
    Thank you

    1. Sorin Rusi says

      Contact DSP. They offer exemptions, they can advise you exactly. The idea is that the 3-day stay in Romania based on a negative PCR test is no longer valid. The Netherlands is on the red, so it has no relevance, you would automatically go into quarantine. Talk to DSP best.

    Hi, I live in Jordan and in June I will go home to Romania, Jordan is classified in the green zone, do I still have to take a pcr test or not? where I have to ask to be one hundred percent sure

    1. Sorin Rusi says

      At this moment, May 16, 2021, all those who travel from the green area do not need anything. We don't know where Jordan will be in June. We follow the updates of the lists.

    Hello. If I am vaccinated, do I still need a PCR test? I come from the "yellow" country. 🙂
    Thank you.
