For more information, please contact us via the contact form or by calling 81 532 58 85 on Monday from 10.00 a.m. to 4.30 p.m. and from Tuesday to Friday from 8.00 a.m. to 2.30 p.m.


Coronavirus outbreak – special solutions for foreigners

In connection with the current epidemiological situation, on 31 March 2020 came into force an act providing, inter alia, special solutions for foreigners in Poland. The regulations will allow people who want to pursue their current purpose of stay or cannot leave Poland due to the spread of SARS-CoV-2 virus to stay legally in the country.

Until the end of the 30th day following the date of cancellation of the last state (state of epidemic emergency or state of epidemic), the following will be extended:

• legal stay of foreigners on the basis of national visas and temporary residence permits that would end during the period of state of epidemic emergency or state of epidemic,

• deadline for submitting applications for legalisation of stay,

• validity of already issued work permits, seasonal work permits and declarations of entrustment of work to a foreigner.

Moreover, the following deadlines will be postponed:

• for foreigners to leave Poland,

• of voluntary return specified in the decisions obliging the foreigner to return.

Extension of the legal stay of third-country nationals

The extension of the legal stay of a foreigner staying in Poland on the basis of a national visa and temporary residence permit will apply to situations in which the last day of legal stay will fall within the period of state of epidemic emergency or state of epidemic. It will therefore be the period from 14 March 2020, when the state of epidemic emergency was announced. Then the period of legal stay in Poland will be extended by law until the end of the 30th day following the date of cancellation of one of the above-mentioned states, whichever was in force last.

Extending the legality of your stay will not involve placing a new visa sticker on the foreigner’s travel document or issuing a new residence card. The foreigner will not be able to travel on the basis of such extended stay within the territory of other Schengen countries. However, the foreigners will be able to pursue they current purpose of stay in Poland, e.g. the performance of work. Work permits and seasonal work permits will be extended, as well as the allowed period of work based on the declaration of entrusting work to a foreigner. Foreigners will also be able to leave Poland without the risk of entering into an illegal stay.

Extension of deadlines for submitting applications

The act provides for extension of the deadlines for submitting applications for residence permits, to extend visas and to extend the stay under visa-free travel, if the deadline would fall within the period of state of epidemic emergency or state of epidemic. As before, these applications may be submitted to voivodship offices up to the 30th day following the date of cancellation of the last of the above-mentioned states that was in force. Foreigners’ stay in Poland during this period will be considered legal provided that they submit an application for legalisation of stay within the extended period.

The above solution shall apply to foreigners who would like to apply for:

• granting a temporary, permanent or long-term EU resident permit,

• extension of a national visa (symbol D) or a Schengen visa (symbol C),

• extension of the period of visa-free travel – this applies only to citizens of Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Honduras, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Singapore and Uruguay, as only the visa waiver agreements with these particular countries provide for this possibility.

Extension of dates for leaving the territory of Poland

The act contains a solution that shall be the basis for extending by law the deadlines for leaving Poland under Article 299 para. 6 of the Act on Foreigners (e.g. in connection with the delivery of a final decision refusing a temporary residence permit), if they would fall during the period of state of epidemic emergency or state of epidemic. Their extension will last until the end of the 30th day following the date of cancellation of the last of the above-mentioned states that was in force.

Extension of the periods of voluntary return specified in the decisions obliging the foreigner to return

It is assumed that the deadline for voluntary return specified in the decision obliging a foreigner to return, the end of which would fall during the period of state of epidemic emergency or state of epidemic, is postponed by law. As in the case of the other solutions contained in the act, the extension of the deadline will take place until the end of the 30th day following the date of cancelation of the last state.

The material describing in detail the solutions introduced on the basis of the Act amending the Act on special solutions related to the prevention, prevention and eradication of COVID-19, other infectious diseases and crisis situations caused by them, as well as some other acts:


Legal stay of foreigners during the state of epidemic threat

Due to the state of epidemic threat, voivodeship offices have suspended direct customer service. Therefore, all applications for the legalization of stay of foreigners in Poland may be submitted by post.

Applications for the legalization of stay of foreigners may be sent to voivodeship offices via Poczta Polska S.A. by registered mail or via any other postal operator. When submitting applications for legalisation of stay, it is important to do so during legal stay in Poland. Only then the stay during the administrative procedure will be considered legal.

Sending the application to the voivodeship office via Poczta Polska S.A. (which is the designated operator within the meaning of the Postal Law Act) before the period of legal stay has expired, guarantees that the deadline for submitting the application will be met. The legality of a foreigner’s stay during the proceedings results from the fact of submitting an appropriate application within the statutory period, and not from the fact that the foreigner has a stamp in the passport confirming submission of the application. The voivodes will return to calling applicants to appear in person, when required by law, after the restoration of direct customer service.

Legalisation of stay due to the inability to leave Poland

Foreigners who cannot leave the territory of Poland for reasons beyond their control may apply for either a visa extension or a temporary residence permit due to circumstances requiring a short stay.

Detailed information on visa extension and relevant application forms can be found HERE.

Information on the temporary residence permit due to circumstances requiring a short stay and application forms can be found HERE.

When applying for both a visa extension and a temporary residence permit due to circumstances requiring a short stay, it is important to do so during a legal stay in Poland. Only then the stay during the administrative procedure will be considered legal. Applications should be sent to the voivodeship office via Poczta Polska by registered mail or via any other postal operator. Sending the application during legal stay via Poczta Polska S.A. guarantees meeting the deadline for its submission and ensures the possibility of legal stay until the case is considered.
