Poland is part of the European Union. A temporary residence in Poland allows the candidate to travel freely across the EU Schengen countries and the very same goes for relocating to any of the Schengen countries without any permission. A Residence Permit in Poland allows the candidate and their family the ability to move anywhere in the EU region freely.
Not just that, it also gives the opportunity to create a living, business, and purchase property in Poland and the EU.
One must note that they cannot apply for their work permit on their own as they do not have the authority to do so. This is because it should be applied by the potential employer. The applicant has no control over the application so it is important that the employer does it in the right manner.
