Non EU / EEA students need to arrive in Poland with a student visa obtained at Polish Embassy or Consulate in their country of residence. It is important to remember that visas are granted for a maximum of three months. In order to extend the stay in Poland, it is necessary to apply for a residence permit for the specified time in the Voivodeship office 45 days before visa expiry date. For further assistance students are strongly urged to contact the International Relations Office of their university. More practical information about: coming to Poland, legalizing your stay, medical care and insurance, driving licenses, diplomatic missions in Poland is available at www.msz.gov.pl (Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs).

9. For students

Medical care in Poland is not free of charge. Health insurance is mandatory for all students for the duration of their stay in Poland. The students from non-EU / EEA countries are recommended to buy medical insurance in their home country or immediately after their arrival in Poland. Otherwise students are required to pay for any health service they get. Foreign students are also advised to purchase third party liability insurance and accident insurance.

EU citizens living in Poland are legible for free health services, presenting their European Health Insurance Card (EHIC). EU citizens do not have insurance in their country of residence and non-EU citizens may sign an agreement with the National Health Fund and purchase insurance for the monthly fee of 40 PLN. Under the bilateral agreement the citizens of the UK, Sweden and Slovakia are entitled to free medical care. Under the agreement Czech Republic students are entitled to the necessary medical care in cases of sudden illness or accident.
