Rights and obligations of foreigners in Poland

Authors: Monika Gwiazda, Dagmara Jachacz, Joanna Oleszkowicz, Tomasz Sieniow (ed.)

Staying in the territory of a foreign country entails many responsibilities, starting with fulfilling the legal requirements for crossing the border, through obtaining permission to stay and to have fixed address, as well as getting the timely renewal of a visa. Polish law guarantees liberties to foreigners legally residing in the territory of Poland, which are often equal to Polish citizens’ liberties. The knowledge of rights and responsibilities can greatly facilitate foreigner’s stay in Poland, and it is also a condition of their good integration with Polish society.

The handbook was issued within the project “Integration of foreigners in the Lublin voivodeship” and was implemented by the Institute for the Rule of Law. The project was co-financed from the European Fund for the Integration of Third-country Nationals and from the state budget.
