Nepalis in Poland are migrants from Nepal to Poland, mainly expatriate workers and international students. According to the NRN-NCC in Poland, there are about 100 Nepalis living in the country.[1]

Migration History

The first Nepali to settle in Poland arrived in 1965. Immigration from Nepal grew in the 1990s' as few Nepalis came for a jobs as chefs in Indian Restaurants and as workers in Indian Textile Companies. A few of them came with families. Nepalis have been coming to the country for further studies, mostly in the medical field. In 2007, there are about 40 Nepalese students studying in Poland though many of them came with hope to get entry to other highly paid countries in Europe and work there.

Today, Nepalis, along with other Asian groups, usually work in industry, building, services and finance sectors. Most find employment in the central region of Mazovia, the northern region of Pomerania and southern region of Lesser Poland.[2] The rise in foreign investment, especially in the finance sector, IT outsourcing and building industry have brought skilled, but cheap, labor to Poland. About 121 workers from Nepal had managed to get jobs in Poland through individual channel in 2008 and 2009, according to the Department of Foreign Employment (DoFE).[3]
