Border traffic on August 14th, 2022

On August 14th, 2022, through the border crossing points at the level of the entire country, approximately 376.940 persons, Romanian and foreign citizens, with over 86.200 means of transport, went through the control formalities (both on the way in and on the way out of the country).

On the exit from Romania, there were 200,990 people, of which 90,500 were throught the border with Hungary.

Yesterday, August 14th, 2022, the most crowded border points, both in the direction of entry and exit, were Nădlac II, with over 95,000 people, Giurgiu, with over 30,000 people and Vama Veche, with over 22,000 people. Given that in this days many Romanian citizens travelled outside the country's borders, an increase in traffic at the border crossing points is also expected in the coming period, on the way to enter the country, especially at the border with Hungary and Bulgaria. We recommend that Romanian and foreign citizens transiting the national border during this period use all border points open under the international regime and inform themselves about the travel conditions in the countries of destination and in those transited. 

Furthermore, the border control at the entrance to Romania through the border crossing points is carried out efficiently, in accordance with the provisions of the national and community legislation, the Border Police working at the maximum capacity allowed by the infrastructure of the crossing points.

Information on the situation of border points open to international traffic can be found on the online traffic application which can be accessed at
