COST OF LIVING IN WARSAW

Living in Warsaw is cheaper than in western European cities.

The cost of living depends on individual needs and lifestyle.

Approximately 600 to 800 Euro per month is needed to cover the cost of accommodation, transportation and food. If you live very modestly, you could get by with 500 Euro per month.

RESIDENCE PERMIT

All international students staying in Poland longer than three months are required to obtain a temporary residence permit. The permit is issued for a period of a student’s stay in Poland up to three years. Evidence of the permit is a Temporary Residence Card (Karta pobytu czasowego) which is an identity card for foreigners in Poland. Together with a passport, it allows passing the borders as often as you like without a visa. We will help you get your residence permit.

HEALTH INSURANCE

Health insurance is mandatory for all students for the whole duration of their stay in Poland. International students are advised to purchase third party liability insurance and accident insurance in their home countries. EU/EFTA citizens should get a European Health Insurance Card valid during their stay in Poland.

Non-EU/EFTA citizens can sign a health insurance agreement with the Polish National Health Fund (Narodowy Fundusz Zdrowia) or with one of the private clinics in Warsaw.

LIFE IN WARSAW
