Lived in Poland on temporary residency, now getting married. My status in Poland?

Hey everyone,

My girlfriend and I are getting married in July and so far everything is going well, planning and such. My question is, what will change about my status in Poland?

The past 3 years I have been living in Poland with a temporary residency. I have to re-apply for this every year and it's a huge pain. I heard it'll be a lot easier when I'm married and I won't have to deal with as much paperwork.

My other question comes through planning our honeymoon. In a place like Bolivia for example, you can travel there without a visa as Polish citizen but not as a US citizen. So in order for me to meet the standards of a Polish citizen would that mean I need to have a Polish passport?

I think I have already answered my question, if anyone could help let me know.

How much can a Bolivian visa cost-Pollish Citizenship would almost certainly work out dearer...Marrying a Bolivian may be the easiest way to go?

But this would not give you a presumably backdoor entrance to the EU.

Nothing. You'll still have to apply for residence permits and so on - except you won't need a work permit.

Yep. Marriage will only give you the right of working and residence in the EU, nothing else.

I always getting a work permit has no relation to your marriage status?

Well - if your residence permit is based on family (ie, dependent on/married to) an EU citizen, then you don't need to obtain a work permit in order to work here. But if it's based upon work, then yes, you need a work permit for every job.

The idiotic thing is that there's nothing on the actual Karta Pobytu to actually show this.
