Will opening an online company in Poland help with obtaining a visa?

Hi, my name is Paulo and I live in Brasil.

My brother and I have a online company that sells Chemistry courses - quimicaemacao.com.br

He lives in Poland because he is married with a Polish woman. So he has the permanent permission to stay in Poland. Our company runs here in Brazil, but in order to expand our business we want to stay closer.

Our intention is to open an online company in Poland so I can get the visa to live there.

Is that possible? How can we do that? Anyone here can provide this kind of services?

Please, If yes, email me at: plvalim@gmail

Thanks!

First of all Poland has bilateral agreement with Brazil, so you can come here as a tourist without any visa. Moreover when the allowed time in Poland finishes you can leave the country for example by crossing Ukrainian border and come back again. It's the same agreement as mentioned here in the topic about USA: https://polishforums.com/usa-canada/poland-bilateral-visa-waiver-agreement-69842/

If you want to come here with business visa, then requirements are following:

You must open 1 of the following types of the company in Poland:

- limited partnership
- limited joint stock partnership
- limited liability
- joint stock company - limited liability company

Only problem (except of the bureaucracy) is that those forms of business are relatively expensive.
You have to pay 50 000 pln or 100 000 pln for establishing company. And later pay for accountant to do bookkeeping.
There are other forms of companies in Poland, but not available for foreigners. Advantage of those is limited liability - up to the amount payed for establishing the company.

Another idea is for your brother to open cheaper form of the company and employ you.

by crossing Ukrainian border and come back again.

Didn't someone here post that they got stopped and refused re-entry when they did that? Search the threads, but I seem to remember that at least one person reported that they weren't allowed back in.

It happened to a friend of mine a few years. He'd overstayed his visa.

Thanks Jon. Not sure it was yourself on the other thread, but I seem to recall people do on occasion get turned back.

It couldn't be your friend because I talk about the case when Visa is not needed. No I don't work with that. Perhaps there are some companies linked on the website which I mentioned.

It wasn't. This was pre-EU accession. But it happens still. I recall a Canadian I used to work with who had problems at the border too.

Worth mentioning that the are easier countries than Poland for a Brazilian to get a Schengen visa in, and 1 visa is good for the whole Schengen zone.

Do you know which are them? Tks!

Actually we don't need the visa to go Schengen Zone, but we can stay just 90 days. What I trying to do is get a work visa, that allows me to stay 1 year and then figure out the best option Or my brother who is married with a polish woman open a company and contract me and then I can be the shareholder and stay longer.

The problem is that I've talked with lots of people and they have differents views and I don't know which is the best. =/

Is there a Freelance Visa for Poland?



Long story short: I'm Mexican, have Mexican passport, work as an ENGLISH <> SPANISH freelance translator, all of my work is done in my computer and this allows me to travel and live anywhere.

Over the last 2 years I lived in Czech Republic, I did so through a freelance visa which was easy to obtain, I mean, not easy, I had to do a lot of paper work and pay a private immigration office to do it, but still, pretty available.

Is there such a thing in Poland? Namely Krakow? Any immigration office you might know?

Regards.
