Amnesty for foreigners
The amnesty for aliens who are illegally staying in Poland comes into effect on 1 January 2012. Foreigners who want their stay to be legalized will have to submit applications to the competent voivode. Applications may be submitted during a period of six months. Amnesty will be granted for a period of 2 years.

Who may apply for amnesty?
Amnesty may be applied for by the foreigners who stay in Poland:

  • continuously* at least since 20 December 2007 and whose stay is considered illegal on the date of entry into force of this Act i.e. on 1 January 2012

Continuously means that any interval in the foreigner's stay in Poland has not exceeded 6 months and the total length of these intervals has not exceeded 10 months during the period considered, unless the interval was due to the exercise of professional duties or work outside the territory of the Republic of Poland (on the basis of an agreement with an employer whose head office is located on the territory of the Republic of Poland), or accompanying a spouse performing his/her professional duties or work in the conditions referred to above, or when it was due to medical treatment.

and foreigners who reside in Poland:

  • continuously at least since 1 January 2010, who have been given the final decision refusing refugee status prior to that date, including the expulsion decision and whose stay in Poland is considered illegal on the date of entry into force of this Act;

  • for whom the procedure to grant the refugee status, initiated due to a subsequent application, was ongoing on 1 January 2010.



For how long does a foreigner legalise their stay
The stay will be legalized in the form of a residence permit for a fixed period of time, i.e. for 2 years. During that time a foreigner may take up employment under a contract of employment without a permit and legitimise their further stay in Poland. The proceedings involving such cases are dealt with by voivodes and the Head of the Office for Foreigners.
When you have to apply for amnesty
Foreigners should submit applications to legalise their stay in Poland within 6 months from the date of entry into force of the Act, i.e. between 1 January 2012 and 2 July 2012.

Applications will be accepted between 1 January 2012 and 2 July 2012.
Where can you apply for amnesty?

From 1 January 2012 on, to legalise their stay the illegal foreigners will have to submit applications to the voivode competent for their place of residence. Foreigners’ applications for the legalisation of their stay must be submitted (personally or by mail) to a branch or division for foreigners of the Office of the Voivode competent for the place of their stay.
