So this must be misunderstanding then, you will easily sort this out. Are you planning on going back to the UK? Have you had enough of Poland?

whats the problem, you are Brit, lived in foreign EU country
probably its about some tax ( what kind, what for? ), maybie they are worry about your investments outside of UK which should be taxed if you are citizen of UK who are getting extra cash from country outside of UK who intend to live in UK?

I can send you a postcard from your (or shall I say previously known as yours) country. (lol)
A London by night picture maybe?

I find this new policy very sound and reasonable. It is harsh - I agree, but necessary. Can you imagine that there are certain areas in London, where people don't understand Polish? It's all because these bloody foreigners. Therefore a Polish Id required to enter UK is definitely a step in good direction.

Greetings from OUR island. :-D

Can you imagine that there are certain areas in Warsaw, where people don't understand English? It's all because of these bloody foreigners. Therefore a British passport to enter Poland is definitely a step in the right direction.

Greetings from OUR Poland ;-)

Merry Christmas!

Looks like we have something in common, bureaucrats, not the sharpest bunch. What would we do without them? LOL

it is indeed;

a few months work under my belt before I go back to Poland ;)

that is if they let you live there.
Think twice, if you take a plane tomorrow you'll make it for Wigilia and Christmas (Christmas market & mulled wine in Krakow's Rynek are so tempting!).
