Work / What are the job opportunities in Poland for a young Italian with a law degree? [72]

I did no such thing. I just pointed out that working in a richer country would be much better than working in Poland in just about every respect, especially savings potential. Having a nest egg opens up opportunities in terms of self-improvement.

Yes? And on which basis / degree? Without a job in a SSC that would allow the OP to work for the Italian entity of the company the OP would be left with no qualifications.

So why would the OP go to a richer country as you have advised? To clean toilets, change bedsheets in a hotel? Or should he try his luck in a SSC in Poland and work for the Italian entity from Poland?

Your lack of knowledge vs. the advice you are trying to give is appauling.

You are telling the OP to go to a "richer country" without taking into consideration that his degree will be worthless unless he finds an international company to work for and again work in SSC. Something he would be able to do without any problem in Poland.

Stop giving people advice on things you know little about. You don't impress anyone here with your nonsense.

News / Does democratic Poland guarantee it's LGBT citizens respect for human and civil rights? [1169]

Also, since when did parents decide the school curriculum of their kids?

Well, we can look back in history and argue whether or not it was German parents who essentially decided on their children's curriculum in school during the Third Reich because they voted for the NSDAP. who in turn changed the curriculum to suit their needs.

Funnily enough it is today's righteous "Poles", or rather American - Poles (who were never in Poland) who know what is best for Poland, rant about German terror in Poland and yet keep displaying a Nazi-like ignorance towards anything that they believe isn't Polish. It is also the same people who believe that a "Kielbasa" is a specific type of "Polish sausage"........

Why do you even bother?

Work / What are the job opportunities in Poland for a young Italian with a law degree? [72]

So in other words, you don't have a clue!

What is an Italian lawyer going to do with his Italian law degree outside of Italy? Nothing, right?

Where would he get a chance to use his legal knowledge outside of Italy, in his native language if not in an SSC? Nowhere, right?

So when you claim that -

When there are better options available

- I wonder which options? His degree is useless outside of Italy and can only be applied by working in an SSC.

But seeing that you believe that SSC's are lousy and don't offer any perspective, I wonder why you would advise the OP to go to a richer country? What will he do in that richer country? Continue to look at his law degree which is useless for him unless he works in an SSC for a multinational company and being responsible for that multinational's Italian entity?

Work / What are the job opportunities in Poland for a young Italian with a law degree? [72]

To evaluate job opportunities just imagine which opportunities a recent Polish law graduate who speaks zero Italian in Italy might have

That's not comparable. As I did not study law, I do not know about the job market for young law graduates in Poland but I did live with an law graduate from Italy here in Lodz. He said that in Italy you won't have a chance of a good job after your graduation if you don't have the right connections.

So the choice was sitting on his law degree in Italy hoping that at some point someone will give him a chance or move to Poland to work in a job that requires his language and would allow him to learn new skills.

What's better? Having a job with some SSC in Poland, maybe working in finance.......... or sitting at home in Italy doing nothing, hoping for something to pop up at some point?

Life / 500zl banknote returns to Poland [10]

The question that springs to mind is whether intoroducing a new banknote in 2017 is a clear signal against the Euro?

I agree, an Interesting point, but lets not deviate from the topic too much

Law / Bank Account in Poland without residency or banks in the UK who will allow to have a PLN account [15]

Over the time that I have been here I have opened three accounts at three different banks (Nordea, GetIn and Millenium). None of which required a PESEL to do so. The only time they required me to provide my PESEL was when I applied for a credit card.

For account opening the only thing they wanted was my passport and a correspondence address in Poland. Providing an address in Poland should not be a problem, even without having registered a permanent or prolonged stay.

Don't make it more complicated than it actually is.

News / Poland Sports News [155]

Yesterday the IIHF confirmed that GKS Tychy will be host for the Group C preliminary round of the 2015 / 16 Continental Ice Hockey Cup. Guests will be Dunarea Galati from Romania and Coventry Blaze from England. Games will take place between 23rd and 25th of October at the "Stadion Zimowy". Very good opportunity for GKS Tychy and Polish Ice Hockey in general to present themselves on the international stage, particularly with Coventry Blaze not necessarily being a nobody in Ice Hockey.

Would have made for a good thread in the sports category of this forum........if there was such a thing.

The draw for the Champions and Europa League qualification took place today. Lech Poznan will meet FK Sarajevo in the 2nd round of the CL qualifier. Slask Wroclaw will face NK Celje (Slovenia) and Jagiellonia BiaƂystok will meet with FK Kruoja Pakruojis (Lithuania) in the first round of Europa League qualification. I would post some pictures of my visit to the stadium in Wroclaw for the game but it does not really fit into the Ekstraklasa thread. If only there was a sports category.......

Law / Vehicle (from non-EU) registration in Poland by foreigner after driving for 6 months here [11]

Police maybe in Germany, but not in Poland.

That's because in Germany there is a road tax to be paid unlike Poland where a direct road tax does not exist for passenger cars. But it is not the Police that will do the checks in Germany but mobile units of customs "Zoll" . If stopped and found out that you are driving a foreign registered car for longer than the allowed period while residing in Germany you will face charges of tax evasion.

Law / Vehicle (from non-EU) registration in Poland by foreigner after driving for 6 months here [11]

We did research this thoroughly before we came?

I do not know if you did. Are you asking me or are you telling that this is what you did?

I am surprised, but interested. Can you show me where, when you did your research, you found your information about declaring your car as personal belonging without having to pay excise duty?

