Advantages and disadvantages of a permanent residence in Poland

Life is multifaceted and unpredictable. The modern world, in which the precise boundaries between countries are gradually eroding, attracts the unknown. And many of our compatriots decide on an important step - to move to live in another country. One of the most popular on this list is Poland. But is it so easy, in fact, to carry out the relocation for permanent residence, and what is needed for this, we will tell further.

A country with a bright future

After the collapse of the Soviet Union, Poland began to actively implement reforms relating to all spheres of "the life of the state", thus bringing the country to a new level. And so, in 2004, she became a member of the EU. After that, Poland really became completely different - smooth roads, developed economy, high-quality education and promising work.

Gradually, people from neighboring countries - Ukraine, Belarus and Russia began to come here for work, later staying on permanent residence.

There are a lot of advantages of living here:

  1. Today Poland is considered one of the most favorable for life. In terms of economic development, it ranks 7th among the rest of the EU countries. In addition, about 90% of indigenous people are completely satisfied with their standard of living, and can count on the required social benefits, pensions and benefits (high level of social protection).
  2. Security is also an important factor - the level of violent crime is the lowest in all of Europe.
  3. One of the easiest ways to move to Poland is through education. It takes a minimum of effort and waste. And if you have Polish roots, then having mastered the language, you can quickly get a Polish card.
  4. Problems with the language of visitors almost never happens. It has common roots with Russian, so it will be easy to learn it. A common culture will help you adapt more quickly in an unfamiliar place.
  5. Products are available to all segments of the population, since the level of wages and food prices is perfectly balanced in the country. Even those who receive small salaries can afford meat, fish, basic cereals, vegetables and fruits, that is, everything necessary. By the way, their quality is strictly checked by special bodies.
  6. Even if you have not yet received citizenship, but you are officially working and paying taxes, you can count on retirement in Poland if the required number of years of work “comes through” in the documents.
  7. Cars are no longer a luxury here. For only 400-500 euros you can buy an old car on the go.
  8. Education in higher educational institutions is not much more expensive than in Russia, but the diploma that is obtained makes it possible to get a job in any country of the European Union without any problems.
  9. And, finally, the climate in Poland is milder, it is not too hot in summer, and in winter the temperature does not fall too low.

But living in this European country has its drawbacks:

  1. Despite the fact that the Poles are satisfied with their standard of living, it is still somewhat lower than in other European countries.
  2. Unfortunately, the bureaucracy also continues to flourish, as in many other powers.
  3. Labor immigration is a very difficult process, because your potential employer will have to explain and prove for a long time that there are no contenders and applicants for this vacancy among the indigenous population.
  4. Before you go for permanent residence, do not forget to learn the language, to find a well-paid job without it is almost impossible.
  5. Expensive housing.Foreigners often have to rent housing, at least for the first time. It will cost not cheap - the average price of renting an apartment is 500-1000 euros. And by local standards, this is the average salary. A separate room in an apartment with roommates or landlords will cost 200-300 euros. Cheaper option - housing provided by the employer, but the conditions there, of course, will not be the best.

Some more useful information.

How many people, so many opinions. Every compatriot traveling to Poland will tell you his story of success or failure. But, as you know, who does not risk, he does not drink champagne. And if you still decided to emigrate, it is important to know about a few more important things:

  1. A residence permit gives the right to work, study and even do business in Poland. It also allows you to acquire movable and immovable property. A residence permit is the first step to obtain permanent residence. By law, the validity of such a document is limited to 3 months.
  2. For those who decided to stay, the real estate will have to spend about 100 thousand euros for 2-room apartments, but a private house surrounded by nature will cost 200-250 thousand euros.
  3. As for the work, if you are ready to choose one of the working specialties, there will be no end of proposals. The average salary per hour builder, welder, locksmith - 10-15 zł (180-280 rubles). But there is also an informal labor market, you can get money for working there twice or even three times more, but there are no guarantees that you will not be "thrown".

Also it is worth considering that those who have a special education receive 30-40% more. The highest paid spheres are industry and construction, but in the field of agriculture and the provision of personal services you do not earn much.

Despite the previous hostility of the Poles to visiting migrants, now the situation has radically changed. Increasing tolerance allows indigenous and newcomers to live in peace and harmony. A new wave of emigration from Russia has already “covered” Poland, and each of the visitors hopes for success. But for this, only desire is not enough, sometimes titanic efforts are needed, but the result is achievable.
