Back from the UK and working in Poland

Greeting to all

I have been in UK for 4 years and had to move back to my home country INDIA for some personal reasons which i couldn't avoid.

Now i have tried to get back to UK but its not feasible as there are so much regulations and there are no jobs.

After lots of inquiry my employer in UK which was a restaurant owner have advice me to look forward to work in Poland under his friend with work permit for 2 years.I have been offered 700 euros + F&A.Now i have a few queries to you friends,

1. Once my 2 years contract is over, will i be able to extend it by staying there or i have to come back home.

2. If i have to do the extension, i have to do the whole process from scratch ?

3. Can i file for PR after 1 year of my stay under work permit ?

4. If Food and Accommodation are provided what can be the extra expenses i have to cover ?

5. While working in UK i have been always scared of Polish people because they ( some ) used to be very angry for simple reasons, so will that be safe for me to move there being an asian ?

Sorry for all n00b queries, thanks for your time in reading this.

Cheers.

700 Euro a month on top of food and accomadation is very good pay for a restaurant job in Poland. Are you sure about the terms of the offer?

1) Probably not, unless your employer decides to extend the offer.

2) Yes, you will have to do everything from scratch.

3) You can apply for permanent residincy only after five years.

4) Clothing, books, computer, cell phone, entertainment, travel... 2800 PLN disposal income means a pretty comfortable life for one person in Poland. You'll be able to save some money up if you spend it wisely. Leaving with 10,000 Euro in your pocket is not unreasonable if you live frugally.

5) I would say that, as an Indian, you will be treated reasonably well in Poland, especially at your income level. You might encounter an occasional jerk, but I wouldn't expect any major problems as far as personal safety is concerned.

I would also take the time to learn as much Polish as you possibly can before you come. It helps a lot, and can save you a lot of money.

You need to make sure that your future employer is honest about the 700 euro because I think it's a bit higher than what you would expect from restaurant jobs, therefor make sure that he won't change his mind ones you're there in Poland cos you will find yourself stuck, specially if there is no contract

I have been offered 700 euros

You sure you don't mean Zlotych?

You do realise that Polish currency is the Zlotych and not the Euro, right?

700 Euro is currently 2,770 PLN and thats a bloody good wage for a Waiter especially with F & A thrown in.

I also have my doubts. 700 PLN is more like it. I don't think there are any waiters in Poland that earn 2800 PLN and get food and accomodation thrown in. It seems fantastic.

I've known a few who make that much per week (just work somewhere fairly expensive which gets lots of American tourists in and let's waiting staff keep their tips).

Not going to be offered to an Indian though, is it?

This sounds very much like someone wants a slave - offer him a ridiculously high salary, let him come here, then be all "oh, sorry, we meant zloty" and get him to work to the bone for peanuts.

Thanks all for the prompt responses
Not its 700 euros itself.

But now its funny that hes asking for 9000 euros(4500 once work permit is stamped and 4500 on arrival @ restaurant ) to get this done and saying hes charging this much as i can file for PR after 1 year being on work permit which is fake according to you friends.

I guess its not worth to move with this as there wont be 4500 euros left as savings after 2 years. And again spending this much from scratch for extension is like running in circles.

Time to move on and search for better option i guess ?

Once again thnx a bunch.

Yes, it's not true at all. You need to work here for 5 years consecutively to obtain permanent residency.

What's he's doing is probably legitimate enough (except the earnings part - no way will you get 700 euro a month here) - 9000 euro is hardly worth a 1 year residence permit.

9000 euro is hardly worth a 1 year residence permit.

Especially not as sham marriages to EU citizens start at less than a quarter of that price.

You can apply for permanent residence after 10 years living in Poland. Temporary stay is up to 2 years. After this period you must apply for the next two years of temporary residence. I do not know exactly how it looks but I know that if you are able to prove you have a job you should not have a problem with an extension of temporary residency.

Aaah, that famous indian solidarity :-)

IMO Poland would be much better off if it opened its borders to Poles living abroad, especially in such wonderlands as Ukraine, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Russia as opposed to "importing" indians and pakistanis.

But hell, what do I know...

It's already done. Called the Karta Polaka.

I have permanent residency status and I haven't lived in Poland for 10 years.

That only works if you marry.

IMO it should be a matter of greater importance to the Polish government and they should be pursuing the matter more actively. Poland will really be much better off "importing" people who come from their own cultural background and stock, I dare say, looking at France for example.

But again, what do I know...

Nope, I have lived here for 7 years and got my permanent residence a year ago. I am not married.

Now i have tried to get back to UK but its not feasible as there are so much regulations and there are no jobs.

There are plenty of chef jobs, but the requirements are much higher now, which means your old employers were paying less than required for you to earn the points - am I correct?
