Poland

If your company is sending employees to Poland—Fragomen is here to help. Working closely with our Local Advisors in Poland, we provide the immigration strategies and support you need to get your employees on the ground as quickly as possible. 

Polish law provides many solutions to help employers of foreign nationals.  Requirements, processing times, employment eligibility, and benefits for accompanying family members vary by visa classification.

Business visitors to Poland typically use a local version of the Schengen C Visa, unless they are visa exempt based on their nationality. The Schengen area limits stays to 90 days in a 180-day period.

The main work authorization categories are the Work Permit for Local Hire, used by local hires who meet a salary threshold; the Work Permit for Intracompany Transfer, used by skilled intracompany transfers; and the Blue Card, used by highly-skilled local hires (only used for renewals in practice).

Immigration requirements can vary by region. Support documents require official translation, and original or notarized copies of degree certificates are required.

Detailed Immigration Snapshots, Document Lists and Process Guides are available to clients on request.
