A note to MIss Lade
Please scan my previous messages on this website
I strongly suspect that the embassy of the Netherlands in Maynila is able to issue visas on behalf of Polish government. They should be more helpful than embassy in Kuala Lumpur.

Hi, thank you for responding :)
I called the consulate in Manila but got no info and I asked the embassy in Kuala Lumpur and their only response is I have to apply for national visa, no info about the requirements for that type of visa. Do you know what are the requirements for National Visa?
Thank you

Working in Poland- a general observation
On average, income in Poland is low and I would DISCOURAGE
seeking work permit/visa into Poland.
I would suggest instead to seek employment in other European countries especially in the view or recent tragic treatment of OFW's in Middle East
Please read my earlier postings on this site.

A note to Miss Lade
I strongly suggest to make serious preparations before resuming a study tour.
Do you have some plans for studies and where?
About visa I suggest to contact locally the honorary consulate in Maynila and also embassy in Kuala Lumpur.
From my and other's experience they are not very responsive.
Let me know if they responded to your note.
Below are Honorary Consulate details.

A good Au-Pair agency for European countries
I suggest to contact them directly....
Do a web search for other agencies...
You may be wasting your time by arranging everything youself....

Further details to Miss Darlene
Work on the territory of the Republic of Poland


your future employer moves for a work permit, you cannot apply for a work permit in Poland on your own,
a work permit should be sent to you by your employer so that you can apply for a visa giving you the right to work.

Documents required to enter the territory of Poland:

1. a valid travel document,

2. a valid visa (if you want to work legally, you must obtain a visa giving you the right to work),

3. a document which confirms that you have health insurance,

4. money or a certificate confirming that you have it (e.g. a current certificate from a bank). If you cross the border based on a visa with the right to work, you do not have to present documents reflecting your financial situation.

At all times keep documents on you certifying your identity, legal stay and work (a copy of a work permit), in case you are controlled by the Police or the Border Guard.

If you do not have any of them or if they are invalid, you may even be expelled from Poland.


you cannot start work before the date shown in the permit,
a work permit is given with regard to one employer, to the particular position and to the period shown in the permit, under the conditions defined in the permit,
your employer must move for an extension of a work permit not later than 30 days before the end of the period for which the permit has been given,
if you want to change your employer or take up a different kind of job, your new employer must move for a new permit to an appropriate Voivode (regional/voivodship office),
if you did not sign a contract before starting work, demand the contract not later than on the day of commencing work,
a contract must be in accordance with a work permit,

The obligation of an employer:

conclude contracts with you (including an employment contract) in a language which you understand,
conduct trainings (including an occupational health and safety training) in a language which you understand,
provide you with a copy of an extension of a work permit or of a new permit,
pay for you, on a regular basis, contributions and taxes required by the law.

The obligations of an employee (within the employment relationship):

regular remuneration paid within the agreed period (not lower than that shown in a work
permit and concluded contract),
protection against discrimination and exploitation,
rest after work, holidays and a leave,
work in safe and hygienic conditions,
choose a place of residence,
a certificate from your employer after leaving work.
