If you received a scholarship from the Romanian state, or are exempt from paying school fees, then you are also exempt from paying the consular fee (EUR120) and the cost of the residence permit; you are also exempt from providing financial support documents.

If you pay your school fees in RoN, you are exempt from paying the cost of your residence permit, but you will still have to pay the consular fee (EUR120) and provide proof of financial support.

The letter of acceptance is the document you received from the Ministry of Education and presented to the Romanian consular office for the long-stay visa. It is typically written in English and is called “Letter of acceptance”.

The letter of acceptance issued to you by your educational institution is in a unique format because it is required by the Ministry of Education.
