Starting on 1 January 2019, a new subtype of temporary residence and work permit was introduced, allowing work in professions ‘desired for the Polish economy’.  The Ministry of Work will provide a list of those professions. 

Obtaining the new permit will be easier than before, as the employer will not be required to prove inability to satisfy its staffing needs on the local labour market. It will also give foreign nationals faster access to a permanent residence permit.
