FAQ: Why do you want to be Romanian?

Question
Congratulations! Once you have your Romanian passport, how will that help you with your professional goals?


Answer
Kind of personal / professional. IF I get the passport, then my husband and I would consider settling down there. It would be a halfway point between living in the US and living in Peru. It won't be his country, nor mine, but ours. We'd both have to struggle with things, but I think less so than if we went to our respective countries.

He could get citizenship. Romanian would be MUCH easier for him to adapt to both culturally and language wise (He's already able to translate gov't docs just due to knowing Spanish). I've heard the job market isn't the best there, so we're also considering Saudi for a bit to save. Hopefully by the time we leave Korea we'll be able to buy another flat in Peru and basically save all the rent we get and live off of whatever we make in Romania.

Basically, Europe would be open to both of us. Even if we don't work there, we could own property, send our kids to school, hopefully get pension, etc.

If I could stay in Korea for five years at this same job, my pension would go up a lot. If we had kids, then we'd have to decide whether to stay in Korea, move to Romania, or go to Saudi.

Question
Awesome, NG.

Acum, poti invata romaneste!!
Espanol le ayudara.

I'm a little envious. Congrats.


Answer

Don't be jealous just yet Wink I've still got to get the passport. If it makes you feel any better, I first called the consulate in fall 1999. This hasn't been easy! Anyways, finding out that the Ministry of Internal Affairs recognises my mom as a citizen is wonderful news!

Be sure to read about what has happened so far. You can find everything in the quick summary of dates.
