Work in Poland: The country to change employment rules for foreigners starting from 2018

Work in Poland will be more regulated for foreigners. Marzanna Skoczek, the Director of District Department of Labor in Grojec, claimed that, starting from January 2018, new rules on the employment will come into force.

The declaration on the intention to hire a foreigner that is issued for the employer for free will be replaced with the paid permission for seasonaljobs, particularly the crop farming, gardening, tourist and gastronomic spheres.

The employer will have to apply for permission to hire foreigner who is not in Poland to perform seasonal jobs. The foreigner will be able to obtain visa to Poland on the basis of this permission. The foreigners with the biometric passports can enter Poland without a visa. The employer is obliged to register such worker at the Labor Department.
