I have been offered a Software Engineer position in Krakow. My company is handling doing all the work permit stuff for me. My application has been filed with the authorities and I'm waiting for approval. But I have few questions on my mind.
1) How long it will take for the approval of the work permit? Few people are saying 3 months, others say 15 days - I am not clear on it.
2) What would be a good salary for this position?
3) Is cost of living is high or low?
4) Is the country is safe?
Can anyone please share their thoughts or info? It would be really helpful for me as I'm more confused.
There is some information on Cost of Living in Poland on this website, but in general, Poland is very reasonable compared to elsewhere in Europe, but salaries are slightly less lucrative than in other destinations.
There are a number of other pros and cons of living in Poland, but safety isn't a huge concern.
Unfortunately, I can't say how long the visa process will take - but it may be a good idea for you to contact your nearest Polish embassy to get an estimated timeline.
Hope this helps!
