If I have a work permit, what are the chances that my visa application will get rejected?

Hi there,

This forum has already helped me with lots of info, thanks for that, you guys are doing a great job.

I am a software professional from India. I have a job offer from Poland now.

This is the scenario I am in.

I have a notice period of 2 months in my current organization. As I understand the entire process of getting the Visa stamped (background check , work permit and Visa) might take upto 3 months. So to make it safer for me, I should wait for a max period of 3 months before resigning from my current job. Then I will have to serve the 2 months notice period and I will have to wait for a total of 3+2= 5 months before I move to Poland.

Now, 5 months is a long time, it will be great if I can somehow make it shorter.

So here is my question.

Will it be safe for me if I resign from my current job after getting the work permit from Poland ? - thereby saving the time required to get the Visa

Or in other words, what are the chances that my Visa application gets rejected if I have a work permit?

Thanks,
binith

I think that if you have work permit (which is harder to get than Visa), then Visa should be granted automatically.

Do you have to prove preexisting funds and to get an insurence for this case?

I would like to answer this question myself after going through the experience.

The only chance that a Polish Visa application based on a work permit gets rejected is if you fill up the application form wrongly or if you fail to submit the required documents (travel insurance/work permit letter for example)

Compared to the other kind of Visas the Visa based on work permit is more straight forward (There was no detailed interview , for example)
And there is no need to show proof of funds/bank statement for your stay in Poland

Thanks for your help :)

travel insurance/work permit letter

Hi Binithb,

Thanks for sharing your experience !!!

I am too in same situation and wondering how much time it will take for the whole process once I get the work permit.
Could you also share few more details:

1. How much time does it take to process and send work permit ?
I found in few old posts that it may take 2-3 months.
If I may ask how much time did it take for you ?
2. Is it required to book/reserve flight when applying for Visa?
3. For how long do we have to buy travel insurance and travel health insurance ?

Thanks in advance!!!

Good Luck...

1. How much time does it take to process and send work permit ?

Yes they say the average is about 1.5 months for getting the work permit.
In my case I think the employer got the work permit in about 2-3 weeks.
I think it depends on many factors since the work permit issuing is a Government activity.

2. Is it required to book/reserve flight when applying for Visa?
Yes while applying for Visa you need to have a reservation for the air ticket

3. For how long do we have to buy travel insurance and travel health insurance ?
Travel insurance and health insurance is same, its required for 3 months from the day of arriving in Poland. The Polish embassy website has a list of insurance providers whose insurance is accepted.

Good luck to your for your trip

When was that changed. The last thing I had heard (a number of years ago, yes) was that a foreigners first work permit could not be obtained in Poland.

@binithb

Quite old post. But I don't find any other related post where I can discuss my question.
I too have a work permit to work in Poland. I have got all documents.
1. I wonder, If I need to show them accommodation proof too? I can show the accommodation for the time in between my landing in Poland to the joining day in company (which is no more than 2 days). My company will not provide me accommodation. I have to manage by my self. What will be Embassy's reaction/queries when they get to know this information ?

2. I managed to obtain travel insurance for almost 15 days. Is it same as health insurance? Or, do I need to get a health insurance too?My health insurance day will start the day I Join my company.

One polish company ready to give me work permit

There are 38 million Poles living in Poland.

25 million are of working age.

What was the reason the Polish company said you were more qualified to work for them than 25 million Polish citizens?

This can happen, however if the work permit meets the conditions for acceptance and your visa application has all the paperwork it should be OK.

Yes, your visa can be denied even though you have a work permit. Don't quit your job until you definitely have a visa.
