It depends on the type of visa. National visa holders retain the right to cross the state border and stay on the territory of the Republic of Poland during the epidemic/epidemic state, and for a period of 30 days after the last state is revoked. You can legally leave Poland straight to your country of permanent residence and come back to Poland, there will be no possibility of transit, e.g. from Poland via German, on extended visa.
Coronavirus outbreak – regulations for foreigners
Yes. If the last day of validity of your residence card fell during the period of an epidemic/epidemic state, announced in connection with SARS-CoV-2 virus infections, the validity period of this residence card will be extended by operation of law until the 30th day following the day of cancellation of this states which were last in force. This means that you have the right to use your residence card as valid despite the expiry of the validity end date specified therein. With such a residence card, you retain the right to cross the polish state border.
If you entered Poland after 14 March 2020 and you have not applied for a temporary residence permit before the expiry of the visa validity period, i.e. during the period of your legal stay, you will still be able to submit an application for a temporary residence permit.
cont. question: hence, I want to know if there is possibility to send the Blue card to Polish Embassy in my home country and I can go and collect from there? If not is there any way someone can come and collect the card on behalf of me?
Unfortunately, no. It is not possible to collect a residence card without an online visit booking.
Currently, it is only possible to make an appointment via the online visit reservation panel to collect the residence card - book the appointment HERE.
The rule applies to all locations of the Office: Poznań, Kalisz. Konin, Leszno, Piła. Check the addresses HERE.
You may book an appointment to submit your fingerprints at any location of the Office: Poznan, Kalisz, Konin, Leszno, Pila. You will find the addresses HERE
However, the submission of fingerprints in a location other than the one where you submitted your application prevents us from formally verifying your application and checking all the necessary documents, and consequently it will not be possible to obtain a stamp in your passport.
If you are staying in Poland based on a temporary residence and work permit, issued under employment with an Employer with whom you no longer work, you should report this information in writing to the office. You will find the template HERE.
If the last day of validity of your visa falls within the period of an epidemic emergency or a state of epidemic announced due to SARS-CoV-2 infection, the period of validity of this visa and the declaration shall be extended by law until the 30th day following the date of cancellation of the epidemic emergency or epidemic state (the last state that was in force).
cont. question. What does the expression "in such a situation a foreigner may take advantage of conditional legal residence and submit an application for a residence permit in an extended period" mean?
A change in the conditions of planned employment of a foreigner in the course of the proceedings for temporary residence and work means that the employer should fill in a new Annex 1 to the application for temporary residence and work. The new Annex no. 1 should be submitted to the office and will be included in the ongoing proceedings. If the planned income of the foreigner, declared in the annex, is still sufficient to cover his/her and his/her family's subsistence costs and meets the other conditions for granting the permit - he/she may receive a positive decision.
