Temporary and Permanent Residency
Investment immigration by definition is where an individual invests a specific amount of money into the country they wish to gain permanent residency status in. The investment generally has to be made into a pre-approved project of the country the applicant seeks residency in. Normally the investment must be solely for the benefit of the country’s economy; however each jurisdiction establishes different requirements to satisfy in order to qualify for permanent residency.
Poland is a member of the European Union and is considered a prominent location for foreigners to reside in due to its central geographical location within Europe. Although Poland’s average income rate is lower in comparison to other EU member states, the country adopts a much lower rate of living costs to complement this. Poland further offers a high standard of education that is free to all Poland residents.
In order for a foreign national to settle in Poland they must first obtain a temporary residence permit. For the applicant to obtain this type of permit they must be able to provide evidence that they intend to stay in Poland for a period of longer than 3 months for the purpose of employment, education or family reasons.
All applications for the temporary residence permit will require standard basic documentation including: a valid passport copy, copies of the application form, recent passport photos and confirmation of health insurance coverage. Additional documents may be required depending on the chosen temporary residence permit.
