Companies fear Ukrainians’ departures due to the mobilisation law


A new mobilisation law took effect on 18 May in Ukraine and Polish entrepreneurs are concerned about its consequences. Employers assure that they do not intend to dismiss employees who will need to apply for valid documents in Ukraine. Fortunately, current Polish regulations do not automatically render a foreigner’s stay illegal upon the expiration of their travel documents. Although article 288 of the Act on Foreigners (Journal of Laws of 2023, item 519) requires individuals from other countries to possess a valid travel document during their stay in Poland, this is not a condition for legal stay or work. People fleeing the war and covered by the special act (Journal of Laws of 2024, item 167) will be able to stay in Poland until September 30, 2025, without needing to apply for a residence permit.
