ROMANIA – New Minimum Salary for Work Permits

, 20/12/2016

Effective 20 February 2017, the Romanian government has implemented new minimum salary requirements for foreign nationals.

New Minimum Salary


  • The new minimum salary required for foreign nationals with a standard work permit is 3131 RON/month (up from 2681 RON/month) which is equal to the national medium gross salary as set out in Law no.7 of 2017.
  • Highly skilled workers with a Blue Card are required to be paid four times this amount (approximately 12524 RON/month currently).
  • The employee must be paid at least another 1450 RON/month (up from 1050 RON/month) per accompanying dependent (equal to the national minimum gross salary).

Action Items

  • Ensure that foreign nationals’ employment contracts state that they are paid at least the minimum required salary according to their work permit type.
