Documents for expats in Poland: the first steps

Documents for expats in Poland

Documents for expats in Poland? How to get?

If you’re thinking about moving to Warsaw, Gdansk, Wroclaw or any other multicultural Polish city, you will probably need some useful information about Documents for expats in Poland the local government requires for a legal stay. The first and most important step for a foreigner is to determine the purpose of your visit.

Work in Poland – simple way

For example, if you’re not interested in studies and want to use your professional skills, you should get a Polish working wisa. A prerequisite for obtaining this type of visa is an invitation from the Polish employer, which determines the period of your stay in the country:

  • 6 months,
  • 1 year and more,
  • depending on your skills and country.

However, if you’re a EU-resident, you don’t need any documents for expats in Poland or permits – feel free to explore the Republic of Poland!

Study in Poland

Want to get a EU-diploma? It’s no secret that Polish universities are ready to provide all foreigners with quality educational services for very attractive fees. You can even choose studies in English in Warsaw or any other big city.

Besides that, low prices for accommodation and food (by Europeans standarts, of course) create a perfect environment for young people who are allowed to combine study with work in Poland (since 2015 for all full-time university students!). All you need to get a job is a student ID (Legitimacja) and a Polish student wisa!

How to stay in Poland?

Any foreign employee can ask for a residence permit (karta stałego pobytu) after 5 years of continuous residence. However, each year is counted as 6 months for students! Thus, moving to Poland is not as complicated as you could think. Contact your regional visa center or embassy for more information!
