Many years of experience in the field of labour law and practice related to advising our Clients concerning the legalisation of stay and employment of foreigners has resulted in the creation of a new department of our law firm – IMMIGRATION.

a) assistance at the stage of recruitment of foreigners – verification of the legality of the foreigner's stay in Poland and the possibility of potential employment; 

b) legalisation of stay of foreigners in Poland – assisting in the process of obtaining: 

  • national visa type D (including the purpose for which it will be issued);
  • residence permit in connection with work (including highly qualified employment - so-called Blue Card), seasonal work, business activity, studies, graduate status, residence with a Polish citizen, family reunification and others;
  • permanent residence permit;
  • residence permit for a long-term EU resident;

c) legalisation of employment of foreigners in Poland – assistance in the process of obtaining:

  • declarations on entrusting work to a foreigner (concerns citizens of Armenia, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, Russia and Ukraine);
  • work permits type A, B, C, D or E;

d) assistance in monitoring the employment status of the employee in terms of the legality of his/her stay in Poland and, consequently, the legality of the employment.
