I am British of British parents. I have been married to a Polish woman for 30 years And have lived in Poland for just over 1 year. I already have a Pesel but no passport. Am I eligible to apply for a Dowòd Osobisty?

Nope. The only form of acceptable identification is the passport in your case.

After 5 years of being resident in Poland, you can apply for confirmation of your permanent residency, which provides this -

- but you must legally be resident, which means having a zameldowanie and the certificate of residence as an EU citizen.

After 7 years, you can apply for Polish citizenship provided you meet the requirements, including at least a B1 pass in Polish.

Not yet. You need to get a permanent residence( you can apply for it after 3 years I think ) and 2 years after that you'll be able to apply for a polish citizenship.

Thanks for the advice.. I probably won't bother if I have to wait so long, as the Pesel was a complete nightmare.

If you are married to a Polish citizen, you will get a Polish residence card quite quickly; so why would you need Dowod Osobisty from the Polish Government?

He won't get a card from Poland until he's a permanent resident.

Amazing how ill-informed lawyers can be.

In wroclaw, it doesn't matter if you're married to a national polish, you'll need 5 years not 3 to get permanent residence.
married to a polish national won't get permanent residence much earlier

Nope, are you eu citizen?
And what's the legal basis to say it's 3 years and not 5 if anyone is married to a national polish.
