Visa to Poland

There are different factors that influence if you need a visa to enter Poland or not. This will depend on your nationality, reason of your stay, length of your stay, family relations, etc.

When you come to Poland, you do not only cross the Polish border. These are also the borders of the European Union (EU) and the Schengen Area. There is no passport and border control at the internal borders in the Schengen Area.

EU members

If you are an EU citizen, you can enter Poland without a visa. All you need is a valid travel document or your national ID. It is recommended to have your passport with you if you are planning to travel outside of the European Union during your stay in Poland.

If you stay in Poland for longer than 3 months, you need to register your stay.

Non-EU members

If you are a non-EU member, you will need your valid travel document (passport) to enter Poland and a visa if you are coming from a country that is not exempt from visas to Poland.

There are a lot of countries whose citizens are not required to hold visa when entering Poland for less than 90 days. The full list is published by the Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs:

List of countries whose nationals may enter Poland without a visa.

Polish Consulates are responsible for issuing visa. If Polish delegation is not present in your country, you can contact Polish consular office in another country. The Ministry of Polish Affairs provides corresponding contact information:

It is always worth checking with your local Polish embassy for updated information if you require visa or not to enter Poland.
