One of the most frustrating tasks when you move to a new country is figuring out which government office to visit for what. Let us help you make it a bit easier.
In our article about applying for a Residency Permit, we have given more details about specific departments, but here we wanted to share a list of all government offices and departments related to expatriates. This website maintained by the Pomeranian Vovoidship in Gdańsk is an exhaustive list of all office related to foreigners in the Tricity. Along with that they have a list of other related departments too. The best part is that this list is constantly updated, so you will always have the latest information at hand.
A regular complaint that a lot of expatriates have is that they have no way of knowing the latest laws and laws seem to change almost every day! We thought why not put together a few up-to-date sources of informations that you can refer to when needed. These are a mix of government and private websites with a wealth of information that can help guide you where needed.
- [Just Ask Poland]: A private website which updates foreigners about the latest laws and also has an option where you can ask a question and they will find you an answer.
- Migrant Info: A government website detailing all the information and processes you need to follow to migrate to Poland, including information for employers and employees.
- Department for Immigration Cases: A government website offering programs, legal advice and other information related to expatriates, migrants and refugees.
