Polish residency card - how long to request a new card after losing the old one?

New to Warsaw
10 Jan 2015 #1
We have lost my wife's Polish residency card - how long will it take to arrange a new card?

Will we need to start the application all over again or can we simply request a reprint of the card?- It was a very new card, only 1-2 months old.

Any advice on how to do this, any other information would be great, thanks.

By the way, I am British, she is Chinese. We both live in Warsaw.

First, she should promptly notify about this fact the voivode that issued this card. This should be up to 3 days from the date of loss. Then the application is made for the replacement of residence card. She need to fill an application, submit two recent photos 4,5 cm × 3,5 cm, proof of identity and citizenship (1 photocopy + original available for inspection). It is also often required to provide a proof of notification to the Police about the loss of this document.

After proper application she'll receive a certificate (free of charge) that confirms this fact.

The voivode shall issue a decision immediately after the investigation procedure within 30 days from the date of filing.

I was never interviewed for my 2 year cards which I applied for and got it twice or three times I forgot now,but was interviewed when I got my "permission to settle card" in 2009.
