Who has the right to a free employment visa?
The only case of a conditionally free visa is getting the Pole’s Card. With help of the Pole‘s Card, any type of permissions in the RP can be issued, including working permission. In this case, only the costs of the Centre’s services, insurance etc. will have to be paid.
Please note that it is a question of obtaining exclusively of a national visa. However, it is possible to stay in the EU countries under the D type permit without employment but for a limited period.
How much does an employment visa to Poland cost?
If you read the process of issuing an employment visa carefully, you can notice that getting a voivodeship invitation is much more difficult. It takes more time and requires rather specific documents. The price of a Polish employment visa of category D may differ.
The total cost of an employment visa to Poland for Ukrainians includes:
- visa application (or consular) fee;
- visa centre services;
- compulsory costs when collecting documents:
- photo (photo requirements for visas are described here).
- Possible additional costs ( optional):
- Courier delivery of documents;
- SMS notification;
- Extra charge for urgency;
If you need an employment visa to Poland, the price depends on a large number of facts including the country for obtaining a visa. So, for example, citizens of Ukraine do not pay state fees on this type of permits, and for citizens of Belarus urgent issue of visa is not available. However, this does not release one from other costs.
In Ukraine, filing of documents in any PPVA on the territory of Ukraine takes place only by appointment and after payment of the visa fee. You do not need to make an appointment in advance in order to get the passport or consultation. However, each visa centre serves a limited number of regions of applicants (place of registration, work or study).
Similar systems are extended to other Consular Districts. In addition, prices for some additional services in a specific PPVA may vary slightly – it is possible to know in detail how much it costs to issue an employment visa to Poland at the consulting centre.
To confirm the registration, it is enough to have a passport that is included in the obligatory package of documents for any visa. However, in cases of employment or study not at the place of residence, a document evidencing this fact (a certificate from a job or educational institution) must be provided.
Here are some more government fees for visas (in national currencies) for citizens of some other countries:

Costs of intermediaries
The price of an employment Polish visa through intermediary offices depends on the type of permission required. Since the intermediary takes on the main work on collection of documents, the price of services differs significantly.
At the same time, the cost of the Polish employment visa, as a rule, already includes visa application fee, service fees, insurance and some other expenses.
It is necessary to know exactly that the applicant must visit PPVA in person! This service can not be realized by the intermediary. In case of such proposals, it is worth thinking about the integrity of the firm.
An employment visa is a necessary permit for legal labour in Poland. It will not only allow you to work without violation the laws, but also ensure the observance of rights that cannot be defended in case of illegal employment.
