If you are a non-EU / EES citizen and want to travel to Romania for a short timespan, you must first obtain an entry visa, in case you are coming from states which are required an entry visa for their residents.
Short-stay visas grant you the right to request entry into Romania, for other reasons than immigration, for an uninterrupeted stay or for more stays, for which the duration shall not exceed 90 days, within a maximum timespan of 6 months from the date of the first entry. This type of visa can be issued for one or several entries.
It is also your travel documentation (passport) that you need to ensure compliance, with the following criteria: that it is valid for a period of at least 3 months, from the date you are expected to leave Romania (for emergencies, this provision can be disregarded) and has been issued in the past 10 years.

From those countries that are registered as needing visa to enter into Romania, for their nationals, there are some cases in which an invitation approved by the General Inspectorate for Immigration is required. Thi invitation can be done by a physical or legal person, by a romanian citizen or an alien who has residence in Romania (please see the list of states what require their nationals to obtain an invitation in order to be granted an entry visa into Romania).
The short-stay visa gives you the right to visit Romania for a limited period of time and cannot be extended. If you wish to extend you stay for a longer period of time, you must get a long-stay visa and subsequently, a residence permit for Romania.
The short-term visa can be obtained from the diplomatic bodies and the consular offices in Romania (please consult the list detailing these bodies and offices).
The right to residence granted by a short-term visa cannot be extended. Nevertheless, should it be the case that, for objective reasons, you cannot leave Romania within the term foreseen by your visa, you can obtain a resolution of return, from the territorial factions within the General Inspectorate for Immigration, a document that allows you to stay in Romania for a period up to days.
The tax for the visa is 60 Euro and is paid with the state authorities where the request is filed.
