Im iranian but about 7 years I live and work in Georgia.My wife is Ukrainian.she has 2year resident card of Poland(karta pobetu).more than 1 year Im coming to Poland by visa.we registered here our marriage. Now my wife is pregnant and I need to be near her (we have noone here to take care of her).I requested for Karta pobetu ,they say I must have Regular income. I cant prove that I have income. but I showed I have money in the bank here and regularly I put money there.but still its not enough for them. what can I do? I JUST WANT TO BE NEAR MY WIFE. As a HUMAN,its not my RIGHT to be with my wife?


Yes, it is a human right to have family life.

I presume your wife holds a temporary residence card. If so, the regional authorities are not obliged to issue such a card to you - which is unfortunately what the law says.

As a husband of a foreigner holding a temporary residence card you can, but you are not quaranteed to, obtain this card. The Office can require additional documents. Sometimes it helps when the person explains in writing his/her situation - maybe this would do in your case?

It is important where in Poland you are - in Warsaw, Białystok, Lublin, Krakow there are a few legal organizations who can help you write the letter to the regional authorities - please see our CONTACTS section for their coordinates.

We regret to suspend Infolinia service. For over a year, we give advice on a voluntary basis - but the scale of questions is far beyond our ability possibilities to help for free. We will unlock the service as soon as we find funds to continue. We still provide information by telephone and by e-mail.

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.
