Getting a job in Poland with a working visa - Need legal advice...

Hi Guys,

I am seeking some legal advice here...

Any help would be appreciated ♥

I came to Poland/Waw a month ago with a working visa (D-06). Since then, I have been exploring the city, Polish culture and discovering cool places for myself. Simultaneously, I've been applying to different types of jobs (Intern/Junior positions). After going through a number of CV/Phone screenings, different tests and interviews I "almost" got 2 job offers. Unfortunately, in the last step of a recruitment process which is document verification, both companies and their HR deps declined my visa saying that I need to have a work permit "for general access to Polish work market".

After doing some research on Polish Labor Code, I found out that only an employer can get "work permit" ( zezwolenie na pracę). But, both companies say that they do not (want?) participate in this type of document process.

They sent me the following message yesterday:
"Dear [my name], HR Department says that you should be released from the obligation of having work permit and we cannot prepare a civil contract if you do not have a work permit "for general access to Polish work market".

My question:Is it possible to get a normal job with D-06 Working visa? What can I do if employers do not want to get a "work permit" for me?

I am really confused and frustrated.

P.S. I didn't like the work conditions of a company that initially invited me to Poland. Therefore, I didn't work there a single day.

Thank you for your help and time.

The visa is specific to the employer - since you left that job you need to start from scratch or maybe find an employer who is willing to go through the process for you. It is quite a lot of effort for the employer and being as you already left one job they might be worried that you will be wasting their time.

There are others here who will give you more precise advice.

Yes If you find an employer who is willing to go through the arduous process of obtaining a work permit to hire you. However, it is extremely unlikely that they will go through the trouble of doing so for someone at the intern/entry level.

What can I do if employers do not want to get a "work permit" for me?

Nothing at all in Poland. Return to your country of origin and start all over again.

Your original employer is obliged to inform (within 7 days) urzad wojewodski that you didn't take up the job for which you got your work permit, so your work permit and D 06 visa are probably already void (or in the process of becoming void). Better check with urzad because your stay in Poland may be illegal.
