Poland’s ambassador to the UK has written to Poles urging them to “seriously consider returning to their homeland” after Brexit. 
Polish Ambassador Urges Poles Living In The UK To Seriously Consider Returning To Their Homeland Post-Brexit
In a letter to the 800,000 Polish people who currently live in the UK, Arkady Rzegocki – who has represented Warsaw in the UK since 2016 – said Poland “regrets” the UK’s decision to leave the EU. 
“I also encourage you to seriously consider the possibility of returning to your homeland,” Rzegocki said. 
“The rapidly growing economy of our country creates more and more opportunities for citizens for development and good living conditions in the country.
“Soon, Great Britain, which has been home to thousands of Poles for generations, will most likely cease to be a member of the European Union - which we regret, but we also see this process as an opportunity to strengthen the bond between our two countries.”
Meanwhile, Rzegocki also shared his worries about the settled-status application process, writing that just 27% of Poles living in the UK have applied for settled status and branding the figure “alarmingly low”. Drodzy Rodacy na Wyspach,W związku z prawdopodobnym wyjściem UK z UE i wymogiem rządu 🇬🇧 dot. uzyskania #settledstatus, zwracam Państwa uwagę na konieczność złożenia takiego wniosku w sytuacji, jeśli chcecie Państwo pozostać w UK po #brexit.Więcej na https://t.co/wbv6F7SHRgpic.twitter.com/BprYtnDLx0— Arkady Rzegocki 🇵🇱 (@ArkadyRzegocki) September 17, 2019Speaking on BBC Radio 4′s Today programme on Wednesday, the ambassador said: “It is straightforward, but we are concerned about this process a little.
“42% of EU citizens who have had applied to achieve settled-status have had problems. Many have received pre-settled status.
“Many people do not realise they have to register, as they have lived here for many years… Even if they have resident status, they still have to register.”
Even people who have lived in the UK five or 10 years have had problems, he added. 
Meanwhile, Poland and the Polish economy are growing, and living standards in the country are improving, Rzegocki said. 
“I think it is a very good opportunity to come back to Poland. I think you can achieve your goals in both Britain and Poland.”
When questioned on how many Poles may choose to go back, Rzegocki said: “It is difficult to predict. Last year 116,000 left the country. There are still about a million here but you can see there is a discussion being had.
“We are doing the best to keep our relationship as close as possible, as there is a long friendship between our countries.”Related... Jeremy Corbyn Hints He Will Stay Neutral In Second Referendum Exclusive: Brexit Party Candidate Quits Over 'Islamophobic' Social Media Posts
