Temporary residence permit is a document that certifies the identity of a foreigner during his or her stay in Poland. This document (together with a valid travel document, such as a passport) entitles the holder to cross the Polish border multiple times without the need for a visa, as well as to enter and stay in other Schengen countries for a period not exceeding 90 days within 180 days.
A foreigner planning to stay in Poland for more than 3 months may apply for a temporary residence permit. A temporary residence permit is granted for a maximum period of 3 years. However, the period of validity of the permit may be shorter, if the basis for the application for this permit indicates that a shorter stay is justified.
Who can obtain a temporary residence card:

• Foreigner working in Poland on the basis of a long-term contract.
• Foreigner who performs work that requires a high degree of skill.
• Full-time student.
• Foreigner studying Polish language in Poland.
• Husband or wife of a citizen of Poland.
• Husband or wife of a citizen of another state whose permanent place of residence is Poland.
• Foreigner engaged in business in Poland.
The temporary residence permit offers a number of advantages, in particular:

• Multiple crossing of the Polish border without the need to open a visa.
• Grounds for a legal stay of up to 3 years.
• Entering and staying in the Schengen countries.
• Acquisition of real estate in Poland without additional permits.
• Getting credit from Polish banks, including mortgages.
• Ability to apply in Poland for visas to non-Schengen countries.

If the application for a temporary residence permit (zezwolenie na pobyt czasowy) was submitted during the foreigner's legal stay and it contained no formal defects or formal defects were corrected in time, the voivode puts a stamp in the foreigner's travel document confirming the application. A foreigner's stay is considered legal from the moment of application until the date on which the decision to issue a temporary residence permit becomes final.
NOTE: A stamp in a travel document does not give a foreigner the right to travel in other Schengen countries, while a foreigner can go to the country of origin, but to return to Poland he or she must obtain a visa, if he or she comes from a country to which requirements apply.
    The procedure for legalization of temporary residence takes place at the Voivodeship Office - Foreigners
    Department. The application for temporary residence permit should be submitted to the Voivodship Office corresponding to the place of residence of the foreigner, e.g. if the foreigner resides in Warsaw, the application should be submitted to the Mazowieckie Voivodship Office.
