Now , this could be a tricky one....! This year my Russian girlfriend is coming to live with me in my home in Polska , i am an Englishman who has lived here for five years...

Up to now i have been registering as a resident on my farm every three months , but next time i do it it covers me for five years....

What i need to know is.......How do we go about getting permission for my girlfriend to live at my home , can she work here , and what is the position if we decide to get married either in Poland , or more likely in Moscow....

I think i have just about sussed out the position as regards visiting my family in the UK with a Russian wife , but the Polish situation is still a bit of a Mystery to me....

I have the right to live and work in Polska , but what about my Russian wife....?

Any help appreciated...

We are not quite ready to marry just yet , i was just wondering what the situation would be if we did marry....

We get on so well , and for sure we are going to be together , but nooo not married just yet....

I also want to deny any connection with a long haired Harley rider that was involved in an incident in Polczyn zdroj...! It was not me hanging naked from a tractor inner tube in the park....just somebody that looked like me....ok..?

And i have never been to the Rynek.... yet...?

Wildrover:

I can't help you with your question as I don't have a clue about these things, but I do sincerely wish you all the happiness in this world with your Russian girl.

Hey, If there's a stag do and it coincides I'm in Gdynia.... I want an invite OK... (if you organise a really good one I might even jump on a plane for it)

Let me know, my wild friend, I'll send my condolences. Just keep in mind my advice in regards to the boat trip over the Dnieper river ;) It will solve any problems you might have :)

But on a more cheerful note, wish you the best, pal :)

wildrover - sometime you said you are Englishman and sometimes you called yourself Russian, so what are you?

Not 100% sure, but if you wed in the UK, ain,t there a time period where your spouse would automatically qualify for British citizenship ( hence passport ) ? I don,t think it,s that long.

Then registering and working in Poland would be as for any other EU national.
Tie the knot man, it,s obvious you,re in love. DO IT !!!

btw, Best regards.

hey, wildrover, would you like to come and visit me/us? Can you get your sh!t together by next Daytona bikeweek, next March? Or maybe even biketoberfest, in ..umm October?

You're not exactly mobile, with all those cats, are you? I think a far away trip would do you good. I'm offering free room and board, some touring, possible use of a bike, for up to a month. Or two days, if you're a real a$$hole, which I don't think you are. ;)

OK, I know this post is late, but maybe it will be helpful - Wildrover, your girlfirend/future wife doesn't need a permit for living in Poland. It's because of the EU laws and the freedom of movements of workers rule. Basically it means that as an EU citizien you have the right to work/study in every country of the EU and your spouse/partner have the same right. Even if they themselves are not the citizen of the EU.

Now, if you two wanted to live in the UK, she would need a permit in accordance to the UK law. Same if you were Polish and wanted your non-EU girlfriend to live in Poland - she would need a permit in accordance to the Polish law. But since you are an EU-citizen (a Brit), living in another EU member-state (Poalnd), European law takes precedence before the Polish law. Hence, she doesn't need a permit. This is the theory, though. In practice many administration workers don't really have a clue about EU law and how it should be applied and there might be some problems with it.

From what I've gathered, now Wildy is selling the farm and moving to Moscow.

This is the theory, though.

Your theory is nice, but wrong.

Wildrover, your girlfirend/future wife doesn't need a permit for living in Poland.

Girlfriends have no rights, unless children (belonging to both parents) are involved.

As for wives - yes, they have the right of residence, but still need to apply for an entry visa. They also need a residence permit after the visa expires.

Nationality of the EU citizen doesn't matter one bit - they are all treated equally in the country in question. However - to take up EU treaty rights, there's a general obligation for the EU citizen to have valid residency in the country in which they wish to reside - it's not enough to say "im living there now".
