Support for UK nationals living in Poland


The International Organization for Migration (IOM), the UN Agency, offers support to UK nationals in Poland needing extra assistance in applying for residence documentation. UK nationals and their family members residing in Poland before 31st December 2020 must take some steps to secure documents which ensure that their right to stay is protected. IOM offers up-to-date and reliable information on requirements and procedures, as well as support to those facing specific challenges, such as people with disabilities, those grappling with chronic illnesses, language and literacy barriers, difficulties in accessing technology, and living in remote areas.

IOM services include:

  • providing up-to-date information,
  • offering legal advice,
  • helping with the preparation of the required documents and during the submission of applications.

The project is implemented in cooperation with the British Embassy in Poland and supported by the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office through the UK National Support Fund (UKNSF). It will continue until the 30th of November 2021. From the 1st of October no new cases will be accepted. However, IOM will continue to provide assistance for the UK nationals who contacted IOM before the 30st of September 2021 until the end of the project.

IOM, the UN Migration Agency, has supported migrants all over the world for 70 years. IOM office in Poland conducts activities in assisting migrants, supporting regulated migration and integration of migrants, counter-trafficking, preventing unregulated migration, and raising migration awareness. IOM cooperates with a number of institutions and organizations, including government and local administrative institutions, non-governmental organizations, the private sector, and migrant organizations.
