DUAL CITIZEN (POL/AUS) WITH AUSTRALIAN PARTNER: IS IT POSSIBLE FOR HIM TO RELOCATE TO POLAND?

Hi folks, bit of a long explanation but I'm hoping that someone on here may have had the same experience or be in the know a little better than I am. I've delved into the Polish government websites that I can understand with my basic Polish, but cannot seem to find a definitive answer. Any advice much appreciated!

Here's the scenario: I was born in Poland and moved to Australia at age five (I'm in my 40s now). I have dual citizenship between these two countries. As far as I know, I am free to move back to Poland with or without having work, however, I'm perplexed about my partner's status. We are registered de-facto couple (male and female) here in Australia, which is basically common law spouse for those that haven't come across this term. I know Poland is big on couples being married, but is he at all able to come with me (and consequently work if possible) as my de-facto partner? If so, does anybody know what I would have to apply for? If not, will the scenario change if we get married?

Thank you for reading and any insights.

Do you really think any country allows people to resettle and be given permission to work on the basis of being nothing more than a live-in boyfriend or girlfriend?

Yes I do, in fact I'm living it. In the UK, it's called an EEA family permit and classed as a durable partner. Enough said.

It's a nice day today, perhaps you should go for a stroll, not a troll.

Absent unforeseen information, if you put a ring on it then things will be much easier....

So you're "living it", huh? But it doesn't sound like you and your "durable partner" made Australia a nice place to live though. Thus your desire to leave to a more homogeneous country.

So what do you two have to offer Poland in exchange for residency?

You would have to be married for Poland to recognise her as your wife so that any privileges or responsibilities fall on both shoulders, say if you ever have children or a business together or property. If you have a Polish passport, you are welcome in Poland (with or without a job). Your partner has no such status at present.
