Foreigners, including EU citizens

If you are a citizen of another EU Member State, you can register business activity on the basis of the same principles as citizens of Poland.

If you are a citizen of the EU, who has a registered business activity in your Member State, you may provide services in Poland through a branch of your enterprise or on the basis of temporary cross-border provision of services.

You take the same steps if you are a Polish citizen and you have registered business activity in another EU Member State.

If you are a foreigner from beyond the EU, depending on the country of origin, the possibility of registering business activity may be restricted. Just like in the case EU citizens, if you have a registered business activity in your native country, you can operate in Poland through a branch of your enterprise.

If you are a foreigner and you want to know more about setting up and conducting business activity in Poland, read the information in the section Foreigners.
