Can foreign citizens get a residence permit if they buy an apartment in Poland?
According to Polish law, the purchase of real estate in this country doesn’t allow foreigners to obtain a residence permit. At the same time, the very fact of having your own flat in Poland can serve as a strong argument for obtaining a residence permit in the future. First of all, this applies to businessmen, students and specialists working in the country under an official contract. When obtaining a residence permit, they will be able to register in their own housing.
