Cost of living in Wroclaw



Hi All,

I might be moving to Wroclaw soon based on job offer, I'd like to know whats the average good salary for a software developer vacancy in a multinational company? or for cost of living in general? I've checked several web sites and gathers useful information but I'd prefer to know from people who live in the city, is 8000k PL per month (net) a good one ?

Thanks !

Work Permit for Foreigner Conditions



Hi,

Does anyone know what are the conditions for granting/approving a work permit for foreigners (non-EU) other than providing an evidence that no suitable local/Polish candidate was found for the job?

Work / Job offer in Poland and signing contract on first day of work? [11]

Hi,

I got a job offer from a multinational company in Wroclaw, and currently their relocation vendor is preparing the work permit for me which I will take after that, along with an invitation from the company, and apply for the VISA. My question is, I asked about the contract signing date and they told me it will be on the first day (the on-boarding day). My question is, if I get the work permit and the VISA... I will be a little bit concerned about quitting my current job without signing the contract yet...or is this the normal process for hiring foreigners? shall I ask the employer to send me a copy of the signed contract before I travel?

Work / Job offer in Poland and signing contract on first day of work? [11]

@Towarzysz
Thanks for the information. I'm from Egypt, what I know from my friends who are currently working in Poland is that the process usually takes the below:

- 3 weeks to obtain an evidence/approval from Polish Labour Office to hire a foreigner and that no suitable local/Polish candidate has applied for the job

- 2 months to get the work permit after Labour Office approval
- 2 weeks for the VISA

@Towarzysz
Was your Russian friend applying for a work permit as a foreigner as well? as far as I know, except for EU and some European counties (maybe Russia is one of them), work permits are needed and it takes the same duration for all nationalities, and regarding making it hard, they don't need to stretch the duration they can simply reject the VISA altogether.

@thecodergeek
Based on my quick research, 7000 to 8000 PLN (net) per month is quite reasonable, that's... 10,000K gross equals almost 7030 net

@thecodergeek
This depends on your company, but I think 3 months is a little bit too much...companies I've seen usually accept 4 to 6 weeks notice period, but at the end it all depends on your future employer in Poland

Work / Working at Volvo Company in Wroclaw [27]

Hi,

I'd like to know more info about Volvo company in Wroclaw: it's reputation, stability, pros and cons in general, etc. I've searched other websites like glassdoor but I'd also like to hear from Polish people or people who live in Wroclaw who might know about the company.

Work / Poland's National VISA and work permit [8]

Hi,

I want to know more information about applying for national VISA (type D) with work permit. I've been hearing that VISA application can be refused, even if the applicant has a job offer from a well known multinational firm in Poland, an invitation letter from the company and a work permit and other supporting documents (applying from Egypt). Are these supporting documents enough for the VISA to be granted? whats the percentage of granting/rejecting the VISA in this case?

Work / Poland's National VISA and work permit [8]

@DominicB
Thanks Dominic, that was my assumption too, but basically when going on a job offer, I will apply for temp residency upon arrival and will renew it as long as the contract goes with the employer (which is a 1-year contract then should be converted to open after 1 year).

So, what could be an indication for them that I will not return to my country if VISA expires and not renewed? or what could be a proof that I will return ? bank statements ? evidence of owned properties in my country (apartment, etc)?
