Working for my home country from RO?

Jump to last reply

I am an Australian citizen currently planning a trip to Europe in the second half of this year. As a part of this I'll be travelling around Europe with a Romanian citizen. I'll hopefully be there for up to 110 days, though that is not finalised yet. We're travelling to the UK (~10 days) and Schengen (~20 days) and then on to RO (~80 days). As I understand it, each of these is within their stay limits (RO doesn't count towards Schengen) and I won't need a visa for any of them.

This will consist of an initial holiday of 2-3 weeks around UK/Schengen, then heading to Romania where I'll be accomodated privately (travelling back into Schengen and maybe Turkey some weekends).

At this stage it's looking like my finances will be fine, but my issue is that I will only have 11 or 12 days leave at the time (hopefully I can extend this out to 3 weeks by working extra). After this time I will have to return to work to keep my job.

The plan we've formulated is that I will continue working for my AU company from RO for 80 days or so, as the nature of my work makes this totally possible. I haven't organised this with my boss yet because I want to have everything figured out first, but there's a good chance this will be fine.

My concern is whether I am allowed to undertake this work within RO without any kind of visa. As far as I can tell, the rules about working are for people looking for work and taking jobs from citizens, so they should not be relevant? Can you see any problems with this arrangement?
