Poland's new draft law proposes changes to its Residence Permit and Blue Card rules

On 9 February 2024, the Polish government published a draft law that would amend the Foreigners Act. The proposed amendments include the introduction of an electronic submission portal for residence permit applications and changes to existing Blue Card regulations. The legislative approval process for the draft law is expected to begin shortly, with the law likely to be passed by the Polish cabinet in the second quarter of 2024. The proposed amendments are expected to benefit employers and enable them to further attract highly qualified professionals by introducing expanded immigration benefits for third-country nationals and reducing application processing times.
