CCC 22 Mar 2009 / #1My wife (a Polish citizen) and I are possibly looking to move to Poland in the next 5 or 10 yrs (I'm American) and I'd be wanting to get residency then later citizenship. Unfortunately I made some major mistakes in college and ended up with a felony (battery) conviction and two misdemeanor DUI's five years ago... have been sober since, gotten my master's degree, and have worked in state government for last 3 yrs. Any idea on if I could ever obtain residency? Polish law seems to indicate I'd be fine (Article 57 of Act of June 13th 2003 on foreigners), but the Ministry of Foreign Affairs website says if you were "sentenced for common crimes" outside of Poland you couldn't legally enter the country. Anyone have experience in this area?
