Obtaining residence permit in Poland by setting up a company or via permit from another EU country

Myself is in a relationship (same-sex) living in Australia, partner is Polish citizen and me an Australian citizen. Looking to setting up a restaurant in Poland. Exploring the better option for me to obtain a residence permit in Poland:

1) setting up a company on the basis of conducting business activity to obtain a residence permit or
2) getting my partner to live in another EU country (e.g. Germany) that recognize same sex union (register his stay with a townhall or police station) and me obtaining a residence permit on the basis of the relationship. With the residence permit obtained (e.g. Germany) apply for residence permit to live in Poland under the EU immigration rules.

I emailed the Polish consulate in Sydney and had no response from them. Would like to hear your experiences and guidance in this matter.

Regards and thank you.

This is the way to do it. What you want to do is for him to establish the company (a sole trader will do) and then he can apply for the residence/work permit for you. Job done.

Poland will simply not recognise your relationship for the purposes of residency, unfortunately.

Thanks delphiandomine for your response.

We are looking to set up a limited liability company. Is there a minimum % of shareholding for the foreign national, position to be held, minimum capital amount?

My partner intends to set up the company in Poland first and following that I will apply for the residence permit. In relation my travel movements, do I go to Poland on a tourist visa and apply for a residence permit prior to the 3 months period expiring or have my residence permit approved prior to travelling to Poland?

Do you also happen to know of immigration agent to assist in this matter?

Regards

Limited liability companies are difficult to operate in Poland, so are you sure this is the path you want to go down?

No minimum percentages and so on, although 5000PLN minimum starting capital is required.

You deal with everything here on the tourist visa.

Do you also happen to know of immigration agent to assist in this matter?

Oh, and yes, I do. I know someone that can handle everything for you remotely. I've sent you a PM with his contact details.

Obtaining a Polish Residency Permit



My plan is to continue working in Germany while relocating to western Poland (possibly Szczecin) and buying a house or apartment there.

Does anyone know where this alone would entitle me to live in Poland? I hear a lot about people working in one EU country and living in another.

If you are a EU citizen then you can for sure, but If you are British it might be too late to do all the paperwork.

If you are from the U.K., you could get a German passport and dual citizenship. I heard they are offering this to the British in Berlin at the moment. Won't work for Commonwealth citizens, though.

Yeah...to become a German is the hottest *** right now, so I've read. :)

Britons dash to become German before Brexit

reuters.com/article/us-britain-eu-germany/britons-dash-to-become-german-before-brexit-idUSKCN1IO0VY

....Driven by the prospect of Britain's withdrawal from the European Union next year, the number of British passport holders who became German citizens jumped by 162 percent last year, Germany's Federal Statistics Office said on Wednesday.

But not only Germany, France is popular too, also Belgium and Sweden:

It takes much more than merely correctly stamped paperwork to "become" a German citizen! Becoming any nationality other than one's own, means thinking, indeed, feeling, as in that culture. If not, then one's merely a duck out of water and the neighbors won't let you forget it either:-)

A person begins to take on those charactaristics of the country of which they are becoming naturalized...or else.

Nope I have lived in a few countries, it is what you make of it , and who cares about neighbours stuff em , just get on with being prosperous and enjoy life.

I don't talk to my closest neighbours (Thick inbread's) , but there again neither do the rest of the village.

I know I can't spell inbreds

Guess it might indeed be easier to go through life like Mr. Magoo, oblivious to the world around one.
In the end though, empirically, it's not worth it!
