For How Long Is a Single Permit Issued?
A temporary residence and work permits are granted for a period necessary to achieve the purpose of the foreigner’s stay in the territory of Poland of over 3 months up to 3 years, with the possibility to apply for further permits.
Unlike a work permit, if a foreigner wishes to extend a temporary residence and work permit, they should reapply for such a permit. There is no separate application for permit extension.
