The Ukrainian conflict has generated intense migration towards Romania. Due to this exceptional context, apart from a significant number of Ukrainian citizens, an increased number of migrants from Moldova and Russia has also been observed.
Although all three countries mentioned above are third party countries (i.e., not members of the European Union), even before the initiation of the conflict, the rules applicable to the access of their citizen to the Romanian labour market differed significantly, due to the fact that certain facilities were established for Moldovan and Ukrainian citizens. By way of Ordinance No. 20/2022, the Romanian Government has recently regulated additional facilities for the integration of Ukrainian citizens.
