Hello,

I would like to have some information regarding Work Permit.

I am hired by a company in Krakow and they are going to start the application process for Work Permit this week. the job start in the beginning of July.

So my question is: - Do you think there will be enough time to proceed with the work permit ? (almost 1 month). at the same time I read on the voivoda website that it should be sent to them at least one month before the date of starting the job, so do you think that it can be a reason for them to refuse the application ?

My second question is : - Once in poland, If i want to change the job do i have to apply for a new work permit ? and does it take the same time to process it ?

my last question: - a salary of 3800PLN gross per month, is it enough to live in Krakow ? any possibility to save some money with this salary ?

Thank you in advance for your answers :)

I don't know, but I guess that it is not a reason to refuse application. You can always start little later.

My second question is : - Once in poland, If i want to change the job do i have to apply for a new work permit ? and does it take the same time to process it ?

Yes you will need new work permit.

my last question: - a salary of 3800PLN gross per month, is it enough to live in Krakow ? any possibility to save some money with this salary ?

That's enough to live frugally, but not save.

Thank you for the fast answer.

There is also something I would like to be sure about. I am non-EU national but i have a student residency card from a West-european country. Does it means that for the moment I have to apply only for Polish Work Permit and that i can start work without Polish Karta pobytu (I plan to apply to it later).

As I can stay legally in Poland holding the Student residency card from EU country.

and do I have to give copies of my diplomas to the company who is going to apply for WP for me. Because i find it strange that they required only a copy of my passport in order to apply for Work Permit.

Thank you very much

To give you work permit employer has to prove that he cannot find proper candidate from Poland, not that you have diplomas. It would be different if you had Polish diploma - then you could work without work permit.

As I can stay legally in Poland holding the Student residency card from EU country.

Study that: ec.europa.eu/immigration/tab1.do?subSec=30#move

And that: migrant.info.pl/Work_permit.html

Who requires a work permit in Poland?

A foreigner who is not an EU member states national is entitled to perform work in the Republic of Poland on the basis of a work permit if he/she legally resides in Poland on the basis of:
a visa (exceptions to this principle apply- they are available here -> );
a Schengen visa or another residence document issued by another Schengen area member state;
a residence permit for a fixed period (exceptions to his principle apply and are listed below);
on the basis of visa-less travel if the provisions of an agreement concerning visa-less travel foresee the performance of work by foreigners (nationals of which counties can enter the Polish territory under the visa-less travel arrangements?->).

So it seems that your student residency card is enough to apply for work permit in Poland if it doesn't expire.

Hi,

I applied for my work permit almost 2months ago, and my company lawyer said that he got news from the adminitrastion that a decision on my case will be concluded on 1.Oct. meaning that entire process will have approximately take 2.5months. Actually, I am not really concerned about how long it takes, concerned about if there is any problem so they have to take such a long time. Because the brochure I got from the lady who got all my paper at the govenmnet building indicates that normal procedure will take upto a month except for a particular case. But some of my friends say that even indicated in the booklet like that, they normally spend 3months as provided by laws. So should I worry about this long time of process or can I just take it is a part of bureaucracy.

Any share of experience would be a big help!

P.s : I am non-EU citizen, and in the Silesian Area.

Thank you.
