My wife of 26 years is obtaining her Polish citizenship. We plan to purchase an apartment in Krakow for extended stays.
I am an American citizen. Will I have to leave Poland after being there 90 days and wait 180 days before I can return or will can I stay longer because I am married to a Polish citizen?

I will be moving to Poland from Seattle in March with my husband and daughter. Any tips you can give me, would be greatly appreciated. Anyone know of information on banking and cell phone service? Also, I am diabetic and I am not sure how common it is in Poland. We will have health insurance through my husband's employer. I thought I'd read you could bring prescriptions from my current doctor and health records to fill my medication. Would I go to a pharmacy for this? I've read you can go to the pharmacy instead of going to see a doctor for a lot of health concerns.

Sorry for all the questions. I'm trying to find out ahead of time. Other than that, I've been learning polish on my own. My husband's company is going to set us up with lessons, but I figured it's better to get started on it. I'm very excited to move to Warsaw. One more question, can you buy hair dye at beauty supply types store like in the US?

Thanks so much!

PS...how do you pronounce cukrzyca and how would I say I am diabetic, in polish?

Hi there,

Great news that you will move to Poland - it is very nice country and I am sure that you and your family will have a good time Smile Here are the answers for your questions:

1. Banks are on every major street, so you can just step in to open an account. Probably they will ask for two documents to prove your identity as a foreigner. You can find in Poland the most of global brands, so it is up to you which one you will trust.
2. For cell phones you have 4 major companies to choose - Tmobile, Orange, Play and Plus + some small pre-paid operators.
3. Diabetes is as common as in the whole world. I don't have knowledge whether you can realize your prescriptions from USA or not. But you can go to polish doctor with your medical history and you will get new prescriptions, which next you will purchase in the farmacy.
4. Don't worry about language issues. In most places you can communicate in english. Warsaw is very cosmopolitan city and you can meet people from all around the world Smile There are also some good schools for foreigners.
5. You can buy hair dye at beauty supply store or in any shopping mall.
6. About pronouncing cukrzyca I suggest to check here translate.google.pl/#en/pl/diabetes (just click on the speaker icon).

PS. If you need some help with finding a flat to buy or rent, me and my agency would be happy to help with that - fill the form
