After obtaining work permit in which country?

Meagan on 5 Jul 2019 - 07:55

Hi there. Because you are not an EU national or EU citizen, you'll need to apply for the relevant visas if you want to travel to Spain or the UK. Your purpose for going there will determine what kind of visa you need to get. If you intend to visit for a short period, you'll need to apply for a visit or tourist visa before travelling. You can read more about this on our pages for Visas for the UK and Visas for Spain. Hope this helps!

Hello dear

Thank you

Romania is an EU member, but it hasn't adopted the Schengen visa yet. Because of this, expats may need to apply for a separate visa for Romania. Expats planning to work in Romania may find the job market difficult to enter. Competition for jobs is high and salaries in Romania are relatively low. If you are planning on working in Romania, you would have to apply for an employment visa. Normally, the business in Romania who wants to employ you would have to apply for the work permit on your behalf. What kind of work are you planning on doing in Romania?
