Assuming you are married to a Polish citizen.

You are allowed to do anything other than become an MP or the president (for those you need citizenship).

@electrical engineer: If you speak Polish then you should be able to get a decent job fairly quickly. Engineers are in strong demand.

Translators too are in high demand and well paid too. Negotiate a price though. Typically, you'll be underbid; ALWAYS overbid and overcharge, just like any other professional!

Career change for Poland?



Hi, I'm a Non-EU citizen, recently graduated LLM commercial law from UK and returned to my country and I've been wanting to move out ever since. Now, Poland isnt the only place I'm researching to get a work permit and move and I've also been looking at the demanded occupations and I am very aware that Law has no place in the list. Should I change my career? If I should, which sector would be more valuable and would also take less time and be inexpensive?

Has anyone done this before?

The problem may be that if you do not speak Polish, you will have trouble getting employed by anyone.
For you, the best way would be to find a job in the UK in your line of work and then consider alternatives.
You may wish to consider working for a corporation, find out if there are any vacancies.

You are less than minimal chance of success. The bureaucracy will kill you.
Go to any shop of the kind that you may wish to get involved in and ask the owners how they manage.

How much time do you spend in Poland? I am there (in Krakow) for 6 months every year and see what's going on.
My advice to go and ask owners of small businesses how they manage is still the best advice going.

Ofcourse there are problems but always a solution.

I'd have more faith in his prospects if he 1) he had run a similar successful business in the past for at least five years, 2) had ABUNDANT capital, 3) had lived in Poland for at least three years, and 4) spoke fluent Polish. Or if he had an active Polish partner with similar experience.

As for convenience stores, there sure are a lot of them around. It's going to take some work finding an underserved location that is capable of bringing a profit in. Like you said, restaurants are worse. Lots of them open up and close within a year, predominantly the small ones with limited capital. A farm, of course, is not an option for a non-EU citizen. And the doner kebab factory market is probably already well taken care of. The demand for kebabs is going down, too, as that fad is past its prime and the market is thing out. Again, it's going to be hard to find an underserved market that could bring in a profit.

Terri is right. If you want to make it as a foreign small business owner in Poland, you have to find a niche and create a market. You're not going to get very far aping scads of native Polish entrepreneurs on their own turf. It's going to take a good bit of originality. Based on the types of businesses this guy listed, it seems that originality is not his strong point.

There's huge demand for so called eco-stores in suburbia, and that market is still immature. However, it requires staff that know the products, and also requires detailed local knowledge to know where to source products from.

Not to mention being able to talk to the customers to explain various products...
