Is there some way to extend the residence permit here in Poland? I have a tourist visa.

and it is possible to get a work permit for any certain job while in Poland, correct? meaning you don't have to be in your home country to apply for the permit. although i feel there is a distinct lack of jobs for English speakers specifically, which is as it should be, but i couldn't expect to get a job in 90 days, and apply for necessary work permits.

maybe it would be good of me to note that i would be allowed to work during the 90 day period.

In theory, yes. But if they refuse to grant the visa extension (which isn't in law anywhere - it's at their discretion) - you'd have to leave at 90 days. The only way to guarantee that you'll get a decision is to apply before the 45th day in the Schengen zone.

ahhh i thought you meant that they would grant you an automatic extension of sorts until they decide to approve, i guess that's too much to hope for haha.

and yes, i know about the limits, the last thing i would want to do is overstay my visa.

hmmm i wonder if the paper work is possible due to my already having been in school.

thanks for your help so far.

and to Harry:

that seems reasonable, so certainly it would have to be grouped with something like a job or lease agreement.

Actually, you cannot apply for a work permit, only a potential employer can.

That is possible but you need guaranteed funds coming in every month and a guaranteed place to stay.

From what I know, they basically won't entertain such applications unless you can prove a significant amount of funds and a purchased (not rented) property.

The work permit takes about a month to come through, so you're already in trouble with the time limit there.

maybe it would be good of me to note that i would be allowed to work during the 90 day period.

No, you aren't allowed to work on a tourist visa. You need to have the work permit *and* an application under way for a residence permit.

ahhh i thought you meant that they would grant you an automatic extension of sorts until they decide to approve, i guess that's too much to hope for haha.

They might, but it's not automatic - it's up to the decision makers. It's a risky strategy.

hmmm i wonder if the paper work is possible due to my already having been in school.

What I mean by paperwork is the requirement for your diploma to receive an Apostille, notorized and put through the Polish nostrification process. Not easy at all, and takes a considerable amount of time.

ah sorry, i misspoke. but it is possible to get one while in poland correct? also, is a Polish typical CV similar to an american one? i have heard that the Polish ones in general are more detailed.

No, you aren't allowed to work on a tourist visa. You need to have the work permit *and* an application under way for a residence permit.

eh i guess i was looking at the not required for 90 days business visa.

yes, i have heard that that sort of process for school documents takes a long time.

so from what you are saying, it would be pretty difficult to have even the possibility of extending my stay, and i would most likely have to leave the schengen zone for 90 days.

Oh dear Deepak, yet again you have been shown to know sweet fucck all about what you are mouthing off about.

don't worry, i am not listening to any of his advice, even with what little knowledge of the subject i have, i at least have common sense.

It's not difficult if you can find enough work to pay you the minimum monthly wage. However, your chances of finding that in January are remote in Gliwice.

Except that medical reasons would have to be pretty serious to get a residence permit based on that - it would need to be long term care. No doctor is going to issue such a certificate unless it's genuine - they will check it out.

That's good to hear.

Anyway, there's a fair bit of information at this website about work permits:
malopolska.uw.gov.pl/default.aspx?page=Work_permit_for_foreigner_work_in_Poland

And here about residency permits:
malopolska.uw.gov.pl/default.aspx?page=Residence_permit_for_fixed_period

The above are for Krakow but the rules are the same nationwide.

If you need any more help, just ask here.

oh well, i suspected as much.

Thanks a lot, this really helps.

also, do any of you know if there is an expat community, or native English speakers (or Canadians) in Gliwice? i know there is a comparatively high proportion of polish English speakers due to the university town.

hello again, I have looked at the conditions for getting an employer to apply for a work permit, and i read that the voivod will only grant one for a foreigner if there are no polish candidates for the job. As i am only a high school graduate, from a poor family (meaning i have no sort of connections) i guess this means it would be completely impossible to get even the most basic job seeing as pretty much every polish citizen is automatically preferred :(

^ Not really: what the prospective employer has to do is write the specification for the desired employee in a way that means the chances of a Pole fitting that specification is very slim.

Which is very easy to do for anyone that has half a brain.

Actually, it's more that there are no candidates for the job within the EU, not just Poland. But in practice, work permits are issued easily provide you know what you're doing on the form.

And that would be a legal way of getting a job? wouldn't someone notice if the employer manipulates the job requirements?
this is an interesting development.

i wonder if teaching guitar lessons privately is an activity that i would need a work permit for, or if it falls under the art category.
