The ePUAP platform can save you a lot of time – it allows online communication with public administration. You can submit electronic documents, for instance your tax declaration, register your address (“zameldowanie”), replace your old driving license, register a new company in CEIDG, register a new car, and many more – online from home, without the need to go to the tax office or city hall.
In order to use ePUAP, you need to have a “trusted profile” (“profil zaufany”). Let’s see how you can get one!
How to create a Trusted Profile in the ePUAP platform?
1. Create an account on the ePUAP platform (http://epuap.gov.pl)
Go to ePUAP > Tab – Get registered
2. Log in to the created account.
ePUAP > Tab – Log in
3. Fill in an application for creating a trusted profile.
ePUAP> Tab – My account >
My trusted profiles >
Submit your application for a trusted profile.
4. Send the application.
E-mail – Confirm sending the application
5. Go to your confirmation point to verify your identity.
Once you have performed steps 1-4, you have to go to a confirmation point. You can find the addresses of all the confirmation points here: https://pz.gov.pl/pz/confirmationPointAddressesList. At the confirmation point, you will need your ID or passport so that your identity can be validated.
If you don’t speak Polish: before you go to the confirmation point, print out the following text, and take it with you (and don’t forget your ID or passport):
Nazywam się XXXXXXX. Nie mówię po polsku.
Przyszłam potwierdzić profil zaufany E-puap. Wniosek jest już wypełniony online na stronie rządowej więc trzeba go tylko potwierdzić.
The text above says [Good day, My name is XXXX. I don’t speak Polish. I came here to confirm my E-puap trusted profile. The application is already submitted, it only needs to be validated.]. Replace the XXXXXXX with your name!
After you have performed steps 1-4, you can go with this paper to a confirmation point to validate your identity (step 5).
Once your identity is validated, you will have your Trusted Profile and will be able to use the ePUAP platform.
