Starting with 06th of January, 2018 the gross average salary per economy has been increased from RON 3131 to RON 4162.
Therefore, all references related to the gross average salary in 2018 must consider the amount of RON 4162.
According to the Immigration legal requirements, non–EU foreigners having individual employment contract should obtain a gross salary not lower than the average gross salary per economy (RON 4162).
