NCBJ Welcome Point

Welcome Pont

The main purpose of NCBJ Welcome Point is to support the international community. We guide and help researchers coming to NCBJ worldwide and develop their careers at the NCBJ. We help them with the process of relocating to Poland. We also assist our employees and doctoral students in everyday life at NCBJ.

The Welcome Point will help you with:

  1.  residence permits, visas and long-term stay permissions,
  2.  arranging necessary documents and registrations with local authorities,
  3.  finding accommodation,
  4.  setting up banking / financial services,
  5.  finding a school for children,
  6.  informing about social security, healthcare & childcare,
  7.  arranging Polish and other language training,
  8.  introduction to Polish culture and customs.

The Project is financed by the Polish National Agency for Academic Exchange under the Welcome to Poland Programme (2021).
