Romanian Visa

X. Diplomatic visa and service visa (symbol DS)

Diplomatic and service visas (symbol DS) allow third-country nationals to enter the territory of Romania, usually for a long-term stay, provided that they are holders of diplomatic or service passports and that they are bound to exercise an official function as members of the staff of a foreign diplomatic mission or consulate accredited in Romania by their state of origin.

This type of visa is granted to holders of diplomatic or service passports, or to holders of travel documents that are assimilated with diplomatic or service passports, upon the request of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the sending state, or of a diplomatic mission or consulate of the latter, as well as to their family members with whom they cohabit, and such visas are valid over the period of the mission or in accordance with bilateral understandings to which Romania is party.