Law / Vehicle (from non-EU) registration in Poland by foreigner after driving for 6 months here [11]

I,m not sure if that means you have to be coming to live permanently, or if there is a time limit...say 5 years???

Well, I would have expected that when you had the thought about how long a person would stay in Poland and how the taxman would be able to determine their length of stay, that your common sense would kick in. Apparently not.

So, no, you are not tax exempt based on how long you stay and your car most certainly won't be treated as a household item or clothing article that you bring with you when moving to Poland.

The amount you have to pay depends on how old the car is. If it is older than 6 months you will only pay excise duty which will depend on several factors such as age of car, engine size etc.

If the first registration of the car was less than 6 month ago you pay normal VAT rate of the purchasing price on top of that.

In any case whether or not the taxman wants your money for your imported car does not depend on how long you will stay in Poland.

Life / Poland Soccer League (Ekstraklasa) Discussions [13]

village of Nieciecza - only 750 residents there and now their team in Ekstraklasa! It is very interesting.

Well, yes and no. Termalica Bruk-Bet Nieciecza actually plays in Zabno, a small town with about 20000 residents. It is interesting to see small clubs making their way up the ranks but in case of Polish football, it is a complete disaster. Giving the fact that only games such as Legia vs. Lech or similar fill the stadia, imagine what the PGE Arena in Gdansk will look like when Lechia plays against Nieciecza? It will be almost empty and there won't be too many people following it on TV either.

Sorry about the late reply. The thread went off the first page of threads so quickly, I did not realize that someone replied :-)

Work / Salary Expectation for HCL Senior JAVA Developer with 4 years experience in Poland [66]

While true, that doesn't apply to you because you are not going to spend the rest of your life there, so you are not part of the economy where that has any relevance.

How do you know that the OP is not going to spend the rest of his life here? Did he mentioned this anywhere in his post or is this yet another one of your assumptions on which you base your ridiculous attempts to stop people from going to Poland?

OP is not from India, but from Spain.

I have read through post 15 four times now and I can not see the OP mentioning where he is from. Am i missing something or do you just assume that he is from Spain?

Either way, if it is HCL, you may want to reconsider jon's hint regarding the Indian terms.

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

Hi Yana, i am not sure about Warsaw but I know of a company in Lodz that would certainly be looking for Russian speakers. They would sort out your work permit and relocation for you.

It is not Warsaw, but Lodz is just 1 hour 15 minutes away from Warsaw by car. PM me if you would like to know more.

Law / Cash loan in Poland without PESEL [49]

And banking issues in PL can be very hit and miss - a lot of luck involved

Again, negative. There is no playing about. If you have no bad credit history, your bank will be happy to give you an overdraft, loan, or credit card after three months of getting your salary paid into your account.

That's no different in Poland than it is in any other European country.

a refusal is the most likely response

Negative jon. Why would a bank refuse business from a foreigner? Why do you believe that refusal is most likely?

Given that none of you has asked the right questions, i assume that none of you is capable of answering the OP's questions.

Law / Cash loan in Poland without PESEL [49]

Jolly: I know the difference and I can tell you that most cards in Poland are "debitowa".

No, it seems that you do not know the difference between a credit card and a debit card otherwise you would not have brought up the example of a "karta debitowa" when I was clearly talking about credit cards.

I "love" those pretending all is easy but they never tell us what to do.

I have already given you the example of myself in post 23. Somehow you have successfully ignored that example.

"debitowa" cards

I am not talking about Debit Cards. I am talking about Credit Cards. That's two different things. And yes, banks issue credit cards (also to foreigners) and hence grant a credit facility if the applicant has had three consecutive salaries and not a bad credit rating.

The fact that you confuse debit cards with credit cards is a clear indication that you may not really know what you are talking about.

Law / Cash loan in Poland without PESEL [49]

By having a PESEL and his salary paid into his bank account for three month. Having no financial history in Poland is better than having a negative credit rating. Everyone has to start somewhere, right?

I have applied for a credit card three month after I arrived in Lodz and it was not even with the bank i got my salary paid to (because mt bank did not have English internet banking). Absolutely no problem. But, you need to have PESEL.

Law / Cash loan in Poland without PESEL [49]

Try to borrow money from a bank in a country where you don't have permanent resident and you'll come to tell us ;)

I did not say that it is possible to do so.

However, your argument was that a bank would not lend money to a foreigner who might leave the country overnight. That can happen with any foreigner even if that person has permanent residency and been living in Poland for a number of years.

Law / Cash loan in Poland without PESEL [49]

Pure common sense! No bank wants to take risks in lending to foreigners who might leave the country any time and overnight

Do you sometimes think before you post?

So what if the foreigner has registered his stay in Poland and has a PESEL number? Does the PESEL number physically stop him / her from leaving the country after getting a loan or maxing out a credit card? I guess not, agree?

The reason why banks require the PESEL is to perform their credit checks. It has nothing to do with "trusting the foreigner".

Needless to say that I do have a bank account in pln...

Get your PESEL sorted and apply for a credit card, loan or overdraft with the bank you get your salary paid into. With a salary of 4k gross you should not expect them to issue you with a platinum visa card but it should be enough to get the 4 - 5k PLN you are looking for.

Law / Do I need a boat licence for a lake in Poland? [9]

Jeziorsko close too Lodz

Just plot around the lake ... few beers

Don't let the police catch you. They do hand out tickets to people drinking while on the lake on a boat, blow up mattress etc.
