Our Customers About Our Team

  • Thank you very much Mrs. Wanda Sielewicz for your selfless support in the subject of the Swiss franc loan. After reading her article in an newspaper, I contacted the law firm where she works. I received invaluable tips and reliable help. A very professional and expert explanation of the essence and mechanisms of tricking ordinary people on a large scale by organized and trained employes of various banks. With a clear conscience I recommend her law firm. She gave me faith and courage to fight against unfair practices of the bank in which I took out a loan.

FAQ

Frequently Asked Question About Legal Services for Foreigners

  • Can a foreigner get a PESEL number?

    Sure, if you are a foreigner, it is possible in two cases:

    • you will get your PESEL number automatically if you registered your stay in Poland for longer than 30 days (we are talking about residence registration),
    • you will submit an application to the Communal Office and prove that you cannot get residence registration or get your things done at the offices, as long as you do not have the PESEL number.
  • What is a PESEL number?

    The Personal Identification Number called PESEL is an 11-digit number that allows to identify the person who owns it.

     

  • What is repatriation and who can be repatriated?

    Repatriation means a “come back to the homeland” and is also one of a few means of acquiring Polish citizenship. The repatriation law is all about people who do not have Polish citizenship and it applies only to individuals who lived permanently in one of the following countries on January 1st 2001:

    • Armenia,
    • Azerbaijan,
    • Georgia,
    • Kazakhstan,
    • Kyrgyzstan,
    • Tajikistan,
    • Turkmenistan,
    • Uzbekistan,
    • as well as the Russian Far East.
  • Is it possible to buy a real property in Poland if you are a foreigner?

    Of course it is. We will gladly help you achieve your goal, but keep in mind that it is much easier to get a permit to purchase real property if you have some ties with Poland, for instance: you live here temporarily or permanently or you are in a relationship with a Pole.

  • How does a virtual office work?

    The virtual office is an address of your company in a prestigious place that builds trust. This address can be put on your business card, you can ask anyone to send your correspondence there – do not fret, our employees will pass all the received letters on to you. In some cases, you may also arrange meetings with your customers there. 

  • How can a foreigner set up a business in Poland?

    If a foreigner comes from a country outside the EU, he/she just needs to meet one of the following requirements:

    • a temporary, permanent or a residence permit for EU long-term resident,
    • a refugee status,
    • a Pole’s Card

    so that he/she can open a business in Poland. All that is needed in this case is entering into the Register of Entrepreneurs of KRS or CEiDG and voila!

     

  • How can a Pole’s Card be obtained?

    A Pole’s Card can be obtained by an individual who has at least one parent or grandparent who is/was a Pole or two Polish great grandparents and can prove his/her tie with so-called Polishness: he/she knows basic Polish and customs. Please note that the Pole’s Card may be granted also to a person who has been very active (for at least 3 years) in the life of a Polish Diaspora when it comes to working towards knowledge on the Polish language and culture as well.

  • How can Polish citizenship be obtained?

    The citizenship may be granted to individuals who live in Poland and meet at least one of the following requirements, for instance: they are in a relationship with a Pole, they have Polish origin, they work here, or they were granted a refugee status.

     

  • What is the difference between these two work permits: type A and B?

    Type A is all about most jobs performed in Poland, type B is designed for board members or those leading a company.

     

  • When will a work permit expire?

    It is valid for a fixed term, but no longer than 3 years.

     

  • What is so special about a Residence Card?

    It confirms that a foreigner stays legally in our country. It also allows you to cross Polish borders without the need for a visa. 

     

  • How many types of residence permits are there and why?

    It depends on the situation of a foreigner – for instance how long he/she has lived in Poland – thus he/she may be granted a temporary, permanent or residence permit for EU long-term resident. There are also two other types: a permit for stay for humanitarian reasons and a permit for tolerated stay.

     

  • Does a temporary residence permit allow me to work?

    Everything depends on the kind of Residence Card you have and why it was issued. To sum up: it might be necessary to grant you a work permit, this needs to be checked by us.

Foreigners and Annual Tax Declaration – What You Need to Know

A personal identification number called PESEL is a must! The Polish Ministry of Finance will no longer accept 111111111 or 999999999 in a place where the PESEL number should be inserted. You need to have it in order to fill out your tax declaration form, it is also required by some offices. Believe me, it is really easy-peasy to get it, but – frankly speaking – due to the pandemic you may wait longer than usual.
