A single bedroom apartment in Bucharest will cost between 1500 – 2500 lei (€310 – €516) per month. For a family moving to Romania, a three-bedroom apartment in the centre of Bucharest will cost around 2500 – 5000 lei (€500 – €1000) per month.

The job market in Romania

Moving to Romania from the UK, USA or other English-speaking countries, you might find the job market in Romania limited, as many businesses prefer to hire locals rather than deal with tough bureaucratic processes of hiring foreigners. Knowing the language will certainly give you more opportunities for jobs in Romania, and you can also look to the IT, communications, manufacturing and services industries.


Education in Romania

Public education is free for all residents of Romania, however, the quality of education is poorer than in most European countries. For this reason, many locals and expats moving to Romania from USA, UK or Europe consider sending their children to private schools which offer better quality resources. There are also international schools which teach in English located in Bucharest.

Elementary School
Age: 6 – 11
Compulsory: yes
Middle School
Age: 12-15
Compulsory: yes
Senior School
Age: 16-18
Compulsory: no

Healthcare in Romania

Similar to education, public healthcare in Romania is free for all citizens who are employed and is provided by the state, however, the quality of healthcare in Romania is very poor. If you are thinking of relocating from the USA to Romania or from anywhere else, you should make sure you have private healthcare insurance to cover you before you are employed in Romania.


Driving in Romania

Many expats from the UK and USA ask, do I need an international driving permit when driving in Romania? The answer is yes. If you are moving to Romania from outside of the EU, you should make sure you have an international permit, your local license, vehicle registration and carry your passport while driving. You will also need to exchange your license after 1 year.
For those moving to Romania from other European countries, you can continue to use your local license for as long as it is valid.
