Resident permit cases can take a long time (see here). While you wait for a decision, you may need to leave home for a few days. Whether it’s because of holidays, family visit or any other reason, you definitely should take precautions to ensure that you won’t miss any requests from Urząd Wojewódzki. Otherwise, it is possible that during your absence, Urząd will send you a letter and you won’t be at home to pick it up. And this may result in negative consequences (you can learn more here).
