Resign from current work (60 days notice period) after receiving job offer in Poland (work permit in 2 months)

i've received a job offer from company in Poland and they send me that they will provide me with the work permit in 2 months, so my question is it right to resign from my current company before receiving work permit as i have to stay at my company for 2 months as notice period or it's risk and the new company may not send the work permit ?

Never resign until you are 100% sure that you have the new job nailed, including the work permit and all paperwork finished. Never even mention to your present employer any plans you may have about looking for, finding or getting a new job until you are ready to pack your bags. It could fall through, and you could find yourself out of a job.

At that point, you can give notice. Two months notice is a bit excessive for an at will employee. Two weeks is the usual courtesy that employers ask for, though you are not legally, morally or ethically obligated to give any notice at all, unless it is specifically stated in your contract. On the flip side, they have no obligation to give you any notice and can dismiss you at any time without notice even is you are a model employee, unless it's specifically written in your contract.

Don't feel bad about give short notice. Never endanger you own job until you are sure.

is it possible for the work permit to be rejected ?

Yes, it is possible that your prospective employer will not be granted permission to hire you, in which case you are plum out of luck, and there isn't anything you can do.

what do you think the percentage of not completing the process ?

This isn't a casino. It's real life. And any "percentages" would be completely irrelevant to your particular case. It is enough to know that it could happen, it does happen, and it might happen to you. So don't make any plans to travel or quit your job until your prospective employer has ALL the ducks neatly lined up and you are 100% sure they do indeed have a job waiting for you.

oes Norway policy stops us for visit purpose to norway

how did you get a work permit? It takes about two seconds to google Schengen and realize that there are no border controls between Poland and Norway.

Of course you can be stopped anywhere at any time in Schengen and if you story's too suspicious you could have problems....

there are no border controls between Poland and Norway.

Norway restored border controls with other Schengen states earlier this year.

Hi,

I am a EU Blue Card holder in Poland which means my spouse is eligible to work in Poland without work permit. My spouse is having D type visa. Does he need to apply for karta pobytu first or he can start work on this D type visa + my Blue card as work permit.

Please help.
