In telephone interviews on 20 and 27 October 1995, an official of the Embassy of Romania in Ottawa provided the following information. The Romanian authorities in 1994 stamped the passports of all persons who entered or exited Romania, regardless of their citizenship, with a date of entry or date of exit stamp. This procedure was also followed for Romanian citizens.
This Response was prepared after researching publicly accessible information currently available to the DIRB within time constraints. This Response is not, and does not purport to be, conclusive as to the merit of any particular claim to refugee status or asylum.
