I work based on “declaration,” how is it legal to continue working after six months?

The term of performance of works based on the declaration of entrusting work to a foreigner (declaration) cannot exceed six months within 12 months. If you have been working for six months, you will only be able to get the next declaration after six months.

IMPORTANT! Due to the epidemiological situation, the laws allow you to work for the same employer without obtaining a new declaration or work permits until the end of the 30th day after abolishing the epidemic threat or the state of the epidemic.

In non-epidemic settings, if you intend to continue working for the same employer, he or she can apply for a work permit, or you can apply for a temporary residence permit and work in the Lower Silesian Voivodeship Office in person. Your employment will be legal until the permit is issued if you meet the following conditions:

  • you will work based on declaration under the employment contract without breaks for at least three months before applying for a work permit or a temporary residence permit and work;
  • your employer will apply for a work permit, or you will personally apply for a temporary residence permit and work before the deadline specified in the declaration;
  • after obtaining a permit, you will continue to work on terms not worse than in the declaration (position and salary).

Remember that the working days on the declaration in different employers are summed up. And a change of employer is always connected with the issuing of a new declaration or work permit.

The declaration of entrusting work to a foreigner is a document that gives the right to work in Poland to citizens of Armenia, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, Russia, and Ukraine. The work to be performed by the foreigner does not apply to seasonal work.
