Cultural tickets for Romanian employees

Employees in the Eastern European nation can use the vouchers to go to the movies, buy books, or for other cultural activities.

A new bill in Romania allows employers in the country to distribute “cultural ticket” to their workers.

Employees will then use these tickets to engage in cultural activities – these can include attending films, concerts, museum, festivals, or even theme parks. Tickets can also be used to acquire books, musical albums, and movies.

According to, the tickets can be granted monthly, in which case they would have a value of up to RON 150 (SG$50). Alternatively, if given occasionally, the vouchers can have a maximum value of RON 300 (SG$100).

These vouchers are not the first of their kind in the country. The Romanian government also issues tax-free vacation vouchers to employers, who can then grant them to employees.

Meal vouchers are also reported to be one of the most popular types of benefits offered by employers in Romania.
