Border crossing: Ukrainians do not need a passport to enter Romania; the main thing is to declare your intention to seek asylum when crossing the border. To cross the border with children, no parental permission is required; only a birth certificate is required. Animals are also permitted without documentation.

Romania accepts Ukrainian refugees with minimal formalities and a streamlined procedure. In the country, six refugee centers have been established. Timisoara, Maramures, Suceava, Giurgiu, Tulcea, and Bucharest are among them. The Romanian government provides free housing to mothers from Ukraine who have orphans. Meals are served for free until the situation is resolved.

"The European Union's decision provides for the right of Ukrainian citizens and residents to live, work, receive medical care, housing, and education immediately for up to one year, without the need for lengthy asylum procedures," said Ukraine's Ministry of Internal Affairs. All you need to do is visit Romania. More information about the rules for assisting Ukrainian refugees can be found on the official website.
