Immigrants, Migrants, the Pomerania Perspective

Pomerania, due to its unique location has always been a melting pot. Foreigners have always been a part of our community, enriching our culture by bringing in bits of their culture and food. Between 2014-2019 the number of residence permits (of different types) granted increased by almost 2.5 times and continue to grow. The Office for Foreigners reports that 73% of applications for residence submitted in 2019 were related to work opportunities. The growing number of immigrants and migrants has created a need for strategies and solutions to help them legalise and integrate. This is especially true for migrants who are here or are looking at coming to Pomerania because it provides them with a safe haven and socio-economic opportunities.
