FAQ: Can Romanians work in the EU?

Romanian citizenship will not grant you the legal right to work in Europe. Since Romania's not part of the EU, the process of obtaining a work permit in any European country is a nightmare most employers fear and try to avoid as much as possible. Your skills and qualifications will not matter when put into balance with the citizenship, you can trust me on that.

I know, but if they join in 2007, by then I should be Romanian and will have the legal right to work in the EU.

It wouldn't be until 2014 that citizens of those countries could work in the other EU countries without a permit. I know Ireland is an exception... Are there any others?

I don't know about Ireland or any other EU countries. However, even if I have to wait until 2014, it'll still be worth it. And my kids will also be able to live and work there too. Check the official EU website on where Romanians can work and when. There's also info about work permits from the official EU website and here's an article about restrictions placed on Bulgarians and Romanians. Even though Romania is in the EU, some EU countries will still require Romanians to get a work permit.
