Romania’s Government has officially acknowledged that the country is facing an acute labor force crisis and has supplemented by 3,000 the number of foreign workers who can work in Romania this year, according to a Government Decision.
At the beginning of this year, the Government decided that the local market needs only 5,500 foreign workers from outside the EU this year.
In the last years, the country accepted 5,500 foreign workers every year. The Government has now decided to supplement this number by 3,000. This means that employers in Romania can hire 8,500 foreign workers this year.
Increasing the number of foreign workers “will secure the work force demand in certain sectors, which can’t be covered by Romanian workers,” according to the document attached to the Government Decision.
