I am a German citizen, I have been living in Poland for 10 years, I have a document confirming the right of permanent residence, which expired on April 24th, 2020. Due to the suspension of customer services rendered at voivodeship offices, I am unable to request the replacement of the document. What should I do?

Under the special arrangements introduced due to the coronavirus pandemic, the periods of validity of documents confirming the right of permanent residence of EU citizens are extended by law. If the end of the period of validity of the aforementioned document will fall within the period of an epidemic emergency or state of epidemics, it shall be extended until the 30th day following the date of cancellation of a state (epidemic emergency or state of epidemic) which was imposed as last. Such an extension is automatic and does not require lodging any additional applications.
