In Poland there is an obligation, for both Poles and foreigners, to have their address here registered if their stay exceeds 30 days period (for non-EU citizens) or 3 months (for EU citizens). 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.
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.
If you are a citizen of a EU Member State, an EFTA country or Switzerland or a family member of such a foreigner – you have 30 days to report a new place of residence (counting from the date of arrival to this place). If you are a citizen of another country – you have 4 days to register.
