I posted earlier(post 67) that
'My preparation is that I am applying for a Polish Temporary Resident Permit, which will permit me to avoid the Schengen 90 day limit, which applies to whole area.'
Yesterday this application ran into difficulties.
Polish Government will not process an application from a EU Citizen because currently such person does not need a Permit. This despite my pointing out that UK passport holders have been issued with the equivalent (Permit de Sejours) in France.
Even registering my address here took up 1/2 hour and about 20 pages of paper(incl. copies). Basia's Sister's application to renew her Polish passport took about 50 pages. Where do they store all this bumpf? I am thinking of buying storage units to lease to the government. Maybe they input it all into computers - if so why the hell do they not put it in directly? Oh, I know, then the stamps and ink pads would be redundant.
I understand where Franz Kafka got the material for his books - 60 years ago, 'Plus ca Change'
