I am a British citizen. What should I do after the United Kingdom leaves the European Union? How can I extend or legalise my stay in Poland?

If you are a BENEFICIARY OF THE WITHDRAWAL AGREEMENT, you have time until the end of 2021 to submit the relevant documents to the Lower Silesian Voivodeship Office, depending on your situation.

Example 1. I have been in Poland before 31 December 2020 for at least five years, and I can prove the continuity of my stay.

–> Apply for a document confirming the right of permanent residence of a citizen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

Example 2. I already have a valid certificate of registration of EU citizen residence or a document confirming an EU citizen’s right of permanent residence.

–> Apply for a new certificate of registration of residence or the replacement/issue of a new document confirming the right of permanent residence.

Example 3. I stayed in Poland before 31 December 2020, and I have not yet applied for a certificate of registration of residence. I intend to stay in Poland for over 90 days.

–> Apply for registration of residence of a citizen of the United Kingdom no later than 31 December 2021.

If you are NOT a BENEFICIARY OF THE WITHDRAWAL AGREEMENT:

Example 4. I came to Poland after 31 December 2020, and I intend to stay in Poland for more than 90 days.

–>  Submit an application for a temporary residence permit based on the Act on Foreigners before the end of the 90-day stay under the visa-free traffic in Poland.
