Minor victims of human traffickingPrint

Minor victims of human trafficking, i.e. persons under 18 years of age, are covered by the Human trafficking victims/witnesses support and protection programme realised by KCIK.

If a minor victim of human trafficking is staying in Poland without a legal custodian, the guardianship court will issue a decision placing him in a special education care facility prepared for the admission of minor human trafficking victims or in a foster family, and a legal representative will be appointed, i.e. guardian.

The guardian represents the child in proceedings before the guardianship court and in other courts, e.g. connected with the legalisation of stay in Poland or the arrangement of return to the country of origin (provided that it is for the benefit of the child and that the procedure will allow the child to return to the home country safely).
