sobieski 107 | 2,128 11 Oct 2008 / #1A Canadian friend of mine here in Warsaw is soon to be divorced from his Polish wife. He is living and working here (with the necessary papers) based on his marriage to a Polish citizen.Of course now that all comes under threat. He was going to apply for something named "European Residence Card" ?? Which would allow non-EU citizens the same right to work and live here as EU citizens.Does anybody on this forum have this document?Now he has conflicting advice how to obtain it. One official in the Foreigner's Office at Długa 5 told him it is enough to live 5 years officially in Poland to get it... But the girl processing his file refused to do so, and told him he had to work five years here.His lawyer found nothing in the legislation about the 5-year working aspect.Would be great to hear experiences from other people.
