    The invitation from the Voivode for the Polish national working visa D08 is an official confirmation that the Polish side has invited the owner to carry out work.

    Benefits of the invitation of the Voivode:

    • opens visa for a period 360/360 (per year)
    • visa corridors cancels the previous visa 180/360
    • the right to work legally in Poland
    • visit for tourism Schengen countries
    • Consul not refuse a visa on the invitation of the Voivode

    For the benefit of viewers could you kindly elaborate the qualifications one needs to get such an invitation from Voivode. It is interesting to see the benefits that this Visa offers its owners. What kind of work would be expected by the authorities from the owners of such Visas?

    You're absolutely right! An invitation from the Voivode for a Polish National Working Visa D08 does offer several significant benefits for the visa applicant. Here's a breakdown of the advantages you mentioned:

    • Long Validity Period (360/360): This is a major benefit. Unlike some visas with shorter durations, the D08 visa allows the holder to stay and work in Poland for a full year (360 days).

    • Visa Corridors and Avoiding 180/360 Rule: This can be a complex regulation, but essentially it means you can leave and re-enter Poland more freely without being restricted by the 180-day limit that applies to some Schengen zone visas.

    • Legal Work Authorization: The D08 visa explicitly grants the holder the legal right to work in Poland for the sponsoring employer.

    • Schengen Zone Access for Tourism: While the primary purpose of the visa is work, it also allows the holder to travel freely within the Schengen zone for tourism purposes.

    • High Visa Approval Rate: The invitation from the Voivode carries significant weight with Polish authorities. In most cases, the Polish Consul is unlikely to refuse a visa application that's backed by such an invitation.
    Overall, the invitation from the Voivode streamlines the visa application process for the D08 visa and offers significant advantages for the foreign worker. If you're considering working in Poland, this is definitely a visa category worth exploring.
