Im a Filipina. My boyfriend is a Polish citizen. We're getting married next year first few months. He lives in Ireland for 10years and counting (he's not an Ireland citizen) , and we will live in Ireland together-soon. Now, where he can get his Legal Capacity? We dont have Polish Embassy here in Phils.

I am applying Visa and change last name (here in Phils) -His last three letters of his last name is "....SKI". Which last name am gonna use? Is it "....SKI" or am gonna use "......SKA"?

Am I getting a Poland Visa or Ireland Visa? Where to get Visa? What are the requirements?

Please help me guys! Looking forward for your answers here.

Using correct Surname
Poland has a law in using surname. For women we need to use SKA at the end but remember if you are applying your documents to our embassy (Philippine Embassy) might as well use our traditional surname. If your husband surname ending SKI then use it. I just follow my husband surname with correct spelling and no question. WE ARE FILIPINO FOLLOW OUR RULES. :)

My case is different. My husband is pure Polish but lived in USA. So our case is completely different.

Try to go to Fort Santiago, Manila there is an old Polish Embassy and they will direct you where to go. My husband and I went there just to visit.

A note to Miss Love
Your boyfriend needs to contact his local Civic Office and obtain relevant documents.
I strongly suggest to have these documents completed and translated into English by a certified translator in Poland.

I do not think there will be one in the Philippines!

But firstly, he needs to contact Philippine Republic's Embassy in Warsaw or London and request information about paper work required for a marriage.
Philippine Embassies in varions countries provide this information on their websites.

There is no Polish Embamssy in the Philippines.
The closes one is in Kuala Lumpur.

A note to Miss Chit
There is no border control between EU countries and no visa is required for travel between UK and Poland.

Best time to visit Poland- September -October, still not very cold.
Visit Krakow, Wroclaw, make dash to Prague in Czech Republic.

Gdansk,Malbork are interesting too.

Working in Poland- a general observation
I wish to make this observation directed at those people who plan to work in Poland.
I DISCOURAGE you from doing that. Already several millions of young Polish people left Poland for a better life abroad.
Very often workers in Poland are abused by their employers and often the rate of pay is in the order of 5-8 zloty per our. We have many "working poor" and people without work at all.

Try Austria, Germany, Belgium or Scandinavia.

A note to Mrs Crystal Gajewska
I am not sure if my my answer is not too late.
Your correct Polish family name will be GAJEWSKA.
I am disappointed that nobody provided you with a correct advice.
It is the same structure like, for example doktor (male)
and doktora ( female) in Tagalog,or maestro and maestra.
In both languages we often find common structures, based on Latin/ Spanish.

I plan to visit this website more oftem and answer some questions.

Cuttently I spend mu second month in the Visayas in Baybay, a small place between Dipolog and Ipil.
Unfortunately due to local problems and tensions, my movement is limited.
Later this month T plan to visit Dumaguete and Iloilo.
I very much enjoy the gentle nature of the Pinoys.
This is my third visit here, thanks to Mrs Bonnie, my neighbour in Austarlia.
