aren't you getting karta pobytu from regional, not local administration ?
First local for 3 months, then you have to get a regional one but I got the local one and 2 weeks before it was "out of date", I went to get the regional one but they needed a month to process it, so it was already out of date (before it was out of date)????. If you understand it, you need your head examined. I counted the girl had 13 stamps in front of her, so I just left.
It is not as bad here as in other countries in the E.U, but this is a Polish forum soooo.
Isn't there talk of getting rid of this whole mirigmaroal?
