My mom married my Romanian born step father in 2007. He is part of the family but we're not technically related.

I'm 18 and when they got married I was 9. My mom is not a Romanian citizen only a US citizen.

Could I still get Romanian citizenship by blood?

    Are you currently resident in Romania? And if so, for how long? – Gagravarr Jul 21 '16 at 14:07

    How old are you/were you when they married? Is your mom a Romanian citizen now and through which procedure? I actually don't know about Romania but these details matter in other countries so it's probably useful to specify that. – Gala Jul 21 '16 at 16:14

    Also did your stepfather formally adopt you as a child? – Patricia Shanahan Jul 22 '16 at 6:10

I doubt you can get it by blood, because your mother has only US citizienship.

You can get your Romanian citizienship if, either of these are true:

  • you are adopted by your Romanian father
  • you were born in Romania
  • you give proof that you live in Romania (either by submitting a rental contract or buying contract) and must
  • you promote Romania by special activities like sport, olympics, etc

This website is the National Authority for Citizienship and you can ask them there http://cetatenie.just.ro/index.php/ro/
