Hi there,

Surprisingly there is very little info about this in the whole wide internet, or its hard to find.

Can people entering Poland on dependent Visa (Non EU citizen )take up employment ? If yes are there any conditions attached

they have to apply for work permit separately. Conditions for work permit are the same as for every non-eu

Merged: How can dependent Visa spouse work in Poland?

Hi all, I am Karthik and need to know whether dependent visa wife can work in Poland and if Yes, please share your experience/thoughts/some links?

What I assume is that they can appear for job interviews here and once she is selected, then have to travel back and convert dependent visa to work permit and again come back to Poland. Please confirm my understanding OR is there any alternative?

Spoue can live in Poland but in order to work here potential employer would have to request for work permit for her. Assume that your wife will not have a job except if she is IT professional or is good candidate for work in one of BPO companies. Knowledge of Western European languages is important there.

Thanks Monitor for your response. What I am exactly trying to ask is whether the potential employer will at least schedule the interview for dependent visa candidates and if the candidate is selected, will the potential employer have the patience for work permit completion process. I need to understand the probability of this scenario. BTW - My spouse has experience in scientific research and now working as Business Analyst in India.

It depends if her profession is in need. I think that without perfect Polish language knowledge only BPO and programmers have some chance to be considered as employees. And BPOs employ mostly people speaking some Western European languages like Norwegian of French, so I think that realistically your wife has no chance for work in Poland. But she can try of course. Moreover she may do some Master or MBA studies in Poland. Graduates of Polish university don't need work permit. If she learns language meanwhile, then her chances of employment will be more than 0.

Thanks for your response. I know you have mentioned it however still want to be doube sure. You mean that if I graduate from Polish university (full/part time) then I can work in Poland without a WP? Please confirm my understanding.

Only full time studies are mentioned in the law. The shortest Master studies take 1.5 or 2 years. There are some programs in English, but better one are in Polish. To study in Poland B2 language certificate is required. There are 1 year Polish language courses after which foreigners can study in Polish. So If you're serious about staying in Poland I would recommend this way.

*I meant to study in Polish B2 language, a certificate or finishing of 1 year language preparatory course is required.

If she will be staying with you for more than 90 days then apply for National Visa (Dependent) and please check this link to know about national visa requirements.

Merged: can dependent work in Poland??

Please let me know what is the probability of getting student dependent VISA for Poland. Also can dependent get full time work permit for Poland.

I am from India

can dependent get full time work permit for Poland.

Almost certainly not. Sorry but if you want to plan on studying in Poland (and I have no idea why you would want to do that), plan around neither you nor your partner earning a cent while you are here.

if it is possible that my wife should also come with me an work fulltime here

Work as what? Work is extremely difficult, and often just about impossible, to find for foreigners who do not speak Polish.

What education, qualifications and experience does your wife possess that would interest an employer in Poland?

Not to mention the Low Wages.

So many Poles have moved away to escape poverty and this guy wants to go work for peanuts....

What kind of job were you hoping to find? You are aware that your poor command of English is going to make it very hard to find any kind of job at all?

@DominicB Okay, we get it. It's difficult to get a job there. So instead of asking about the qualifications again and again and also judging alamkhan2000, how about you first understand what the question being asked is. People are asking if some things are legal, not if they are qualified for a job in your opinion.

People are asking if some things are legal

Whether something is legal doesn't mean much if you are not qualified to get a job anyway. It might be 100% legal for someone to work in Poland. However, this does not mean that anyone is actually going to ever hire them. No qualifications, no job. Even if it is "legal". What part of that do you not understand?
18 Oct 2017 #30
Can a person with a dependent visa / student visa work in Poland legally ? Again, no one is asking whether they have the ability to get a job. I'm sure the concerned employers can discern if someone is qualified or not.My husband is an artist working in Warsaw for a gaming company. He doesn't need to be well versed in English or polish. Each job has different requirements.
