Invitation for a foreigner – basic characteristics
The invitation document for a foreigner confirms that the inviting person has adequate financial resources and is able to cover the costs of stay (including food, accommodation) on Polish territory. Based on the invitation, you can also go through border control and apply for a visa. Remember that the invitation does not entitle you to start working in Poland.
The validity of the document is determined by the inviting person, but it cannot be longer than 1 year.
The procedure for issuing an invitation requires providing the Voivodeship Office with a set of documents, including confirmation of having the necessary financial resources and legal title to the dwelling.
Who can invite a foreigner?
An invitation for a foreigner can only be issued by a person who meets strictly specified conditions. Therefore, the invitation can be issued by:
