DZP's media centre.
Download the 2010 version of Poland. A place to live and work. This brochure is intended as a guide to help you acclimatize in Poland and to understand both different social and cultural conditions as well as legal and administrative regulations.
It contains information that will give you basic knowledge of immigration and legal requirements, and the procedures to obtain a Polish driving license and work permit. In this guide you will also find information about Poland, a country located in the heart of Europe with enormous economic potential, successfully reformed to become an excellent place for business and corporate development. A milder reaction to the effects of the global crisis as compared to other European countries, optimistic forecasts of a rise in GNP and a fall in inflation in 2009 and 2010, membership of international organizations such as the EU, NATO, and OECD confirming the credibility of our country, are a guarantee of good investments in Poland.
This publication was drawn up by the law firm Domański Zakrzewski Palinka in cooperation with the Polish Information and Foreign Investment Agency. We hope that you will find it helpful and we trust that the information it contains will make functioning in Poland easier for you and help you live and work in Poland.
