A person applying for a permit for this type of residence in Poland should demonstrate that he/she has sufficient financial means to support himself/herself and his/her family members in Poland.
From 1 October 2018, the minimum amount is at least PLN 528 net per person in a family or PLN 701 net in the case of a single householder.
In this case, it is necessary to demonstrate having sufficient funds to cover:
– accomodation costs, including fixed utility charges, energy, gas, water, sewage and refuse collection charges (e.g. a tenancy agreement and the last gas, electricity and administrative rent bill, or a certificate from the student accommodation confirming the level of charges) as well as documents proving possession of sufficient financial resources to cover the costs
– costs of living in Poland (PLN 701 x 15 months = PLN 10,515)
– costs of education (tuition fees for the academic year and summer semester of the following year)
– costs of return travel to the country of residence (PLN 200 in the case of a country neighbouring Poland, PLN 500 in the case of the European Union, PLN 2,500 in the case of a country outside the European Union)
A document confirming the possession of sufficient financial means is most often a bank statement, but it may also be a traveller’s cheque, a certificate confirming the amount of limit on a credit card, a document confirming the granting of a domestic or foreign scholarship with the indication of the period and amount of benefit.
Furthermore, it is necessary to attach:
– a certificate from the university stating the amount of tuition fees for the entire academic year and the winter semester of the following year
– proof of payment of tuition fees, indicating the date of payment of tuition fees or a part thereof (in the case of commencement or continuation of paid studies).
