ROMANIA – New Minimum Salary for Work Permits
Effective 1 January 2015, the Romanian government has implemented new minimum salary requirements for foreign nationals.
New Minimum Salary
The new minimum salary required for foreign nationals with a standard work permit is 2415 RON/month (approximately 540 EUR/month currently), which is equal to the national median gross salary as set out in Law no.187/2014. Highly skilled workers with a Blue Card are required to be paid four times this amount (approximately 2160 EUR per month currently).
- Ensure that foreign nationals’ employment contracts state that they are paid at least the minimum salary according to their work permit type.
