A1 Form For Working in Romania – How To Obtain It

What is the A1 Form and why do I need it if I am planning to work in Romania?

One of the many documents that must be submitted by companies willing to hire foreign citizens, as well as by the future employees, is the little known A1 form, issued by the National House for Public Pensions (CNPP).

The document proves that the person filing it and his family members are covered by the welfare system of their country of origin for a 2-year maximum interval, if this refers to an EU member state.

It is also necessary for the Romanian citizens who accept a job in another EU country.

According to CNPP, the A1 form exclusively proves that the applicant is listed with the welfare system of the country of origin, but its absence will not prevent him from conducting professional activities on the territory of another EU member state.

In the absence of the form, the rule that takes precedence is that the person will comply with the social security regulations of the country where the job is located.

The A1 form can be obtained for an initial 24-month interval, based on a request submitted with CNPP by the employer, for one or more employees, 30 or more days before the date when they will start their activity.

The file must include several documents issued by various institutions, as follows. If all these documents are provided, CNPP must issue the A1 form within 25 workdays from the date when the application has been submitted.

Documents to be submitted by Romanian employers:

1. company incorporation certificate;

2. fiscal certificate;

3. a document issued by the Territorial Labor Office (ITM), or the employer’s own statement on the total number of employees;

4. recent financial balancesheets issued by the applicant;

5. a financial report issued by the applicant, proving its turnover in Romania and in the other member state over the last fiscal year, or during its entire activity;

6. commercial contracts implemented on Romanian territory before the interval for which the A1 form will be issued;

7. commercial contracts implemented on Romanian territory during the interval for which the A1 form will be issued;

8. contract or precontract between the Romanian-based employer and the foreign employer, along with its certified translation;

9. the monthly statement D112 (annex 1.1 & annex 1.2);

10. the Romanian identity document of the applicant;

11. the labor record of the applicant;

12. a document certifying that the applicant has paid his income tax for the last 12 months

13. a statement issued by the employer, listing the time intervals when the employees included in the A1 form application were issued previous A1 forms, or E101 and E102 forms.

Documents to be submitted by freelancers:

1. a certificate that proves the person was included in the Registry of Commerce and was licensed to conduct freelance activity;

2. fiscal certificate;

3. current financial balancesheets for the incomes made in Romania and in the state where the applicant will operate under the A1 form;

4. past commercial contracts implemented on Romanian territory;

5. contract or precontract signed by the freelance worker proving his activity in the other state, along with a certified translation;

6. a proof that the applicant is covered by the public system of insurances against labor accidents and professional diseases;

7. a proof that the applicant is covered by the public system of health insurances;

8. a proof that the applicant is covered by the public system of unemployment benefits;

9. the Romanian identity document of the applicant;
