Romanian Passport Renewal Question

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Greetings all.

We need some help. My wife (Romanian) and I got married last April, we didnt know we would need to register the marriage in Romania in order to get her passport renewed. We have tried to contract the Romanian Embassy in Washington DC by calling and emails.
Wife has her greencard, and NC Drivers license. and she has a US job. We wanted to travel to RO next spring.

Here is what I would like to know:

Has anyone delt with this issue. My wife's passport expires in 12/25/2016 - can she renew this in the US, and would she need to change her name to our married name, can she just renew the passport?

What are the forms needed to complete this, I understand we will have to go to Romanian Embassy in DC and appear.

Do we have to register marriage first? Can she just renew her currant valid passport and romanian ID in her maiden name?

Does anyone know the exact step by step instructions to complete this task with the least amount of trouble???

Any help or advise please!!

Inainte sa plecati in Romania mergeti la consulat si luati " foaie de calatorie " eu asa am facut. Dar ar fi bine cu cel putin 2 luni inainte sa imputerniciti pe cineva din Romania sa va inregistreze casatoria la tribunalul din orasul in care a locuit sotia. Certificatul de casatorie v-a trebui apostilat , trimis in romania acolo tradus si apoi depus la tribunal.
