Check-list - Temporary residence permit for high qualified workers (EU Blue Card)

Documents required to obtain a stamp in your passport (i.e. formal requirements)

To start the proceedings you also need the confirmation of the stamp duty payment.

Documents required to be granted the residence permit:

  • Annex No. 1 to the application confirms that you have the purpose of stay in Poland for more than 3 months, a stable and regular source of income and health insurance (in the case of an employment contract and a contract of mandate). On the basis of this document we check whether you have sufficient income to support yourself. The conditions of employment specified in Annex No. 1 must be valid on the day of issuing the permit and must be consistent with the conditions resulting from other documents, e.g. employment contract, labour market test;
  • original Labour market test or a document confirming the exemption from this obligation. If a document is required, the application should be accompanied by the original Labour market test for the main place of your work - the lack of such document is not a formal error, but the inclusion of all properly prepared documents when filing the application will make it easier to examine your application;
  • current document confirming the place of residence in the territory of the Republic of Poland;
  • a contract of employment concluded for a period of at least 1 year, a contract of employment, a contract of superimposed employment, a civil-law contract on the basis of which you perform work, provide services or are in an official relationship;
  • evidence of professional qualifications, e.g. original university degree and its translation into Polish by a sworn translator.
The gross annual remuneration resulting from the monthly or annual remuneration specified in the agreement may not be lower than the equivalent of 150% of the average remuneration in the national economy in the year preceding the conclusion of the agreement.
