A digital information system is available for interested parties – primarily citizens with Romanian nationality – with which you can access qualitative consular information in an efficient and transparent manner. Through direct communication with the Romanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and by extension with the Consular Department of the Romanian Embassy in The Hague, you can make use of all consular services and also obtain information about all required documents and procedures. Incidentally, this is also to the advantage of stakeholders because it eliminates unnecessary bureaucracy and cumbersome procedures.
In this context, we refer interested parties to the website https://www.econsulat.ro/.
