    According to Polish immigration regulations, foreign workers must have the appropriate visas and work permits. Employee work permits must be obtained and sponsored by a locally regulated and established firm, which can be difficult for newcomers to the Polish market. Visas will only be issued if no acceptable Polish candidate can be found for a position, as Poland is notorious for being rather rigid with its visa requirements for foreigners.
