Vulnerable persons are those persons who were granted a form of protection in Romania and have low potential for self-support.

They are considered vulnerable:

a)    unaccompanied minors;

b)    persons with disabilities;

c)    persons who have reached retirement age and do not receive a pension;

d)    pregnant women;

e)    single parents with minor children;

f)     victims of trafficking;

g)    victims of torture, rape or other serious forms of psychological, physical or sexual violence.

The General Inspectorate for Immigration can accommodate in its centers vulnerable people that do not require specialized assistance. For good reasons IGI may agree to extend the integration program for these persons beyond the one year limit. Vulnerable people can be accommodated free of charge in centers managed by IGI.
