Although far from home, expats will soon find that keeping in touch in Romania and staying connected with loved ones abroad is relatively hassle free.

Expats living in Romania can expect access to all the amenities of modern communication. Signing up for cellular subscriptions is easy, and a range of service providers offer internet packages. Those who prefer more traditional forms of communication will find that the Romanian postal service, although slow-moving, is highly dependable. 

Mobile phones in Romania

The largest mobile providers in the country are Telekom Romania, Orange, Vodafone and Digi. In terms of internet access, 4G has comprehensive coverage, but 5G is also becoming available in some areas as it is gradually rolled out.

Stores are widely distributed, and there are plenty of deals on offer, with both prepaid and contract options. Customers may be asked to provide documentation proving their identity, place of residence and financial status.

Internet in Romania

The four major mobile providers in Romania (Telekom Romania, Orange, Vodafone and Digi) also dominate the internet market.

The industry is highly competitive; accessing the internet and connecting to a broadband service provider in Romania is cheap and easy. Expats can enjoy some of the highest connection speeds in the world, and subscribers are sure to find a connection package that suits their budget and needs.

Postal services in Romania

The Romanian postal service (Poșta Română) is not especially reliable and doesn't have a good reputation, particularly when it comes to international deliveries. Expats have reported letters and packages taking months to arrive at their intended destination, and in some cases not arriving at all. Sending and receiving postage within Romania is slightly better, though still slow. Tracking numbers are highly recommended.
