End of Covid in Poland. Be ready!

Latest news
In what can only be described as a mix of irony and sadness, we at Residence Angels have an important update for our international community. Despite the previous deadline for document extension being set for August 24, 2023, the official end of the COVID-19 pandemic was retroactively declared as July 31, 2023. This announcement has significant implications for foreigners whose visas, temporary residence cards (TRCs), biometric entries, and work permits expired between March 14, 2020, and July 31, 2023.

Critical Deadline: July 31, 2023

It is crucial for individuals in this category to apply for a renewal of their respective documents no later than July 30, 2023. This narrow window of opportunity necessitates immediate action to ensure legal status and avoid complications. We urge everyone to check their stay permits and inform their friends and colleagues who might be in a similar situation.

Anticipated Immigration System Overload

Given this sudden and retrospective change, we are bracing for a significant strain on the immigration system. The sheer volume of applications expected in this short period is likely to lead to delays and an overloaded bureaucracy. We anticipate that the effects of this influx could extend until November, if not longer.
