Employment of foreigners

Polish employers are increasingly facing challenges related to opening up the domestic labor market to foreigners. Many industries are struggling with a shortage of qualified staff, yet fear foreign recruitment and ask themselves, “how to employ a foreigner?”. Our offer fully meets the needs of entrepreneurs who decide to expand their team with people from other countries.


Many entrepreneurs ask themselves how to employ a foreigner. The answer to this question depends on many factors. The key issue is the origin of the candidate. The nationality determines how the relocation procedure of the foreigner to Poland will proceed.

Initially, it is necessary to determine whether the foreigner is a citizen of a European Union country or a so-called third country under migration law. If the employment concerns a non-EU foreigner, it necessitates initiating an administrative procedure to obtain documents allowing the employment of the foreigner.

The next important step in verification is confirming the candidate’s current country of residence, and consequently, determining whether there is a requirement to have a visa authorizing entry into the Republic of Poland.

We process all orders from our clients by starting with a thorough and detailed verification of the candidate’s documentation.  Thus, we confirm whether or not there are legal grounds to use a given path of legalization. 


After verifying the status of a given candidate, our team of immigration specialists prepares a relocation plan, determining the most convenient and fastest way to legally employ the foreigner.

The basic document that allows the employment of non-EU foreigners is the work permit. There are different types of work permits, depending on the form in which the employer wants to employ the foreigner. For the employer who has found a suitable employee from a third country, a work permit will be the most appropriate type of document.

There are also other special types of documents for foreigners, which make it possible to employ a foreigner. These include the declaration of entrusting work to a foreigner or specific types of visas.

Mobirel specialists will estimate for you at the initial stage of the foreigner recruitment process which of the employment legalization documents will be the most practical and suitable for a particular case. Mobirel specialist will also estimate when the employment of the foreigner will be able to take place, meaning when the required administrative proceedings will be completed.
