What is a work permit?
A work permit is a document that authorizes a foreigner to work legally in Poland. A permit is issued by the voivode (local governor) competent for the seat / place of residence of the employer. The permit indicates the company that entrusts the execution of work to the foreigner and the position or the type of work which the foreigner is to perform.
The work is therefore regarded as legal only if the foreigner performs the work identified in the permit.
This means that if the foreigner wants to change jobs (i.e. change employer and / or position and / or industry) in which he is employed, he must obtain a new permit.
Validity periods of work permits
A work permit is issued for a fixed period, however, for no longer than 3 years. In the case of foreigners who perform work as members of boards of companies employing more than 25 people at the time of application for a permit, the voivode may issue a permit for a period not longer than 5 years. Although the law indicates for what period a work permit may be granted, the voivode may shorten the period for which work permits in the voivodship are issued. The validity of the permit to work may therefore vary between voivodships.
