Question

hi, i have 5 years residence card from Portugal.i want to change my comment's in Poland ,is it possible? and what is the basic requirement?

Answer

Holding a Portugese residence card (I understand you mean long-term EU residency), you can apply for a similar status in Poland, as long as you do have a stable source of income in Poland (work agreement). You will be also asked to producea proof of insurance.

The issue is dealt with by the Regional Authorities (Urząd Wojewódzki).

On most websites of the Regional Authorities (there are 16 such institutions in 16 regions of Poland), you will find information on documents and samples of applications for this form of status.

Migration Helpline (Infolinia Migracyjna) is now run thanks to voluntary work of PFM staff. Before, it was maintained (2012-2014) thanks to co-financing of the project Information Center for Foreigners 2, run by PFM in partnership with the Association for Legal Intervention and the Mazovian Governor. It is co-financed by the European Fund for Integration of Third Country Nationals and by the state budget.

 

In the years 2009-2011 the project was run as part of Information Center for Foreigners run by the same partnership, also co-financed by the European Fund for Integration of Third Country Nationals and by the state budget.
