Life / What does an american citizen need to do to live in Poland with his Polish citizen wife? [35]

remember if you have to be married 3 years or 5 years before you can apply for permanent status

[
That law takes in effect after you have resided in poland for 2 years atleast and after you have obtained your permanent residence.
quote=Bluesview]As I understand things today I will first Karta Pobytu (Residency Permit) which will last me until I can apply for a 'Permit to Settle'/'Permanent Residence' - don't know the proper Polish term for this. And this will last me until I apply for Polish citizenship[/quote]

[I was also married to my wife for 17 years when I first applied had to get 2 yrs residence permit for two times and then i got my permanent in 2010 and immediately applied for my citizenship and got it in 7 month. Its then the real work begun of getting polish ID and then applying for passport took me almost 8 months...then again your all p[assport stamps will be checked that you did stay in Poland for 2 years with not leaving the EU zone over 180 days I think and maximum of 9 months I think...be carefull they check every stamp on your passport...the only main reason for refusal to americans.

quote=Jimmu]You will need lots of new passport style photos, passports, IDs, copies of everything including stamps in the passports (4 to be safe).Copy everything many times, never let the originals stray to far and get everything in English translated by a certified translator. (Tłumacz Przysięgły)Get everything done in the US that you can (apostiles, etc) but probably best to get translatins done in Poland.[/quote]

[That is kind of rough and expensive in Nj atleast...first you have to get it notarised (any bank will do it free if u have an acct there) then get it verified at the county offie for the notary and then to the state capital forapostle..if you do it by yourself and not mail costs like 150$ a document express or by mail 50$ but takes almost 3 weeks.quote=Jimmu]You need to register the translated marriage certificate apostile at the Urząd Stanu Cywilnego in the area where you will live.As soon as you get settled go to the Urząd Województwo and apply for residence (Karta Pobytu). You will need proof of income and I think proof of health coverage but my wife says no about the health coverage.[/quote]

Exactly this idiot harry was making a point that one dont need to get the polish version of marriage and birth certificate!

I will eventually apply for citizenship in the future. Right now I'm just concerned with what I need to do to live in Poland with my wife

[
Buddyyou are on disability and looking to work?ouch! 6600pln and xtra income 10k a month approx(i think)ummm best I think u can do is teach english or start business then again you will have to report the income in US and there goes disability:(Just be carefull whatever you do as a Pal of mine had trouble with citibank reporting his offshore income with IRS as supposedly banks will issue you W8 every year of the interest income you earn in Poland thus informing the IRS..

quote=Jimmu]Copy everything many times, never let the originals stray to far [/quote]
They take your orignal birth and marriage certificate and issue you one from poland:) so no worries back home we can get another copy for 5 bucks so dont make a fuss about it when they keep that!same goes with driving license they keep it and issue u a polish one again no worries 5 bucks and u can get new one back:)an dont let this idiot english teacher brit guide you as I have been through the process myself....and for future refernce you have to enter Poland by showing your polish passport and american&Polish one exiting.

Life / What does an american citizen need to do to live in Poland with his Polish citizen wife? [35]

Which is why one of your legion of different usernames was here in 2011 asking how to extend the 90-day visa.

[Do I really need to think what an english teaching Brit thinks if I even need a 90 day visa...seriously...Ill stick to the topic.quote=Harry]Please stop lying. A full list of documents can be found here: udsc.gov.pl/WORK,1803.html. There is no mention of birth certificate or marriage certificate, let alone a Polish birth certificate.[/quote]

Try with those documents and see for yourself as I have first hand exp.

Life / What does an american citizen need to do to live in Poland with his Polish citizen wife? [35]

[Maybe cuz u are a EU resident and read up!quote=Harry]Really, I have no idea why you try to come here and tell us this rubbish. We live here and some of us have lived here for a long time. You have visited Poland a couple of times for a couple of months: you have never had residency of any type whatsoever (as is shown by the fact that you have been unable to stay here for longer than three months).[/quote]

To begin with you dont have a clue what papers I have...like you went to AMCHAM without being a member and I prooved you my name is in the member list,FYI I am also a Polish citizen since dec 2010,secondly Polish BC and Marriage certificate is required for an non EU citizen.

