Law / Polish Citizenship Confirmation - Religious Greek Marriage Certificate Problem [3]

only have a religious marriage certificate

I never heard of anyone having problems with a foreign, religious marriage certificate, exclusively on the basis that it is a religious marriage certificate.

However, due to being a foreign certificate, you might want to have it attested by the Greek foreign ministry as well as the Polish embassy in Athens - if possible. That should in theory give you a "solid" document.

Law / Poland's residency card fingerprints [2]

@Kaneda996 the offices for foreigners are heavily loaded, and from time to time they make procedural changes to accommodate their workloads. I wouldn't think much of it.

News / Duda invited to march in Poland's Independence Day parade [182]

no trouble

Almost no trouble. 1 person was arrested for insulting the police. Minor property damage in comparison to 2014.

no police

That is not correct. We counted more than 100 police vans driving north on Puławska on Wednesday morning in preparation for the march. There was heavy Police presence throughout but they kept to the background as much as possible.

Work / How to find work in Warsaw "if u don't speak Polish" ! [176]

@Leev,

Yes. Outsourcing companies in Warsaw frequently look for people with logistics experience even if they don't speak Polish.
Speaking English + other European languages (German, French, Spanish, Italian & Russian are usually the most wanted) is what they usually look for. Having a degree or formal qualification is also important.

Mixed people are usually gorgeous.

Totally true.

This is the Polish language thread. Let's back on topic please.

media are more interested in shocking, surprising or titillating than informing

Absolutely true... Add to that polarizing and manipulating to achieve the goals of their sponsors.

Language / Too many English words in the Polish language! [709]

filizanka = Turkish?

Correct, also bakłażan. Both words also somewhat similar to the Arabic words (Finżan and Badhenżan). In the case of filiżanka, the Turks took the word from the Arabs, but in the case of bakłażan, the jury is out.

dinner jacket

Haha, good one, and FYI, in some Arabic speaking communities the word "smoking" means the same thing.

In Arabic, a lift is asensor.

There is a proper Arabic word (mas'ad) , but not many people use it.

Now guess what is the origin of the following words:
bakłażan
filiżanka

News / UAE's Emaar to Invest in Poland [26]

Differently of the condescending and weak Leftists before

This statement is meaningless because there was not a single terror attack on Polish soil during the last 5 years.

PiS is also hostile against Terrorists and Jihadists

That is good. We need leaders who are hostile against terrorists and jihadists.

News / Poland's election winning party: PIS proclamations [229]

"A report, published on the official website of the Law and Justice (PiS) party, is highly critical of the grouping's campaign proposal to introduce a financial transaction tax (FTT)"

thenews.pl/1/12/Artykul/228154,PiS-expert-scraps-partys-policy-proposal

Some may say that they are already looking for excuses for failing to deliver what they promised.

"The original page has been removed from PiS's website"

And this shows lack of communication internally between them. That can't be healthy.

News / UAE's Emaar to Invest in Poland [26]

A key feature of the entire proposed development is that it is designed from the start to be green building certified. If built, it would be the largest green building project in the world until something bigger comes up.

Of course a bunch of idiots whining about it doesn't change a thing. Also, worth highlighting, the new leadership in Poland is very keen on maintaining good relations with wealthy Persian gulf countries since both share a common enemy to the east from here.

Life / Electrical wiring in Poland - color codes [23]

In Poland they do tend to use neutral as an earth, I too would like to know if it was an old wiring past code, I cannot beleive that they would still allow this today.

I noticed the same thing and ask the same question.

News / IBM fears racist attacks on employees on Poland's independence day [63]

I heard this from an Indian friend that works there before it went on the news. And not only them. A MAJOR outsourcing company in Warsaw (that employs thousands) has issued similar advice to their employees - one of which also happens to be a friend.

News / Don't read "Gazeta Wyborcza" Polish newspaper -- wPolityce.pl [83]

Developent Council

I think it is a hole in taxpayers' pockets meant to benefit some people with a government salary and pension, with no other purpose and no vision. Till date we've seen nothing from this council except their hefty salaries weighing down on taxpayers. When they do or say ONE useful thing then you can talk about them. Until that happens you need to learn to actually answer what people tell you instead of trying to squiggle your way around with irrelevant stories as usual. FYI, from 2010-2015, the "value" of the Poland brand went up 300%. During the last 10 days it went down ~7%. Not a good start. Also, S&P is about to downgrade Poland's credit rating, due to the imbalanced and illogical fiscal vision of your friends.

nearly all of Poland's recognisable brands (Wedel, Wyborowa, Żywiec, Okocim

Do you have any idea how the rest of the world perceives Poland as a brand?
Even Ursus tractor was more well known globally in 1989 than ANY of the brands you listed (and continues to be).

Law / Poland's Temporary residence card after marriage; I entered Europe without visa, the officials are stalking me [48]

booklets

I got the "instructions for foreigners" booklet somewhere, but it is very old. Let me have a look, if I find something I will write here.

They didn't make any stamp on my passport i asked from there but she said untill decision can't make stamp.
When i submitted my application in foreign office they sended one letter after some days i am legal in poland till make final decision.

Something is illogical about that. If no stamp then they must have handed you a letter on the spot stating that you have applied, unless your application was incomplete from the start.

application in germany on behalf of baby?

Your baby is a Polish citizen since the mother is Polish.

go back in poland with my wife and son and tell them my baby born he have german birth cirtificate

You need to register your baby in Poland and obtain a Polish birth certificate and a PESEL number as soon as possible.

leave all in poland

go back in poland

I am not telling you what to do. You are confused and your confusion is apparent in your communication style.

with out documents I crossed the border

That has the potential to complicate future paperwork in both countries.

But i think

Last and final advice from me: please stop "thinking" and consult an organization that assists foreigners. At this point in time you may NEED their services.

Law / Poland's Temporary residence card after marriage; I entered Europe without visa, the officials are stalking me [48]

Kash,

Since you have had an interview and a house visit, it means your application has been "entered into the system". This means that when you applied they either stamped your passport or gave you a letter confirming submission of your application. Either stamp or letter legalizes your stay in Poland until a decision is issued. So on the one hand, you were not obligated to leave Poland. On the other hand, you are not obligated to stay in Poland until a decision is made.

There is no specific mechanism to cancel an application as far as I know. All you can do is wait for a decision, or maybe send them a notarized letter, written in Polish, via registered post, saying that the reason for filing your application (your intention to live in Poland with your family) is no longer applicable since you and your family have decided to live in another country. If they take your letter into consideration, I assume that all that will happen is that your application will be left with no further action taken. They won't refund the fees and they won't return submitted documents.
