Just take it out the ATM as this works out cheaper, dependent on which bank you use in your home country you will normally get a few points below the central bank exchange rate

Law / Setting up a sole trader business and becoming a resident in Poland - Procedure? [32]

I have a business its located offshore in Delaware I don't work in Poland but live there only, i get all the residency stuff etc. It depends on where you want to trade in or out of the country?

However if setting up a company in Poland expect this to take around 6 weeks, to get everything like VAT and bank accounts sorted, my advice would be to seek the services of a good lawyer who will help you through the process, Just remember one thing though, DO NOT play with the Financial Government in Poland as they can take control of your business

Real Estate / Residential real estate values go down in Poland [455]

All i know is that there are a load of properties for sale outside of major cities, these are mainly houses, people built and then realized the hassle of getting to work each day, As an example take Warszawa and Ulica Puławska it's a nightmare between 5 and 7pm to get anywhere.! However it does not help when drivers ignore what traffic lights are for either :)

Law / Bringing a Car to Poland from outside of EU? [6]


As long as you only want to drive it while you are here then not a problem, if you plan on registering it in Poland it needs to be under 10 years old and you will have to pay import tax on it also.

I Get cars from the States I buy have a family member drive it around for 6 months and ship to the UK where i register it and then pay no import tax because i have owned it and driven it outside of the country for the allowed amount of time

Real Estate / Banks in Poland selling fewer mortgages in 2011, down 49% [285]

The figure given by the banks in 70 percent which is much more believable ( these are nbp figures). 40 percent was 10 years ago.

I live 35 KM outside of Warszawa i have to drive 10 km in any direction through at least 5 villiages to get to an ATM machine, if i count up the population there which are mainly old people there would be around 5000 in surrounding villages without access to a bank this is one area so take the rest of Poland and the figure is around 40-50%

I believe civil servants were made to have a bank account only a couple of years ago

Life / Polish mentality towards Pakistan [108]

I am a Paki livin in waw from 3 years and in these 3 years Im not able to figure out what do Poles think of Pakistan.

Therefore please guys give your response to this message as it will enlighten many Paki like me, about what Poles think about us.

looking forward for any response.

There ius a difference between the UK and Poland when talking about Immigrants, when the british brought the Pakistanis into the Uk it was to work, however over the years to follow they abused the system and brought in every member of their family including distant cousins, but hey everyone wants to come to the UK since everything is free? Poland is a Little different, you need to at least work to be able to obtain things like medical and benefits or be a polish national.

People should accept that those who come here are not here to take advantage like they have in other countries since there is NOT a lot to be able to take advantage of.!
