Latest upcoming changes to facilitate work permits for foreigners

The Ministry presented the draft and launched public consultations about the proposal. The draft extends the catalogue of professions in which the work permit is issued by the Voivode, without the need to obtain information from lower level authorities on whether the employment needs could be met locally labour market (so called labor market test).

The new list of professions among others includes:
– System analyst (code no. 2511)
– IT systems developer (code no. 2512)
– Web and multimedia systems designer (code no. 2513)
– Apps designers (code no. 2514)
– Data administrators and designers (code no. 2521)

In order to implement the new regulation on 1st of July the Ministry shortened the time for public consultations. We kindly ask you for your opinion about the draft, especially when it comes to the professions’ catalogue – we already have received signals from our members that it probably does not meet all your needs and the list should be wider.

Please find the draft HERE and please share your opinion by the May 17th.

If you have any questions or proposals please do not hesitate to contact Jolanta Jaworska (jolanta.jaworska@pl.ibm.com) or Wioletta Bobryk (wioletta.bobryk@absl.pl).
