If you are a non-EU citizen who wants to work in Poland, you must first obtain a work permit. To apply for a work permit, you must have a job offer from a Polish employer. The employer must also receive a confirmation from the local labor office that no qualified Polish citizens are available to fill the position. Once the employer has these documents, they can apply for your work permit on your behalf. If you are granted a work permit, you will also need a residence permit. This can be done by applying for a visa at your nearest Polish consulate or embassy. If you change jobs, you will need to apply for a new work permit. A work permit is only valid for three years.


Application Process

Your employer is responsible for obtaining a work permit on your behalf. For example, assume you’ve found a willing employer and your stay has been legalized (either on a visa you have obtained or on a residence permit). To get a work visa, your potential employer must complete a work permit application that includes the name of the firm you are recruiting for and your future job description within this company.

If you are offered a job in Poland, your company is responsible for obtaining a work permit on your behalf. Before applying for a foreign work visa, a firm must undertake a labor market analysis. This test aims to determine whether any Polish or other EU residents are qualified to fill the position. These individuals are given priority over foreign nationals. If no qualifying candidates are available, the business might apply for a work visa on your behalf.

With the application, the employer must attach documents demonstrating that the following conditions are met: All applicable employment rules, including provisions of the Labor Code, are met in terms of working conditions. The Voivodeship Office states that remuneration should not be less than 30% of the average monthly wage.


Documents Required to be Submitted by the Employer

-A completed application form
-Evidence of payment of application fees
-Confirmation of the legal status of the employer from the National Court Register
-Current records of the employer’s economic activity
-Copies of the applicant’s passport pages with relevant travel information
-Evidence that the applicant has health insurance
-A deed for the company
-A copy of a statement regarding profits or losses of the employer
-A copy of a contract following the service being provided by the business in Poland

Work permits are issued by a local “voivode” (government land head) and are issued for the duration of stay needed to perform the work stated in the declaration of your employer. You need to sign an employment contract with the employer that applied for your permit to make the work permit valid. Employees should be informed that their work permits are only valid for employment with the company that applied for them. Therefore, if they decide to change jobs, their new employer will have to file for new permission.


Your Employer is Legally Obliged to:

– Give you the employment contract in writing
– Provide you with a translation of the employment contract in your preferred language
– Check the validity and make a copy of your residence permit or visa
– Notify social security and health insurance institutions within seven days after the employment contract is signed, which gives you access to free healthcare, sickness leave, and other social benefits.
