Classifieds / Someone help me with the Polish visa appointment! [203]

To cancel an appointment at the Polish embassy, generally, you can follow these steps:

Visit the website of the Polish embassy or consulate where you scheduled your appointment. Look for any specific instructions or guidelines regarding appointment cancellations.

Look for an "Appointments" or "Visa" section on the website. There may be a dedicated page or a link to the online appointment system.

Navigate to the appointment management section or login page for the online appointment system. You may need to provide your email address, appointment reference number, or other login credentials to access your appointment details.

Once you have accessed your appointment details, look for an option to cancel or reschedule the appointment. It may be a button or link labeled "Cancel," "Reschedule," or a similar term. Click on that option.

Follow the prompts and confirm your cancellation. The system may ask for a reason for cancellation, so provide any necessary information if required.

After confirming the cancellation, check for any confirmation message or email indicating that your appointment has been successfully canceled. Keep this confirmation for your records.

If you encounter any difficulties or cannot find the specific process on the embassy's website, it is recommended to directly contact the embassy or consulate via email or phone to request assistance with canceling your appointment.

Remember to provide as much information as possible, such as your appointment reference number, full name, and any other relevant details, to help them locate your appointment and assist you accordingly.

Law / How does Poland decide that you're a resident for tax purposes? [2]

I'm not a tax expert, but I can provide some general information that may be helpful to you. When it comes to determining tax residency in Poland, it's usually based on the concept of "center of vital interests." This means that if Poland is the country where you have your main personal and economic ties, you may be considered a tax resident there.

While the duration of your stay in Poland is a factor, it's not the only one. Other factors, such as family ties, social connections, and the location of your primary residence, can also be taken into consideration. The exact criteria used to determine tax residency can vary, and it's important to consult with a tax professional or accountant who is knowledgeable about both US and Polish tax laws to get accurate and up-to-date information.

Leasing a property in Poland alone may not automatically establish tax residency, but it can be a contributing factor. If you're concerned about potential tax implications, you should consider consulting with a tax professional who can provide personalized advice based on your specific circumstances and the applicable tax laws.

It's also worth noting that tax laws and regulations can change over time, so staying informed about any updates or changes in the tax legislation of both Poland and the US is crucial to ensure compliance and make informed decisions.

Again, I strongly recommend consulting with a tax professional or accountant who specializes in international taxation to get the most accurate and relevant advice for your situation.

Law / Polish Graduate Working in Poland with GERMAN VISA? [27]

If you have a job offer in Poland and you are a non-EU citizen, you would need to apply for a relevant residence permit in Poland to legally work and reside there. The specific type of permit you would require depends on your circumstances, such as the nature of your employment, your qualifications, and the duration of your stay.

Regarding your situation, if you have a German national D work visa, it indicates that you have authorization to work in Germany. However, this visa does not automatically grant you the right to work in Poland. You would likely need to apply for a separate residence permit in Poland based on your job offer.

The fact that you previously held a Karta Pobytu (residence permit) in Poland, even if it has expired, may be beneficial in your application process. It demonstrates your previous residence and work history in Poland, which could be taken into consideration by the relevant authorities.

To determine your eligibility and the specific requirements for obtaining a new residence permit in Poland, it is strongly advised to contact the appropriate Polish embassy or consulate in Germany or consult with an immigration lawyer who specializes in Polish immigration law. They will be able to provide you with the most accurate and up-to-date information based on your individual circumstances.

It's important to note that immigration policies and regulations can change over time. For the most accurate and up-to-date information regarding your specific situation, it is recommended to consult with the appropriate authorities or an immigration lawyer.

Po polsku / Pytanie o pozwolenie na pobyt mojego męża [3]

W przypadku starań o zezwolenie na pobyt dla męża w Polsce, władze mogą zapytać o obecność i rolę innych członków rodziny, w tym również o Państwa sytuację. Zwykle w takich przypadkach władze chcą mieć pewność, że osoby ubiegające się o zezwolenie będą przebywać w Polsce przez większość czasu i będą tam legalnie pracować lub studiować.

