1. How to obtain a residence permit once I arrive in Poland?
Once you arrive to poland you need to register your place of residence. Once you have done this you would need to go to the foreign affair office of you locality and apply for you residence permit. Google for all the requirements.

2. What is Cel Wydania - 05,06 ,07 means ?
No idea

3. Can i travel to other Schengen country without residence permit (my visa is stamped as multiple) ?
Theoretically you CAN NOT. But in most borders they don't check for any ids but i wouldn't risk.

4. How soon should I register at local authority for residence permit once I arrive Poland?
As soon as possible. You can't work without the residence

It's easiest for you to get accepted into an university. But don't expect earning money in Poland while studying, rather be prepared to spend them.

3. Can i travel to other Schengen country without residence permit

It depends on the type of Visa. If it is a "Type D" visa, then yes, travel to other Schengen countries would be allowed for up to 3 months in any 6 months period.

Merged: Visa for entering Poland?

Hi.

I am a non-EU citizen currently living in Czech Republic with my Czech partner and 2 kids. I had illegal status in Sweden but last year i was given a 90 days Schengen Visa by Czech embassy in Stockholm. Visa was given in order to make my status legal and making it possible for me to travel to Czech Republic where I was supposed to apply for Temporary Residence Permit. This is what I did. My application for Temporary Residence is still in process but my 90 days visa is expired. Is it possible for me to travel to Poland without a visa? Or do I have to apply for it? I have all necessary documents proving my relationship to my family. We are not married but we do have 2 kids together. On kids birth certificates my name is written as father. I also have medical insurance covering EU area and a confirmation letter from Czech Ministry confirming that my application for Temporary Residence Permit is in process.

Best regards
Ali

If you travel outside Czech to other Schengen countries before your residence permit is issued then you are taking a risk. You might be breaking the law, and If you are asked for any reason to show your documents then you will have a hard time making authorities understand your case.

A reason can be suspicion of having committed a crime or admission to a hospital due to unnatural causes requiring police attention (for example injuries caused by a car accident or assault).

In Poland, the law defines who is allowed to verify the legality of your presence in the country, and for what reason they may conduct verification. But there remains some communication gaps. Last year I was asked for documents by city guard (straż miejska) when I visited them to pay to a minor traffic violation. City guard are not permitted by law to question the legality of your status (only police, border guard, customs and certain official workers dealing with foreigners are allowed). Trying to argue with them only leads to them getting aggressive/defensive and generally uncooperative.

The confirmation of application for a residence permit (as far as I know) allows you to stay only in Czech until a residence card is issued. Read this letter again or call the place where you applied if you have doubts. If you remain in doubt then sit still and wait for your residence card.

2. What is Cel Wydania - 05,06 ,07 means ?

This refers to the reason you stated when you applied for a visa. They sometimes write 05-06-07 together to cover a broad range of work related applications.

05: work (for a period not exceeding six months over the next 12 months), based on statement of intention to perform work, registered with the labor authority.

06: Driver (international road transport)

07: Work based on documents other than those in points 5 and 6.

Here is a website with a the full list of of these reasons in Polish. Use google translate, it won't be 100% accurate but you will understand.

You will need to apply for a residence permit as soon as you arrive - which is now merged together with the work permit.

No, but they can call the police for assistance. Also, most bigger cities in Poland have offices of the "straż graniczna" . In Krakow they even patrol the streets. If the Straż Miejska believes that something may not be right, they are able to call for assistance from the Police or Border Guards fairly quickly.

In general, if you have received a positive decision on your status in Czech Republic you would receive a letter. It is not your residence permit but the confirmation that the decision is positive. That letter should be sufficient for your travel. That said, you may be confronted by an ignorant policeman / woman who would not accept it due to their own lack of knowledge. The worst thing that could happen to you is that you are being handed over to the Czech police at the border as they have to "deport" you back to the country you have entered Poland from, if you can prove your travel route.

All correct. If Straż Miejska believe that something is not right, they can and should ask the police the get involved, but Straż Miejska are not legally authorized to ask anyone to prove the legality of their status in Poland.

but Straż Miejska are not legally authorized

Well, you will find that Straż Miejska are not authorized to do a lot of things they would like to do. In Lodz they usually patrol the streets in a mix of Straż Miejska and Police. I welcome the idea of Straż Miejska but unfortunately they are usually the ones that could not make it as a police officer and have issues with the fact that they are only Straż Miejska and not police. That often leads to them overstretching their authority or at least they try to.

I agree with you and also like to highlight this a problem with security personnel worldwide and not just in Poland.

The following entries can appear in the "comments" section on the visa sticker for C and D visas:

The phrase "cel wydania:" (purpose of issuance) will be followed by the designations:

"01" (visa issued for the purpose of tourism)
"02" (visa issued for the purpose of visit)
"03" (visa issued for the purpose of participation in sport events)
"04" (visa issued for the purpose of running economic activity)
"05" (visa issued for the purpose of carrying out cultural activity or participation in conferences)
"06" (visa issued for the purpose of performance of statutory functions [...]

This is outdated and incorrect. Also the source I quoted in post # 11 is apparently outdated. Here is the most recent version - posted on 28.04.2015.
