Immigration to Poland
Let’s start discussion with immigration services in Poland. Immigration services in Poland are organized with the most convenient way since Polish immigration law became quite well-defined. The authority, which is responsible to the immigration issues is The Migration Policy Department at the Ministry of Interior, Hereby I will remind you that above mentioned authority provides information on residence permits on the basis of the investment. The Polish law is peculiarly complex, therefore, lawyer advice is recommended.
A residence permit in Poland can be obtained in several ways. One of the variants to get a residence permit is to open a company in Poland, which is useful if you want to start a business in Poland or any of the European Union countries. other is to obtain a temporary residence permit in Poland, which means to be employed or to enroll as a student.

In order to make your immigration procedure lawful you have to follow all the requirements in accordance with immigration law (see below) of the Republic of Poland. There are several possibilities, Which depends on your visit purpose. You will need a visa or Schengen visa in order to visit the country. If you obtain a residence permit via options listed above, you may travel to any Schengen country without an additional visa. If you are gonna relocate in Poland for a long period of time – you need a residence permit, which can be obtained on the following purposes: setting up a company in Poland, getting an education or getting a job.
Migration within Schengen area
You may know, but I will still say that Poland is a member of the Schengen area. The Schengen countries have abolished passport and immigration control for their common borders and travel between member states. Member States also recognize Schengen visas issued in other Schengen countries. Normal immigration control procedures are used at the external border, or as soon as you enter the Schengen area, although admission to any Schengen country is considered acceptable throughout the Schengen region (all Member States) where immigration checks are no longer required.
Third-country nationals who have a long-term visa can stay in the Republic of Poland for more than 90 days. Due to strict immigration policies, it can sometimes be difficult to obtain a Schengen visa directly from Poland. A list of documents and grounds for applying for a visa can be found on the website of the Ministry of Internal Affairs. One option for a non-EU citizen to apply for a residence permit is to start a business in Poland.
