On 11 February 2019 a new minimum salary requirement for Blue Card applications came into force. The new minimum salary is PLN 6,877.55 gross per month (as opposed to PLN 6,407.27 applicable previously).

The new threshold applies to all applications submitted from 11 February 2019 onwards, and to applications which were pending on the date. It does not apply to Blue Cards issued before 11 February 2019. An employer who has an employee who holds a Blue Card issued before that date does not have to adjust the employee’s salary to meet the new threshold.
