You are a foreigner in Poland and want to invite someone here for any reason? You need an invitation document.
What is the invitation document?
The invitation letter is a document confirming that the financial measures of the invited foreigner are sufficient to cover the expenses related to the planned stay in Poland, including accommodation and meals and the return trip to the country or place of residence. Or the cost of transit to a third country where it is allowed to enter.
The invitation letter does not have the right to work in Poland.
This document can be presented during visa application or during border inspection.
Note: The inviter is obliged to pay the instruction fee related to the accommodation of the foreigner. If he fails to fulfill the obligations arising from the invitation, the treasury or other entity may file a claim with the inviter in court proceedings. He shall also bear the costs associated with the possible issuance and enforcement of decisions that force foreigners to return.
