This presentation aims to to present the scale of the phenomenon of immigration of older people to Poland, the demographic structure of people arriving and the directions of immigration
over the last decade. It can be assumed that Poland, following a wave of economic emigration of its citizens, will become a country with increased immigration, following the example of countries that joined the European Union several years earlier, e.g., Ireland, Greece, or Spain. In the 21 st century we observe the growing spatial mobility of older adults, often from the North of Europe to the South. Part of these movements are return migrations. In the case of Poland, senior immigrants are usually people under the age of seventy who have
Polish citizenship. The spatial distribution of the inflow from abroad and the countries of origin of older immigrants suggest that we are dealing with the re-emigration of Poles leaving as early as the 20th century.
