Internship in Krakow. Visa/Work Permit Question

Hey, thanks in advance if anyone knows the answer this question, and thanks anyways even if you dont.

Ive recently gotten an internship in Krakow, but I have already bought my ticket to Poland (to spend a month there for the summer) so Im scheduled to leave in a few weeks. Now for the question, is a visa necessary to work at all in Poland for an American citizen if Im there working less than 90 days? If it is, can I apply for my visa once I am in Poland or must it be done before I depart?

Ive contacted the embassy but they have only gave me limited information and spoke of my company acquiring a work permit for me, so I have emailed this company.

Thanks again, and take care you all!

No visa is required to Poland.

i think that would imply that indeed you need a permit

however:

...that foreigners from non-UE countries will be able to work in Poland for three months without a job permit, unless the company hiring them signs a statement confirming willingness to employ them...

you'll find more answers on that web site if needed

Thanks, Ive checked my dates and I will actually be in Poland for 91 days but as long as I leave the country at some point in between May and August I will be ok, correct?

And thanks for the fast reply again! Im excited to spend a summer in Krakow.

Thanks Glowa, I will check out this website now!
