What is the change? Poland has updated minimum salary requirements for workers on local employment contracts, posted workers and ICT mobility permit holders. Authorities have also put in place new minimum income thresholds for residency permits.
What does the change mean? Foreign workers on local employment contracts must earn at least 2,250 złoty (about US$601 or €524) per month. Posted workers and ICT mobility permit holders must be paid according to the applicable regional salary minimum. Residency permit holders must be supported by an income of at least 528 zloty per month.
Additional information: The salary minimum for local employment contracts affects foreigners hired locally throughout Poland, i.e., those holding Type A work permits or residency permits with right to work. The minimum salary threshold for posted workers (work permits C, D and E for assignments) and ICT mobility permit holders depends on the administrative region, or voivodship, where the applicant applies for the permit. Finally, the minimum income thresholds for residency permits apply to all foreigners applying for residency permits, including dependent family members.
Analysis & Comments: Employers should be sure to account for the new salary minimums when planning their budgets. Foreigners who are submitting applications for residency permits need to be sure that the new minimum income thresholds per family member are satisfied. Polish authorities are expected to announce new EU Blue Card salary thresholds in February.