And the comment about if I go to different offices I might get different answers to regarding requirements

[Just ask the concerbed office what documents they need dont go around asking too many peeps as u will get all diff answers.quote=Bluesview]My wife has certified copies of the marriage license (U.S.) [/quote]

[Bro u dont need certified copies just a certificate to be registered at marriage office...befor you have to get it translated by an centrified translator though!quote=delphiandomine]Do you think this will support you in years to come?[/quote]

[ss from disablity can be 75% of the income earned in US,and ss itself can be over 1000$ a month depending on his age.quote=scottie1113]First work out where you will live and then consider how you will put food on the table[/quote]

[a bank statement for 10ka year is just fine and if he has a place to live in.quote=Harry]He will almost certainly need his birth certificate for the Karta Pobytu application but it won't need to registered with or even shown to the Gmina. [/quote]

Are you really stupid or just act like one.......one has to have polish birth certificate and marriage certificate to even apply for residency.

.......one has to have polish birth certificate and marriage certificate to even apply for residency.

Sorry it is mandatory if u apply on the basis of marriage not for work then again he wants to stay and i think wants to be a citizen

Life / What does an american citizen need to do to live in Poland with his Polish citizen wife? [35]

My friend go to Poland,get your birth certificate translated and marriage certificate translated(By a certified translator),then register both at your respective municipal office and obtain a polish version then go to immigration office and apply for a residence permit..that you can stay there over 90 days...you will have to fill form and polish style pics attached with it, & a bank statement and a proof of place to live.AND WAIT:)Once you get 1 or 2 yr permit hunt for a living:)ie.if you have money buy commercial places to rent(u will need permission to buy commercial places from interior ministry but is easy and takes around cpl of months if u on top of it...and or if you dont have money look for english teaching job as most brits and american backpackers do:).If you need more asst email me POLCIAQQ@aol.com.

What should I expect to pay? Lastly, should I consider using an attorney to handle this move or would that be a waste of money?

Sorry forgot to add...u dont need attorney to fill out forms just common sense and a smiley face with the officials and they will guide you through...there are law firms who will charge yopu arm and length for filling forms...and do that in Poland not in states the Polish embassy will just jerk u around!

News / Poland's Economy Is Booming! The EU's Success Story? [711]

Crap journalism. There were motorways in Poland then - Konin-Wresznia was open, as was the A4 from Olszyna to Wroclaw

I think for him motorways are a 2 way paved road..whereas for Americans its a 4/5 lane,oneway highway..and in UK also there are 2way highways so maybe he is confused there:)

Real Estate / Poland's apartment prices continue to fall [1844]

How is that done in Poland, actually?? I have often thought it may be a good idea and was looking at agricultural land in the UK about 5 years ago when it was affordable. I thought no foreigners were allowed to buy ag land/farms until 2016.

InWroclaw
You can fill a form from i think was internal ministry and pay i think 4/600pln and write a letter (in Polish) explaining your ties to poland like kids/wifes passports and if anyother properties purchased and wait.....lol usually 3/4 months un til you know anyone then in a month and a half....most likely you will get it.Its an easy process but waiting is what kills most.After 2016 eu citizens dont need permisiion.Now I am citizen in poland but when i bought I was on permanent resident card...Also with permanent resident card you dont need permission after you have it for 5 years.

My take on it is, prices are falling so you may as well wait until they stop falling before even considering buying

With my exp in Uk & USA the prices of t homes and condos react first..meaning they start falling or rising first thus predict prices for houses whereas in Poland the prices of houses fall and increase first (maybe cuz there are more flats then houses...im not sure just exp) so if the house prices start going its time to hit the spot!

Degree with paper and no experience?will royally F$$K up...maybe its good for new architects who would make a project with new materials cheaper way....but then again you will need experience even to start....certainly not a fresh graduate as a business partner with no experience even how/when to clap during a corporate meeting:)

You may as well start moaning about the unavailability of Milk bars in USA, is US going to get communist food services at communist prices? I doubt it,

I think thats a perfect idea to start Milk Bars in the USA,betya it will thrive...then again Milk Bars in Poland arent cheap! full meal ends up around 15/20 PLN infact!

the car market in Poland is the absolute most vicious, brutal, dishonest, scam-filled, heap of sh1t you will find in all of Europe. Good luck.

If its an import from the USA then one can chek from car fax for cpl of $,my friends have caught cpl selling salvaged cars for 100s of thousand PLN esp the luxury ones.
