The aim of this study was to explore issues related to emigration of Polish Professional and their return to Poland. The reasons, perceived advantages and disadvantages of each departure and return, as well as further life plans were examined. The research was carried out using semi- structured interviews, the contents of which were then subject to qualitative analysis. The results indicated the desire for personal and professional development as major goals of emigration. Reasons for returning to Poland included: a desire to function in the circle of close friends and family, to prevent child marginalization among peers in the country of migration and to maintain ties with Poland. The professionals researched during their stay abroad were positive about their decision to migrate. Return to Poland is perceived by them as a challenge because of the difficulty of finding employment in line with their very specialized professional competence gained during their time abroad. However, the professionals studied after returning to Poland were mostly well adapted to this situation.
