Procedure for obtaining a residence permit in Poland

Legalisation of stay in Poland is a process that allows foreigners to legally reside in the country. Depending on the purpose and the primary ground of residence there are different types of residence permits in Poland.

A temporary residence permit (Karta pobytu czasowego) is issued for a period of three months to three years. It can be obtained by foreigners who come to Poland for the purpose of work, study, business or family reunification.

A permanent residence permit (Karta pobytu stałego) is granted on the basis of Polish origin or possession of a Pole Card. A long-term residence permit (karta długoterminowego rezydenta UE) can be granted to those who have lived in Poland for at least five years continuously and legally, and who have proven their successful integration into Polish society (this includes knowledge of the Polish language, compliance with Polish laws and respect for the country's traditions), as well as have a permanent place of residence and a stable source of income. 

The process of legalisation of residence is regulated by the Act on Foreigners. The application for a residence permit must be submitted in the relevant voivodeship at the moment of legalisation of stay in Poland. It is important to precisely follow the requirements of the immigration authorities and submit all the necessary documents in a timely manner.
