I'm a Brazilian citizen currently living in Czech Republic, in Pilsen.

If I take a bus to visit Romania for 90 days and enter the country by road will I have to go through an immigration office to cross the border?


You should go through at least two, potentially colocated checks (an exit check in Hungary and an entry check in Romania). You might undergo additional checks if you transit through Serbia or Ukraine or if you encounter some random Czech, Slovak, or Austrian check.

  • Wrong, Hungarian-Romanian checkpoints are integrated due to the EU: same goes for Romanian-Bulgarian, Bulgarian-Greek and certain Slovene-Croatian and Hungarian-Croatian checkpoints. So it's just one check – Crazydre Dec 4 '17 at 13:33

  • @Tor-EinarJarnbjo No idea: it was only in 2014, when I started living alone, that I started travelling around crazy. Have bussed in Eastern Europe a fair deal now and know this to be a fact. Besides, as for the Hungarian-Romanian border, you can see it for yourself here youtube.com/watch?v=IYyZu2ZY-t8 and here youtube.com/watch?v=K1yfICZGlBw – Crazydre Dec 4 '17 at 13:42
  • @Tor-EinarJarnbjo NOTE: I'm strictly referring to roads, not railways, where it's still done separately – Crazydre Dec 4 '17 at 13:43

    @Coke I have slightly edited my answer… – Relaxed Dec 4 '17 at 13:52

Yes. Romania is not yet a Schengen member, so the border with Hungary is indeed supervised.
