New Polish Visa requirement
If you are on your way to get Polish citizenship, or want o get a Polish citizenship as an entry for the EU, then there is a new requirement you should be aware of.
If you want to stay in Poland as you are waiting for a Permanent visa you need twenty-five Euros a day for every day of your temporary visa. This is a new law about three weeks ago.
The purpose of this new EU Visa requirement
The point of this rule is twofold. First, they want to make sure you can live in Poland without becoming dependent on your host EU country, that is Poland.
You are a guest and you are not a citizen and should not expect hard working people to support you just because. Therefore this new Polish visa rule is very reasonable. I think it takes more than twenty-five Euros a day to live in Poland so it is a very low barrier to entry.
When I applied for my visa for Poland the police reviewed my financial records and so did the city offices. Now they have just made it more formal. So it is not against anyone, it is just so you will not fall into trouble when you are in a foreign country in the EU.
The second thing this does is cut down on the number of increasing false marriages to get a visa for Poland. One-quarter to one-half of the marriages in Poland to foreigners are fake, with the sole purpose of getting an EU citizenship.
This is very wrong. People use the system and Poland is making it harder and illegal to do so. If you get caught in some agreement, even if it simply verbal, you could go to prison. And I think you should.
The foreigner pays some Polish girl ten thousand dollars and she get married he get citizenship and he is off to London. The Polish girl has money they guy has a EU visa then and EU citizenship.
This is very unfair and very illegal.
Problem with false Polish visas
My parents were technically Polish, my family is Polish ( I am married) I have lived in Poland for about six years, I speak Polish and have worked legally in Poland. To get a Polish citizenship it took me about six year.. This was the fast track because my blood is Polish and under Polish law I am technically Polish, just not confirmed.
One guy from Peru it took him nineteen years. Therefore, the Polish courts look at every case carefully. If you are from Ukraine and married to a Polish citizen I think this is not a big deal as Poland and Ukraine share a similar history.
But if you are from Africa or the Middle East they will view your case with care because although some of these guys are sincere, many just want to escape their own countries for some reason. I have been to Africa and the Middle East and it is beautiful, so I do not understand it.
In fact, many Polish girls are abandoned by their new husbands once they get a Polish visa. And the Polish girl can not get remarried as the guy is no where to be found for a Polish civil law divorce.
I think this is funny and should teach Polish girls not to enter into such agreements based on money. Marriage is for love.
New Polish visa law is good
I think this law is good to require on the Polish visa application twenty-five Euros a day. It should be more. If you are staying in Poland for One hundred days this means two thousand five hundred Euros you have to prove.
Student Visa for Poland
Student visas of course is different. They have different rules, laws and regulations. The above rule is connected to those who want to get a “visa for Poland” through a civil marriage agreement or contract.
If you have question about this issue or citizenship for the EU just ask. I am not an expert or a lawyer but I might know just enough to point you in the right direction.
