Trainees and volunteers
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 prove having sufficient funds to cover:
– costs of living in Poland (PLN 701 x 12 months = PLN 8,412)
– 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.
