Summary/Abstract: Few migrants visit and stay in Romania. However, this situation is prone to change with Romania’s imminent joining the Schengen treaty and the critical labor force shortages. It is not a surprise that Romanian institutions are trying to prepare and train for accommodating workers coming from other regions of the world. This paper describes the current housing and status of immigrants in Romania including the perception and the living conditions of immigrants from Romania. Tentatively, I will show that overall living conditions are good but somewhat worse than the locals. Finally, I associate the living conditions to predictors identified in other studies such as income and type of activity performed in the host country. The study is exploratory and intends to reveal information on how immigrants report on their living status in Romania.
