The law expressly indicates that the declaration should include the period of travel, the country of transit and destination, as well as the purpose of the trip.
  • For each notarial act, the applicant must have a separate appointment. If the person requests two notarial documents, he must have two appointments.
  • The notarial deed can NOT be drawn up by post - the presence of the applicant is mandatory.
  • The notarial deed is drawn up in Romanian and issued on the day of the appointment.

  • A parent's consent is sufficient for minors to travel abroad accompanied by third parties. The law expressly indicates that the declaration should include the period of travel, the country of transit and destination, as well as the purpose of the trip.
