Since the beginning of the 90s, the transformation of the political and economic structure of the region of Central Europe and Eastern led to new migratory trends, especially in Poland. In the past 17 years, Poland has become the country of asylum and passage of thousands of immigrants – both legal illegal hows – and refugee. The largest national group of non-EU immigrants in Central European countries comes from their eastern neighbours – Russia, Moldova, Ukraine and Belarus – and Asia – Viet Nam and Armenia.
