Immigration in Romania consists mainly of students and workers, about 60,000 people. Most workers are in fact posted workers, that is to say that the employment contract does not depend on the Romanian legislation. Many are lured by promises of compensation fabulous to work in Europe, and pay for access to the job. Then the investment company that employs them disappears, and they remain unemployed and undocumented.
There is also a thousand refugees and asylum seekers. About 10% of asylum applications are successful. The decision at first instance takes 4 to 5 months, and there can appeal. Asylum seekers have the opportunity to work one year after the procedure. They are housed in five nursing homes located near the borders.
There are also two detention centers in Bucharest and Arad, near the Serbian and Hungarian borders for foreigners awaiting deportation, and six transit centers until the administrative status of the foreigner to be clarified.
It seems that respect for human rights has improved, but the active associations on the subject are few and dependent on subsidies from the European Union. They have no access to detention centers.
