Temporary Residence requirements in Poland


DrewSA

Hi, I want to get a temporary residence permit for Poland. I am American. The Polish consular website lists that the Consulate may request:

"A certificate showing that the applicant has no outstanding financial obligations in the country of origin"

Does anyone know what sort of document would satisfy this request? Has anyone been asked for this type of document for your temporary residence application?

Dzienkuje,
Drew

Maybe, you can get a statement that you owe no tax in the country will do !!

Hmm, I can get a copy of my old tax returns, but this isn't really the same as showing that I don't owe any money. I don't think the IRS issues any kind of "no outstanding balance" documents.

Can someone confirm that this applies only for non-EU citizens?

Best contact the US consulate in Poland and they will advise you about what document to obtain.

I have temporary residence in Poland, am from an EU country and didn't have to supply proof about any outstanding tax liabilities I had.

in the uk, it says that it's a certificate from the inland revenue (but in the inland revenue website, you will not be able to find any information about this document). it could be the P60.

This is Poland and every office asks for different things. I'm also American and have gone through the residency card thing twice. PM me for details if you want them.

Never heard about anyone having to do this from the EU. Non-EU is fair game - they're entitled to ask for anything they want, really.

Call the IRS. They will send you a copy of the past few years worth of returns. That's what they did for me. What region/city are you registering with?

I found this to be true. If you are going for work, don't assume your employer knows the rules. Find out before hand.

And so it should be.
