In this paper we present a permanent way of connecting two different fiber types. One of them is a novel fiber based on polymer as the main construction material, with a build-in photonic structure in its cladding. The second type is a typical silica single-mode fiber. Due to the differences of base materials, thermal bonding is impossible in order to keep both structures intact. However, chemical bonding by using appropriate materials can connect two types of fibers without disturbing their inner structures. The additional advantage of the proposed chemical "splicing" method is that an adhesive can act as an index matching material decreasing losses.
