Law / Preparations for Leaving Poland and ZUS/NFZ insurance [4]

I did nothing while being in Poland.
After I had left, I sent e-mail to NFZ and Urząd Wojewódzki.
NFZ asked for: a document from University confirming that I don't study there anymore, confirmation of all payments made to ZUS and request for termination of the contract (a form found on their website). Later, they sent me confirmation that agreement is terminated.

Urząd Wojewódzki asked me to notify them in order to revoke my residence permission and to return my residence card in person or by post. I asked them if there a possibility to return it to Polish embassy, but haven't got any clear answer. Since my card has already expired, I haven't done anything.

While in the airport, upon passport check before leaving I was asked to show my residence card (since I was in Poland much longer than 3 month).

So in the end, there was nothing that can't be done by e-mail or by post.

Law / Preparations for Leaving Poland and ZUS/NFZ insurance [4]

I studied in Poland for two years. During that time I was paying to ZUS/NFZ for health insurance. Also, at the moment I have a residence card valid till the end of this year.

I'd like to know..
Do I have to cancel my ZUS/NFZ insurance or I can just stop paying it? (if yes, can it be done via internet?)
Do I have to return the residence card?

Any other common legal issues that one need to take care of before leaving the country?

Real Estate / Renting a flat in Warsaw for 9 months (no knowledge of Polish language) and prices [6]

Thanks for quick responses,

"in Poland like anywhere else don't say it's only for a short period of time."
Do you mean at all (and with prior notice, it's easy to leave earlier without loosing a deposit or need to find another tenant) or just in the begging?

Also, is a usually required one month deposit a payment for the last month of stay or just money that is given back after leaving the flat?

Real Estate / Renting a flat in Warsaw for 9 months (no knowledge of Polish language) and prices [6]


I arrive in Warsaw in a few days and plan to rent a flat (for the next 9 month).
Can there be a problem with renting for less than a year (can landlords ask for higher price, etc.)?

Is it easy to rent a flat not knowing Polish?(are landlords, real estate agents generally know English/ willing to deal with English speakers)?

What is the average rent for a good but small studio (~30 meters) flat not far from the center (Warsaw)?
I've found these sites and would like to hear any opinions, if somebody used them. (many ads with suspiciously low rent, 1000-1200 zl.)
