PESEL urgently need - Current order of applications?

Hi all

I am currently in the process of getting registered in Poland and I was wondering if someone has information on the most up-to-date process of getting a PESEL?

So far we have done:

1) Gone to Urząd Miejski with our landlord to apply for meldunek (We were told that this first one would be for 1 month stay)

We didn't get a meldunek but a self-written A4 piece of paper confirming that we live at the address we live at.

2) With this piece of paper we went to the foreign office (@ Urząd Wojewódzki) and filled in a 'wniosek o zarejestrowanie pobytu'

We have now waited for 1 month and have been told that our papers are ready for collection. So what's next?

Previously we were told that we would get a PESEL at the foreign office together with the application done on 2). But they said we would not and that we would have to

go to the city hall with the confirmation we will get back from 2).

Also we were told that we would have to go back to 1) and cancel the first piece of confirmation and then go back with our landlady the next day and do the same thing again.

Any idea on the latest process here? It seems it keeps changing and no one really knows what's going on. We really need our PESEL in order to register our self-employment.

Thanks a lot

After I was here for three months, a PESEL number was automatically assigned to me. The office involved, told me this when I asked about it. They never volunteered the information until I mentioned it.

Correct. It can be done on the same day, however. Usually the de-registration and re-registration is done at the same time. You then have to go back for the PESEL a couple of weeks later once it's created.

In order to register your place of residence, you should have your contract signed between you and landlord - if the contract is in any other language than in Polish you will need the presence of the landlord with you and you should go to Urzad Miasta - City Hall and fill in one form which will not take very long time. If there is no contract, you should take the person who is giving you accomodation (along with ownership papers) and ask how to proceed in Urzad Miasta.

I lately heard from some people, they stopped giving PESEL number to foreigners except for people who have permanent residence card, in the past when you register yourself in Urzad Miasta you were able to tell them you would like to have a PESEL number and after a few weeks you could go back and ask them for PESEL confirmation..

That depends on where you are from.

is it necessary to have one ?

That depends what you want to do in Poland.

It's the case for non-EU citizens for certain. Not sure about EU citizens.

Anyway, the reason is that your ID card number functions as your PESEL on governmental databases.
