When will my residence card be ready for collection?
After receiving the residence permit, you should go to the City or Commune Office appropriate to your place of residence and register. The registration certificate should be submitted to the General Chancellery of the Voivodeship Office or sent to the address: Kujawsko-Pomorskie Voivodeship Office in Bydgoszcz, Department of Civil Affairs and Foreigners, ul. Konarskiego 1-3, 85-066 Bydgoszcz. The Residence Card should be ready for collection approximately 3 weeks after the submission of the registration certificate.
How to arrange a visit to the Department of Civil Affairs and Foreigners?
A visit to the Department must be booked via Electronic visit reservation. Applications – without prior reservation can be made in the General Chancellery of the local Office or by post, but this significantly increases the waiting time for the initiation of the procedure.
I have a temporary residence card, do I have to inform the Voivode about the change of employer? If so, how?
The foreigner is obliged to inform the Voivode who issued the permit, within 15 working days, that the reason for granting this permit has ceased to exist. A written statement, delivered by mail or in person, is necessary. If a foreigner wishes to stay in Poland on the basis of a temporary residence permit, he should submit another application for a temporary residence permit within 30 days from the end of the work.
Whereas, a foreigner holding a temporary residence and work permit without a specific employer indicated (e.g. as a graduate of a Polish university), when changing employer, should inform the voivode about it within 15 working days from the end of work and within 30 days submit documents confirming employment with a new employer. Documents must be submitted in writing, through the General Chancellery of the local Office or by post.
In case of failure to meet the above mentioned obligations, the voivode may initiate proceedings to withdraw the temporary residence permit.
