What should I do if I want to resign from protection in Poland?
A citizen of Ukraine who wishes to resign from temporary protection in Poland may do so by submitting an appropriate declaration to the municipality authority (the authority where he/she obtained his/her PESEL number). The declaration may also be sent by post, by registered mail.
In order to inform the commune office about such a trip, an appropriate statement must be submitted on an official form (template form).
In the case of staying outside Poland, this can be done through a proxy.
Submission of this declaration will result in the deprivation of the rights granted in Poland.
The declaration must be signed.
It should be remembered that a foreigner will automatically lose temporary protection if he or she crosses the external Schengen border for more than 30 days (even if he or she has not made such a declaration).
If, on the other hand, he/she is traveling within Schengen, such a declaration is necessary to ensure that the relevant information is registered by the Polish authorities.
