I have an Indian passport. I used to have a Romanian residence permit, which has expired. Now, I have an EEA family permit for five years issued by the UK. I am living with my Romanian wife and son in London, and we all want to go visit Romania, but first my wife and son will be leaving. After they have left, I want to travel alone for only 8 days from Heathrow Airport. Do I need to first apply for a Romanian visa for entry, or I can go with my valid passport and EEA residence permit?
As stated in Timatic, the database used by airlines:
Visa required, except for passengers with a family member residence card issued by Switzerland or another EEA Member State. The card must be issued to family members of a national of Switzerland or an EEA Member State. They are visa exempt for a maximum stay of 90 days and must travel with or travel to join the national of Switzerland or EEA Member State.
So no, you do not need a visa for Romania. However, you need to bring proof (phone number, other documentation) that your Family is in Romania and that you will join them.
