Facts & Stats

To hire a foreign national in Poland, you need to ensure that they obtain a work permit. This means they must be employed by a Polish entity and go through the lengthy immigration process. Our Employer of Record (EOR) model can simplify this process. We take on all liabilities associated with hiring the employee, sponsor their visa, and handle the paperwork for their work permit application.