Jeśli będziesz musiała wyjechać do Tunezji na krótki okres, to władze mogą to zauważyć i skontaktować się z Państwem w celu uzyskania wyjaśnień. W zależności od okoliczności, może to wpłynąć na decyzję w sprawie zezwolenia na pobyt dla męża.

Ważne jest, abyście dokładnie przedstawili swoją sytuację w aplikacji o zezwolenie na pobyt dla męża, włącznie z planowanymi wyjazdami do Tunezji. W ten sposób władze będą miały pełen obraz Państwa sytuacji i będą mogły podjąć właściwą decyzję.

Najlepiej skonsultować się z prawnikiem lub doradcą ds. migracyjnych w Polsce, aby uzyskać dokładne i rzetelne informacje na temat Państwa sytuacji i procedur ubiegania się o zezwolenie na pobyt.

Law / Used vehicle bought in Poland - is it possible to unregister it from abroad? [4]

This is the info I got asking if is it possible to unregister a polish registered car abroad:

Yes, it is possible to unregister a Polish-registered car abroad. If you are the owner of a Polish-registered car and you no longer wish to use it in Poland or you are planning to sell it or permanently export it to another country, you can unregister it with the Polish authorities.

To unregister a Polish-registered car, you will need to follow the procedures established by the Polish Ministry of Infrastructure and the Polish Vehicle and Transport Technical Supervision Agency (Polish acronym: ITD). This process typically involves submitting a request for deregistration and surrendering the vehicle's registration documents to the ITD.

In order to unregister a Polish-registered car, you will need to meet certain requirements, such as having a valid identification document and proof of ownership of the vehicle. You may also need to pay any outstanding fees or fines related to the vehicle.

It is important to note that unregistering a Polish-registered car does not necessarily release you from your obligations as the owner of the vehicle. You may still be liable for certain taxes or fees, such as road tax or parking fines, even if the vehicle is no longer registered in Poland. It is always a good idea to consult with the relevant authorities and seek legal advice before unregistering a vehicle.

Genealogy / Where is Lazon? [7]

I felt this would be it. The difference between "w" and "n" is quite small and it's easy to missread this, especially from a handwritten text.

Best luck in your research.

Po polsku / Podwyżka czynszu [3]

Taka kasa za 8m2? Przegięcie.
Nie płać za ostatni miesiąc i wyprowadź się (ludzie tak robią, albo nawet całkiem olewają płacenie po kilku miesiącach, polskie prawo chroni takie osoby). Kaucja oczywiście przepadnie.

Law / Bus ticket fine in Poland (Warsaw) - what if I don't pay the fine? [36]

Make a complaint.
The best way is to go by person to the office indicated on the fine ticket and show your valid ticked, along with the fine paper. If there's an email, you can send them the scans and explain the whole situation.

I wonder why this inspector did not accept your proper ticket, what it means "it's too late".. Or maybe you bought it during inspection?

Life / Polish Nursery Rhymes [243]

I've found this:

Jeżyk i marzenia...

Jeżyk ze ślicznym noskiem,
przemierzał pewną wioskę.
Szukał schronienia na zimę,
więc miał nietęgą minę.
Patrzył, wąchał i zaglądał,
na smutnego wciąż wyglądał.

Law / Buying and registering a car as a non-resident Polish citizen [4]

Read this article:,pytania,8,28,5169.html

Part of it google translated:
A person applying for a vehicle registration certificate is obliged to submit an application for vehicle registration, in which he indicates his address. The legislator, when requesting the applicant to provide an address (town, street, house and flat number), suggests that it is simply an address where it will be possible to locate the person concerned. However, it does not require the applicant applying for the vehicle registration certificate to indicate the address of residence in the application...

Such a person, by entering the address of residence in the application form, submits a declaration that the place of residence indicated by him / her is related to the intention of permanent residence in the same place (town). Check-in for a temporary stay or the lack of registration (for permanent or temporary stay) does not constitute a spontaneous ground for refusal to register a vehicle, if the applicant meets the conditions specified by the provisions of substantive law necessary to obtain a document
