In Poland there is an obligation, for both Poles and foreigners, to have their address here registered if their stay exceeds 14 days period. We call it ZAMELDOWANIE. In order to fulfill that obligation you have to visit district office (pol. urząd dzielnicy) competent for your place of residence with:
|EU citizen||Non-EU citizen|
|rental agreement||rental agreement|
|ID from home country||passport|
|visa or residence card|
At the office you will have to fill in and submit an application form and receive confirmation of your registration. Remember that if your stay exceeds 14 days but is shorter than 30 days you only need to register your stay verbally.
If you do not have a PESEL number and you are registering your stay for more than 30 days, district office should give you one. Click here in order to learn more about PESEL.

Changing your address, deregistration and leaving Poland
When leaving Poland or changing your address you have to notify the office. This will result in the deletion of temporary residence. Check how to do it:
When and where to submit an application?
You ought to do that at latest the last day before leaving you current address. You can do it in the same office that you have registered at the beginning. You’ll need to have a valid document (ID or passport) with yourself.
Please find the form that you should submit in the office:
- Notification of leaving the territory of the Republic of Poland here
- Notification of a change of temporary residence here
The application is free of charge.
