Romania has been seeking to be part of the borderless area since June 2011, however, such a thing has not been completed yet.
Some European Union Member States such as France and the Netherlands have opposed Romania’s accession to the Schengen Zone, due to “the rule of law concerns“.
Last May 2020, the European Union Home Affairs Commissioner Ylva Johansson said that she wants Romania, Bulgaria and Croatia to join the Schengen Area, stressing that the EU needs to strengthen and update Schengen.
Johansson’s comments came amid the Coronavirus outbreak, which pushed many countries to impose entry bans and travel restrictions to stop the virus’s further spread.
We now need to get back to the future, back to normality. And we need to do so as soon as the health situation allows it — the European Union Home Affairs Commissioner
During the European Union summit held in 2019, in Sibiu, the Dutch Prime Minister said that once Romania “complies with the rule of law and democracy” would be ready for admission to the Schengen Zone.
