Poland is a country that is part of the European Union. Receiving temporary residence in Poland allows you to travel freely throughout the EU Schengen countries, and the same goes for relocating to any Schengen country without any permits. Safe to say, the acquisition of a residence permit in Poland will allow you and your family the ability to move across the EU without any restrictions.
Not only that, it will also give you the opportunity to live, create a business and buy property in Poland and in the EU.
