I'm wondering if there is a lot of discrimination against LGBT people in Romania? I'm gay, but more obviously, I'm also a trans male. I'm planning on taking an extended visit to Romania within the next couple of years, but I don't actually know if I'll be able to get my ID's in order before that time/ be able to pass successfully/ etc etc. I'd absolutely love to visit - I spend an hour or two each day studying the language because I love it so much, and some people very dear to my heart are from there - but if my physical safety is going to be in danger I'd have to rethink the whole thing. Thank you for any help you can offer :)
Expat Health Insurance
If you’re thinking about taking out private health insurance, our trusted partner Cigna Global is very aware of all the difficulties that expats can face when it comes to healthcare in a new location, so they have created a range of international health insurance plans specifically designed for expats, which you can tailor exactly to the needs and ensure access to quality care for you and your family.
Sirelo has a network of more than 500 international removal companies that can move your furniture and possessions to your new home. By filling in a form, you’ll get up to 5 quotes from recommended movers. This service is free of charge and will help you select an international moving company that suits your needs and budget.
But as with most countries, I think your experience would vary greatly depending on where in Romania you went. Larger cities are likely to be home to a more cosmopolitan and diverse population, and therefore more accepting of different types of people – so Bucharest might be a good option for you in that respect.
Hope this answers your question somewhat! Let me know if you have any more questions.
