Immigration to Romania

Romania, though not a popular destination for immigrants, such as Spain, France, UK or USA, has experienced in the last years a small wave of immigrants, mostly from China, India, Africa, but also from the former USSR countries, like Moldova, Ukraine and Chechnya. Today there are almost 200,000 foreigners in Romania.

In 2006, the top three countries demanding Romanian citizenship were:

* Moldova - 750,000Fact|date=July 2008
* China - 20,000
* Ukraine-10,000
