How long the TRC process really takes?
Only God knows.
Time of process on 80% depends on Immigration Office. You can control only 20%.
What includes 80%?

1) Input of information from TRC application form into "Pobyt 2" system,
2) Prime verification of submitted package by post (by Poczta Polska),
3) Preparing and sending of fingerprint letter invitation,
4) Appointment in Foreign Department with you to submit biometrics,
5) Again the Input of information into "Pobyt 2" system,
6) Again the verification of submitted package,
7) Sending request to Border Guard, Police and Security Service of Poland to check your stay,
8) Sending the letter with a list of documents required for TRC in Poland,
9) Getting positive/negative answers from the Border Guard, Police and Security Service,
10) Verification of submitted documents and making of a final opinion,
11) Case review with Power of Attorney in Immigration Office (if needed),
12) Preparing of project of decision,
13) Updating "Pobyt 2" system and online status,

Of course in the process Immigration Office interacts with: Post Office, Police, Border Guard, Security service. It makes process time also depending on them.

By the way the average amount of people changing in Immigration Office during your case is 6-7.

Also sometimes "Pobyt 2" system has bugs. 3 times per 1 year fingerprints system is out of services.
