More than half of immigrants are family members of Romanian citizens, and nearly 10 percent of them have come here to reunite the family.
A third of immigrants from Romania is represented by the category those that are coming to study in Romanian schools, facing with the lack of information in a foreign language.
Was identified the most common problems of immigrants, one of them being the weak communication with the institutions responsible for the integration of immigrants, the fact that some information and materials of interest to them are inaccessible them, because they are not translated into a international language.
