How to get European permanent residence
Time is money. That’s why entrepreneurs and ordinary people from over the world aspire to find the fastest permanent residence in Europe. It’s not so great to live in the country for many years, settle there and finally to find out that this country doesn’t want to see you as its citizen.
Some countries provide a simplified program for residence permit obtaining, CIP (citizenship by investment program) or RIP (residency by investment program), and it implies the purchasing of the property in that country. But it will cost from 500,000 EUR, and a common man with average incomes can’t afford such investment.
We advise you to take a closer look at some of not so popular EU members and discover Poland as one of the cheapest and most comfortable countries for relocation to Europe.
Cheapest permanent residency in Europe
If you attempted to find any information about how to get EU permanent residence, you may know that every EU country has its own residency rules, and Poland has the most affordable conditions for permanent residence obtaining. In the same time, Poland is not inviting everybody to its flourishing land. You have to work hard and be useful for the country to live there and gain permanent residence after a while.
So, how to get a permanent resident card in Europe? There are three main methods of residency gaining:
- by family ties: if you have parents or grandparents from some countries such as Poland, Italy or Hungary, you may apply for permanent residence in these countries. In Poland, the document that confirms the persons’ Polish ancestry and descent is Karta Polaka (Pole’s card).
- by investment: some countries grant a Golden Visa through property purchasing and others provide expedited residency procedures for property owners. Poland belongs to the latter: people who have a real estate or operating business in this country can count on faster residency obtaining;
- by living and working or doing business: you can obtain permanent residency after 5 years of legal living and work in the certain EU country. You need to have a stable, reasonable, regular income (for example, around 150 EUR in Poland) and registered place of residence (dwelling place). Besides, an applicant must have a public health insurance
Unless you gain the permanent residence by family ties, you can apply for EU permanent residence only after temporary residence permits (TRP) obtaining.
By Eurostat data, Poland is the first of the EU countries by a number of EU residence permit granting in 2016. United Kingdom is on the second place in that rating (117 thousand persons) and Germany is on the third (40 thousand persons). Most of the people, who aspired to polish residency gaining, had got it for employment-related reasons. That means that Poland is quite open for people who want to live and work in the advanced European country.
You shouldn’t pay a lot of money for Polish residency: the living costs are quite cheap and business environment is developed enough for successful company growth. All that reasons make Poland the country with the easiest permanent residency in Europe.
You may live in any EU country and concurrently establish cooperation in any other EU member: holding EU resident card, you can travel freely over Schengen area 6 months per year. With a Polish passport you can work in any other EU country with TRP or PRP, you can conduct business in another country and after some time might get permanent residency there.
