I’m just a curious guy who knows where to look for information and who to call. A guy who wants to fight against the walls and borders that are growing around the globe.
My name is Maciek Stopa. I’m Polish and I live in Kraków. Each time that I have to deal with official matters I think about how much harder it must be for expats in Poland. So here I am, ready to make it easier for you. I’m not an expert, nor a lawyer, nor an official. I don’t even write in perfect English. I’m just a curious guy who knows where to look for information and who to call. A guy who wants to fight against the walls and borders that are growing around the globe. Let’s make journeys and relocation as easy and cheap as possible.
How does it work?
You ask – I answer. All for free. Easy as that.
You can contact me through my Facebook page, or through the form here. Ask about anything in Poland: banks, schools, work, legalization procedures, studies, the best shops, food costs, doctors… whatever comes to your mind. I don’t guarantee that I know the answer and in many cases I will be only able to recommend you professional advisers for particular fields, but if you check the reviews on my Facebook page, you may find that I know a thing or two.
It’s highly possible that I’ve been asked a question similar to yours. In this case I will send you an answer within 2 working days. If the question is new I may need more time for research.
Remember: I am neither an official nor a legal adviser. You may always ask me for official information sources or contact details for someone who will be able to help you professionally.
Why do I do this?
The main goal of JAP is to build the most extensive information source in English for foreigners living in Poland.
I also want to build a concierge business for foreign visitors and residents in Poland.
By learning about your struggles and helping you respond to them I’ll in turn be making my services more useful, accurate, and caring. A brand is built by a community and I invite you to build it with me.
