She originates from Turkey but currently studying in Belarus. She's expecting to receive a business invitation to Poland. Invitation guarantees visa.

She's asking about
1. if she's going to get the official letter from Polish embassy.
2. If she can even apply for visa being student in Belarus,
2. If it's true that it takes about a month for embassy to send the invitation.

1:the letter should be sent by the sponsor in poland on a form from immigration dept.
2:anyone can apply for a visa for any country mostly from anywhere till they have proper documents.point is if she will get it.
3:embassy dont send invitation the person who sponsors her does.embassy just decides to issue visa or deny it.

So most likely she was asking about the time it takes for Polish govt to make the decision about visa.

Well, if that's what she wants to know, there are two waiting periods. The first is after the company in Poland files the invitation letter containing a very sound reason for the visit with the UW. Approval can take a few weeks to a month, depending if everything is in order.

The second waiting period is after she herself applies for the visa, submitting all the necessary paperwork including the approved invitation letter. That can take a month, as well. Or longer if all the paperwork is not in order.

There is no "100% visa" with an invitation letter. They can still reject your application for other reasons.

The whole process can last anywhere from six weeks to six months. The former if all of the paperwork from both the company and the applicant is in absolute perfect order and fulfills the requirements to the letter. The latter if it is not.

Which department issue the invitation letter? Immigration department or any other department??

Suppose, if i receive the invitation letter from poland. Than i apply the visa.
There are high chances to get the visa or not??

Yes, the immigration department, that is, the Division for Foreigner Affairs at the Office of the Wojewódzstwo. You don't have anything to do with this. The person inviting you has to get the invitation approved.

There are high chances to get the visa or not??

Probably higher than without the letter, bit you still have to fulfill all the other requirements for the visa. It's not like you get an automatic visa just because you have an invitation letter. The consul can always say no. What the "chances" are is anyone's guess, but they are greatly reduced if you do not supply all of the necessary documentation in perfect order.

Ok. Now I think I get it. No, Olga. An invitation letter will not make up for any deficiencies in your visa application. It's not a magical runaround the normal visa application process. It's just a supporting document.

If there are deficiencies in your visa application, it will get rejected. 100%. Invitation letter or not.

Agreed, DominicB!

Olga was translating from her native language(s) and therefore the text posted was confused:-) Thread title ought to have read "Letter of Validation For Stay in Poland"

I got the idea at first that she was asking if the letter she got was some kind of scam, but the rest of the post didn't fit.

Yes, you're doubtless correct! Well, what with the lack of standards in business nowadays, anything seems to go:-

I'd try the Russian Consulate first, as apparently you're a Russian national who just happens to be in Belarus:-) They might be able to straighten things out for you, diplomatically speaking, that is.

As I mentioned, since you are likely a Russian national, the Russian Consulate/Embassy most probably handles such matters:-)

1. They don't deport you if you're leaving anyway. If you've overstayed your visa, they can however stop you from returning for a certain period of time. This is rare however I have seen it happen. You say your work permit is "underprocess" - do you have a promesa? If so, you should keep it with your passport.

2. Before EU entry when I needed a work permit there didn't used to be a problem, though I was given a bit of paper called a promesa. This may have changed, and may vary by country of origin.

3. No. You don't need a letter or approval in order to leave. Returning to Schengen though may be a serious problem if your visit visa has been overstayed.

A good place for advice would be a Russian language forum like VK. There will be plenty of people from Ukraine (who until very recently needed visas etc) and perhaps some people from Belarus who are in the same situation. In my own experience, it's rarely a problem leaving Poland, however the important thing for you is if there will be a problem returning - the best thing you can do is to speak to people from Belarus who are doing this now or people from Ukraine who have done this recently.

Edit. I just looked back in the thread and saw that your citizenship is from Turkey not Belarus. In that case, a good place for advice would be a forum for Turkish nationals like yourself who are in this exact situation right now, which is currently dependent on various policy issues to do with visas within the EU. Until visa free travel for Turkish citizens is in place hopefully soon, you may have problems re-entering Schengen - I have seen people turned away at the gate at Ataturk Airport by Turkish Airlines. Coming via Belarus probably wouldn't make any difference.

Good luck, anyway.

No, it is not valid. A real invitation letter has to be issued by the local government.

It is clear that you are trying to pay some "agent', "consultant" or "recruiter" to get you into the EU. They are all frauds, and will only steal your money and give you nothing.

Can I submit an application to invite a foreigner to Poland to the voidvoship office by mail?

I want to submit an application to invite a foreginer to Poland in summer, the thing is it needs 30 days for them to process it if it is sent by mail and immediately if we go to the office and since now the office closed all face to face meetings, is there a way I can apply for the application visa post office?
