Permanent residence registration

Permanent residence registration shall be made in the municipal office or in the county office competent as for the foreigner’s place of residence. The residence registration is notified by filing a special form of registering a permanent residence. The said form shall, inter alia, confirm the fact of the foreigner’s residence in the dwelling premises, made by its owner or other entity having the legal title to the property. The confirmation should take place in the form of a legible signature with date when the latter was put. This applies to the situations when a foreigner uses a flat that belongs to another person.

The following documents shall be provided in the case of a permanent residence registration:

• a valid travel document (passport), or – in the case of the EU citizen – another valid document confirming the identity and citizenship;

• a document that forms the basis of legal residence on the Polish territory (e.g. residence card granted in connection with the issued settlement permit or a residence permit for a long-term EC resident, the document confirming the permanent residence of the EU national, the permanent residence card of a family member of the EU national) – for more information about a settlement permit or a residence permit for a long-term EC resident, see section Legalization of the residence in Poland – non-EU nationals; the details on the certificate that confirms the right of a permanent residence of the EU national and the permanent residence card of a family member of the EU national are available in the section Legalization of the residence in Poland – EU nationals);

• for an inspection – a document confirming the owner’s or tenant’s legal title to the property (e.g., a deed, rental agreement, etc.).
