Foreign job-seekers in Poland must have return fare

Under draft acts authored by the Interior Ministry foreign job-seekers, business start-uppers and students in Poland will have to have from PLN 200 to 2.500 (EUR 47 - 581) for their return trip or transit to a third country.

Foreigners with families in Poland will also have to display similar amounts for each of their family members.

The specific quota foreigners must have at their disposal will depend on whether whether they arrived in Poland from a neighbouring country, another EU country, an EFTA-affiliated country (or Switzerland), or a country not included in the above categories.

According to the Interior Ministry the new regulations will not affect the Polish small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) market.
